Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add onion and stir, cooking until soft and nearly translucent.

Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Add chicken and cook until just browned.

Stir in the pasta, tomatoes, chicken broth, lemon juice, water, basil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and continue to stir often, uncovered, for about nine minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
