Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Coat the chicken with the lemon zest and juice, tarragon, salt and pepper. Put in a large, shallow ovenproof dish or roasting tin in one layer. Brush lightly with a little oil, then grill for 6 mins. Turn the chicken over and add the tomatoes to the dish, cut-side up, brushing them lightly with oil. Grill for a further 6-8 mins until the chicken is cooked and lightly browned and the tomatoes are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling water according to pack instructions. Drain well, reserving 150ml of the cooking water, then return to the pan. Remove the chicken from the dish and cut into chunks. Add to the pasta with the tomatoes, cooking water and pan juices. Toss everything together well and serve.

Quick and easy, just enough time to not dry out the chicken and leaves it juicy and full of flavour.

i love this recipe, it's easy and delicious, but i have to say, i added to it "tomatoe and olive" ready pasta sauce where it gave it a very nice flavor.

Simple, but bland, def low fat, boring, no kick, will not be doing again.

Really nice, but i think next time I will slice the Chicken and put it on top of a heap of pasta so it keeps it's flavor more. We had it with garlic bread and some spinach and I also put some garlic with the lemon and tarragon. Lovely.

it was nice and simple - i tried to adap this recipe for one but i don't think it worked incredible well as there was no juices to speak of at the end, but nice enough though...

A bit bland. Next time I may add more ingredients, possibly some mushrooms and spinach

I used basil and Mint instead of Tarragon which I didn't have in. I guess my dish might be missing it's influence but the mint tasted lovely.

It was simple enough, I just didn't find it terribly exciting.
