Chicken Tagliatelle with lemon and onion

Chicken Tagliatelle with Lemon

1 lemon plus zest

Good pinch or two of Thyme dried herb & mixed herbs plus Aromat

Salt and pepper

Strips of chicken into small bite size pieces (chicken is grilled in conventional oven). 179grams for one person.

2 Tagliatelle pasta

8 small baby tomatoes halved

Olive oil

1 challotte or half red onion chopped

Small sprinkle of white cider vinegar

You might have seen similar but this is my take on grilled chicken in a conventional oven!!!

Put grill up to full and heat.

Meanwhile prepare chicken by putting in oven proof dish (small lasagna dish I used) remember cut chicken into bite size pieces.

Wash hands grate zest of lemon and then juice the rest of lemon sprinkle zest over chicken and pour juice in

Add all herbs and season along with white cider vinegar to taste. Massage all ingredients into chicken.

Wash hands again add, challotte or half onion chopped, tomatoes halved and olive oil and little more salt put all this in grill.

Keep close eye on turn grill down slightly and take out and turn occasionally so as chicken is cooked thoroughly and completely. This takes about 25 mins in hot grill.

While chicken is cooking put the Tagliatelle in boiling water and cook as per packet instructions.

Once pasta is ready keep about 170ml back with the pasta put back on heat add the cooked chicken, tomatoes, challotes (all from lasagne dish) into pot continue to cook on simmering heat for five to ten minutes should have lovely sauce from herbs and tomatoes and onion and chicken be lovely and tender. Lovely easy dish to make.

Make sure all ingredients are mixed in pot and serve.
