Basil chicken with vermicelli

This is the ultimate comfort food on a rainy night - and quick to prepare. Add the crushed chillies if you want a bit of spice.

Used different ingredients. I love this recipe. I used fresh garden tomatoes, tripled the garlic, added dried oregano, and omitted salt. Because the tomato mixture doesn't really make a sauce, I added 225ml of white wine and 200ml chicken stock. Let everything simmer and it was simply delicious and light. The grated parmesan cheese is an essential finishing touch. I will definitely include this dish in my regular rotation. Thanks!

This meal was delicious - it was simple to prepare and make. I added additional garlic and a teaspoon garlic mayonnaise to the tomato sauce. By cooking the chicken first with the garlic and onion the sauce was more plentiful. This is a relatively light meal - filling but does not make you uncomfortably full as can happen with pasta meals

Used different ingredients. This was very good, i used penne instead. I sauteed the onion with garlic and chicken, along with salt pepper, oregano, crushed chillies, and added 1 tin chopped tomatoes. I put a pinch of sugar to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes. I tossed with the pasta and it was sooooo goood. Cheers!

Love this recipe. We have had it several times now. Normally when its a mad dash between coming home from work and going back out again to activities various. Brilliant for anyone with kids who do extra curricular activities!! Or for those occasions where you don't really want to cook
