Preparation

Step 1

Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick skillet; add cubed chicken and cook for 8 minutes, or until chicken is browned and internal temperature reaches 165F degrees. Set aside.

Dice tomatoes and save the juices in a small bowl.

Combine tomatoes, tomato juices, basil, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper, & half of the minced garlic; set aside. You can also make this ahead of time and refrigerate for 2 hours, covered.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy bottom saucepan over medium-low heat.

Add remaining garlic and saute for about 20 seconds, or until soft and tender - do not burn the garlic.

Increase heat to medium high and stir in previously prepared tomato salad.

Add tomato sauce to pan and bring to a boil.

Add prepared pasta to sauce pan and toss around until coated. Set aside.

In a small pan, bring to a boil vinegar and sugar; reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook until sauce turns to a thick syrup. Remove from heat and add to prepared pasta.

Transfer pasta to a platter.

Arrange prepared chicken breasts on top of pasta.
