Prepare pasta according to the directions on the package. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

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. Serve.
