  • 1 small onion or half a large onion, cut into thin slices (about ¾ cup)
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes slice in half lengthwise
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 2 breasts)
  • 16 ounces linguine uncooked
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 ounces Parmesan Cheese fresh, shredded


  • In a 5 quart saute pan or skillet, arrange onion slices, minced garlic, tomatoes, chicken, pasta, basil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Drizzle olive oil over the ingredients in the pan, then pour in water. Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, simmering and stirring for about 9 minutes or until pasta is tender. There will be some liquid left in the pan - this will help to create the sauce.
  • Add Parmesan cheese and toss to coat while the cheese melts.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
