2
teaspoons olive or vegetable oil

1
lb plum (Roma) tomatoes (6 medium), coarsely chopped
1
tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Add chicken to this pasta dish. After cooking the garlic, add about 1/2 pound cubed boneless skinless chicken; cook until no longer pink in center.

A crusty French baguette is a nice addition and adds a different texture to this meal.
