Itlalian Chicken

As promised Italian Chicken. I made this up as I went along a few years ago, all the family enjoyed it so it became a weekly thing.

 So for two medium size meals you will need : -
1 large Chicken breast skinned.
1 Onion
1 Red Pepper
About 10 -15 Cherry Tomatoes
A handful of closed cup mushrooms
100 gm Tomato Paste
2 tsp Tomato Ketchup
2 tsp dried Italian Seasoning
½ tsp dried Oregano
½ tsp dried Coriander
3 cloves Garlic (crushed)
A Splash of Olive Oil
A Large Glass of Red Wine
Salt
Ground Black Pepper
150gm Penne (or any other pasta you prefer)

 Cut the chicken into strips and place in a pan with the olive oil, cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes each side, take the chicken out and put to one side. Chop the onion and pepper very finely and put into the pan with the oil and chicken juices and cook until softened, add all the herbs, garlic and the red wine give it a good stir and simmer for five minutes.

 Add the tomato paste and ketchup and stir until nice and thick then re-introduce the chicken and add the tomatoes, mushrooms, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

 Bring some salted water to the boil add the pasta to it and simmer for 12 minutes keeping the sauce simmering on a low heat for this time.

 When the pasta is done plate up and enjoy.
