Chicken and Pasta Recipe with Salami and Cherry Tomatoes

This super easy chicken and pasta recipe combines chicken and salami with cherry tomatoes. This simple chicken recipe looks extra yummy if you serve it with farfalle (pasta bows) and a bit of fresh rosemary sprinkled on top creates a good contrast with the red cherry tomatoes. Serve it with a tossed green salad for a healthy balanced meal.
