DIRECTIONS

  • Begin by heating the oil in the frying pan until it's very hot.
  • Wipe the chicken breasts with paper towel, then season them with salt and pepper.
  • Saute them in the hot oil over a medium heat until they are a rich golden colour n both sides.
  • This will take 5 or 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a plate and add the garlic and chilli to the pan and fry these briefly for about 30 seconds.
  • After that, add the tomatoes, tomato puree, olives, capers, chopped basil and some seasoning.
  • Stir everything well, bringing it up to a gentle simmer, then return the chicken breasts to the pan, skin side up, pushing them well down into the sauce and basting a little over the top.
  • Simmer for 40 to 45 minutes, uncovered, until the chicken has cooked and the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  • About 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time, put a large pan of salted water on to heat and bring it up to the boil.
  • Then boil the tagliatelle according to the package directions.
  • After that, quickly drain and serve with the chicken, sauce spooned over, tagliatelle on the side.
  • Garnish with the fresh sprigs of basil and enjoy!
