Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms (about 8 oz/250 g)
  • 1 sweet red pepper chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 jar (750 ml) pasta sauce
  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 12 oz linguine
  • 12 oz fettuccine
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. In saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken in batches. Transfer to plate.

Add onion, mushrooms, red pepper and basil to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally and adding up to 2 tbsp (25 mL) water if necessary to prevent sticking, for about 10 minutes or until mushrooms are browned.

Return chicken and accumulated juices to pan. Pour in pasta sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened and chicken is no longer pink inside. Stir in vinegar.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook linguine for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm; drain well. Divide among 4 bowls; top with sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
