Chicken and Mushrooms in Tomato Sauce with Chorizo and Linguini

Time 35 minutes
Effort Easy
Serves 4

2 chicken breast halves, skinned and boned, cut into small strips
1 shallot minced
8 small white mushrooms, halved or quartered
8 slices of chorizo (I use the Portuguese or Hungarian kind, non-spicy)
1 large tomato, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried chili peppers (for garnish - optional)
Linguini pasta (about 350 grams dried pasta)
3 cups Water for boiling
2 tsp salt
Fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

In a large skillet, saute the shallot and chicken pieces until the chicken has turned white. Add the tomato, sugar, salt and pepper and simmer covered until the tomatoes have dissolved and the chicken is cooked. Add the oregano, chorizo and mushrooms and simmer on low. Meanwhile, in a large pot, bring water and salt to a boil. Add the linguini and cook for approx. 20 minutes or until tender. Strain off water and divide into four portions on large plates. Spoon chicken over the pasta and sprinkle with chili peppers and grated cheese.
