One order, two meals—no sweat! With our Dinner + Lunch recipes, you’ve got supper covered plus a whole new dish for your midday meal the next day made from the same set of ingredients. Radiatore pasta is ready for a hot night, when you toss it with chunks of tender off-the-barbecue chicken. Throw in fresh tomato and a splash of vinegar for freshness, leafy greens for more veg, and add buttered pesto to make it melt in your mouth. Come lunch, load chicken, bocconcini and tomato on garlic focaccia buns for a trip to Capri. ***Lunch cooking time: 10 min.

Preparation

Mise en place
Heat the BBQ on high, making sure to oil the grill first. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Small-dice 1 tomato (double for 4 dinner/lunch portions). Mince the garlic. In a small bowl, microwave 4 tbsp butter (double for 4 dinner/lunch portions) and the garlic, in 10 sec. increments, until softened, but not melted. Add the pesto and a pinch of the spices; stir well. Set the remaining tomato and ½ the pesto butter aside in the fridge.

Grill the chicken
Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ⅔ of the remaining spices and S&P. Grill on the BBQ (or in a grill pan heated with a drizzle of oil on medium-high, partially covered), 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. Cut ½ the chicken into bite-size pieces. Set the remaining chicken aside in the fridge.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 6 to 8 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 dinner portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Reserve the pot.

Dinner: Combine the pasta & serve
In the same pot, heat the pesto butter on medium-high. Add the pasta, diced tomato, chopped chicken, ½ the vinegar, ½ the spinach, ½ the reserved cooking water, the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until the spinach has wilted and the pasta is coated. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency. Set the remaining spinach and vinegar aside in the fridge. Divide the pasta between your bowls. Bon appétit!
