Putting it All Together

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and herbs. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until golden brown. Remove the chicken to a plate.
  2. Add onions and garlic to the same skillet and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add broth, then scrape the bottom of the skillet to loosen the bits. Cook for another 2-3 minutes to let the broth reduce. 
  3. Add marinara sauce and red pepper flakes, then simmer for 10 minutes. 
  4. Turn off the heat and add the cooked and drained pasta, ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, and basil. Add the cooked chicken on top. Toss to combine, then add more of any of the above ingredients until the sauce is just how you like it. 
  5. Serve with a sprinkling of Parmesan and a little basil on top.
