  • 2 tsp (10 ml) dried herbs of your choice 
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) pepper 
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried chili flakes 


  • 2 gray shallots, chopped 
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped 
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped 
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) store-bought roasted peppers 
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) tomato paste 
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) salt-free chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) grated Parmesan cheese 

Chicken noodles

  • 2 chicken breasts (or 325 g) 
  • 2 portions spaghetti, cooked

  1. Place all the ingredients for the spice mix in a bowl. Mix well and set aside. 
  2. Place chicken on a plate. Add a drizzle of oil and half the spice mixture. Coat well. 
  3. In a skillet over high heat, sprayed with oil, sear the outside of the chicken breasts for 1 minute on each side. Remove from pan and set aside. 
  4. In the same skillet, over medium heat, add shallots, garlic, tomatoes and roasted peppers. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. 
  5. Add the second half of the spice mix, tomato paste, Greek yogurt and chicken broth to the pan. Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Place in a food processor with the Parmesan cheese and purée until smooth. 
  6. Return sauce to skillet over medium heat and add chicken breasts. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 6 minutes or until chicken breasts are cooked. Remove chicken breasts from pan and let stand 5 minutes before slicing. 
  7. Add spaghetti and basil to pan. Mix well to coat. 
  8. Serve spaghetti in sauce with chicken slices, Parmesan cheese and additional basil. 


When you cook your pasta, reserve ¼ cup (60 ml) of pasta cooking water. This starch-rich water will help your sauce coat your pasta in the pan as it finishes cooking!
