Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 pounds) cut in cubes
salt and freshly ground white pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2lb of Cherry Tomatoes each cut in half
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons drained capers
1 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Fresh basil leaves

 

Instructions

Sprinkle the chicken well with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil and butter in a heavy-bottomed skillet. Add the chicken breasts and sauté over medium-high heat, turning the pieces often until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Scatter the garlic around the chicken. Cook briefly; add the tarragon, tomatoes, vinegar, capers, wine, and tomato paste. Stir to dissolve the brown particles adhering to the bottom of the skillet.

Blend well. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked.
Sprinkle with fresh basil leaves, mix with bow-tie pasta.
