  3. Add in the olive oil and chicken (both white and dark meat); season with salt and pepper.

I made this for dinner tonight (just got the 30-Minute Get Real Meals cookbook). I liked it...DH thought the powerful sauce would be better suited for sausage - he didn't like the chicken, but did essentially eat 2 helpings of pasta. I also thought the sauce was a bit runny. The only change I made was to use bacon instead of pancetta.
