Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil with the drizzle of oil. Rinse the pasta and add to the pan of boiling water. Leave to boil gently for at least 8 minutes.
In saucepan, heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, the oregano and chilli flakes.
Add the chicken, and cook and stir until browned and no longer pink at the centre.
Once chicken is nearly cooked, add 1 tablespoon of the red pesto, 1 teaspoon of the creme fraiche, the remaining 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and half of the sliced spring onions.
Keep an eye on the pasta; taste test to ensure pasta is soft all the way through. Keep the pasta in the hot water until the chicken is cooked.
Once chicken is brown and cooked through, lower the heat and add the rest of the creme fraiche from the pot, the remaining 1 tablespoon of red pesto and all but a teaspoon of the sliced spring onions you have left.
Stir this mixture together in the pan, heating gently.
Drain your pasta and add to a mixing bowl.
Add the spicy chicken mixture from the pan into the bowl and mix together with the pasta.
Serve up into 4 bowls. Sprinkle the remaining spring onions into each bowl, and sprinkle a teaspoon of the grated Grana Padano for a finishing touch on the dish.
