I used a pack of 4 chicken breasts which I diced and then added to a pan with some oil that had been heating up with a teaspoon of dried "Italian herbs".  (I like letting the herbs warm up first to release their aroma's.)

I have this fab little gadget to zest lemons ... it results in these wonderful curls of zest.

After browning the meat, I added a sprinkling of the lemon zest and fresh thyme - letting the oils infuse with the chicken for a minute.

Next add the juice of one lemon, 1 and 1/2 cups of white wine and 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Bring to the boil and allow to bubble away for 5 minutes.

I used a heaped teaspoon of maizena (mixing it with some cold water first) and then added that to thicken the sauce. Simmer on a low heat and allow to reduce and thicken.

Cook your pasta (according to packet instructions) and add the sauce and chicken - letting it coat the pasta. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with lashing of parmigiana and some torn basil.
