    Ingredients

    • 3 skinned chicken breasts
    • 1tbsp olive oil
    • 350g rigatoni pasta
    • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
    • 5 medium tomatoes, chopped
    • 400g pitted black olives, drained and chopped
    • 2tbsp capers (optional)

    Method

    • Season chicken with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and brush with olive oil. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan over a very high heat and cook the chicken for 5 mins on each side, until cooked through. Cut into strips.

    • Meanwhile cook the pasta in plenty of salted boiling water, until almost ‘al dente’. Drain and return to the pan. Stir in remaining ingredients and return the pan to a very low heat for 1min, stirring as the sauce heats up. Fold in the chicken and serve immediately.
