Quick Italian Chicken Casserole

  • Serves: 4-6
  • Duration: 5 mins

A quick and easy Italian chicken casserole you can make at home. Tender chicken breast, tomato and natural flavourings work together to create a lip-smacking pasta casserole.


  • 4-6 Free-range Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 large tomatoes (cut into 1 cm dice)
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
  • 100ml chicken stock
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 200-300g tagliatelle
  • Salt
  • 2-3 stalks fresh basil


  1. First heat the oil in a flameproof casserole over a medium high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Once the oil gets hot, sauté the chicken breasts - in batches if necessary
  2. Add the tomatoes and pour over the stock. Sprinkle with dried basil and season with lots of pepper.
  3. Place onto the hob and heat rapidly until boiling, then turn down the heat until just gently bubbling round the edges, cover and cook for approx. 20 minutes, moving the chicken around occasionally until cooked through.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, cook the tagliatelle in salted water until al dente. Drain in a colander and return to the pan. Add some olive oil and season with pepper.
  5. To serve, pile the pasta on warm plates and top with the chicken and sauce. Sprinkle over the fresh basil leaves and serve immediately.
  6. Serve with green salad.
