    1. Dice the 4 chicken breasts, and pop the mixed herbs in a mixing bowl with 1 tbsp oil. Mix herbs in bowl and add the diced chicken. Then mix together and cover with cling film and place in fridge for 2 hours.

I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I didn’t have any fresh herbs and used a full lemon so it was more lemon with herbs chicken! Added some passata for moisture to both pasta and the chicken and it was yum!

To create a spicier more indian dish add some tumeric, coriander, curry powder and paprika, and maybe even a pinch of chilli powder.
