Hearty Meal

In my humble opinion, nothing can compare with a hearty meal and a final episode of a great series. In my case, Season's 6 finale of Greys Anatomy. 
I know, some of you, like my father will be all like: EWWW
But we all know that that's not real blood! 
Plus, I've been watching this kind of shows since I was really young so I guess you could say I am used to it. 

Haha I just realized that I named my post HEARTY meal and ironically enough the episode I'm watching is when Derek gets shot on the chest. 

Okay so anyway, my meal of the day consisted on this really nice Aglioli Pasta with some tomato-honey chicken. 
Sounds weird, when I say it and you read it like that. But please oh please trust me when I say it was ultra delicious. 

For the pasta you just need some Spagetti, Olive Oil, Garlic, and about 50ml of the cooking water. 
For the Chicken you need: Chicken Breast cut into long slices (like for a chicken tender), a couple of dry tomatoes, Olive Oil, A clove of garlic and runny honey. 

So you put your water to cook the pasta and wait until it boils. 
Meanwhile, cut your tomato and your garlic (for the chicken) really thinly and small and add a little bit of olive oil, salt and ground pepper, and crunch it all up together with your hands. 
Next, add a pinch of salt to the water before adding your pasta. 
While your pasta cooks, rub your chicken on your tomato mixture and roll them up and pin it together so you have a roll with a tooth pick. 
Place a pan in medium heat add a little bit of olive oil and wait for it to heat up. 
I suppose, that your pasta should be done by now, so drain it but save some of the cooking water. 
Next add a nice drizzle of olive oil to another pan and heat it, add the garlic (which should be finely sliced) and wait for it to get some nice colour and when it does add your pasta, season, and toss it around the pan. Have a taste. 
Now add your chicken to the pan and cook it, it should take around 8 minutes (if your slices are thin like mine) while they are cooking add the honey, around a table spoon on each of your rolls.  
Turn them over and add some more honey on the other side. 
When your chicken is done, serve it over your pasta, turn on the TV and the DVD and pop in your favourite series finale and enjoy yourself. 

Now that I think it over, this recipe should have been posted on a lazy Friday, not Monday n.n
