Red chicken pasta

I didn't like the combination of chicken and pasta before, but when I went to New York and to this amazing restaurant in Little Italy I fell in love with it. This is my own little spin-off of that dish. Takes about 15 minutes to make. 

What you need: 
One chicken breast 
a red onion
Half of a red bell pepper
lemon juice
1dl tomato sauce
olive oil

How you make it: 
Step1: If your chicken is frozen start by defrosting it in a microwave for about four minutes. 
Step2: Start searing your chicken in a pan in some olive oil.
Step3: Bring your water to a boil and start cooking your pasta. 
Step4: Cut your bell pepper and red onion into tiny pieces.
Step5: When your chicken is done set it aside on a plate (you can put a bowl on top of it so that it stays warm). 
Step6: In the same pan add some more olive oil and the bell peppers after about a minute the chopped up onion. 
Step7: After about 3 minutes add the tomato juice, a few drops of tabasco, a few drops of lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. 
Step8: When your pasta is done add it to the sauce. Stir it around a bit so that you get the sauce spread out evenly throughout the pasta and then put it on a plate. Slice your chicken breast and place it on top. 
If you have some sauce left you can put that on top and finish of with some fresh thyme.
