- 6Once the skillet is hot, add olive oil and swirl to coat the bottom.
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- 15One by one, holding a sprig of rosemary at its top, run your fingers down it to remove the leaves. Discard the sprigs and chop the fried leaves; transfer to a small bowl.
- 16Place the chicken on a cutting board and cut on the diagonal into strips.
- 17To serve, divide the pasta between dishes, top with the chicken slices, and garnish with the fried rosemary leaves. Enjoy!
