Marinara Pasta with Grilled Chicken

This recipe couldn't be easier! I didn't have to get anything from the store, I had all the ingredients on hand. Perfect for a busy weeknight dinner!
Double the recipe if making for more than 3 people.
Marinara Pasta with Grilled Chicken

2-3 chicken breasts (one per person)
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 T. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 t. dried parsley
1/8 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. brown sugar
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
Your favorite GF noodles
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese

Flatten chicken to 1/2 in. thickness, place in a resealable bag. Add salad dressing. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the tomatoes, parsley, oregano, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Meanwhile, drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken over medium heat for 4-6 minutes per side or until no longer pink. Cut into strips if desired.

Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Stir in parmesan cheese into sauce. Drain spaghetti. Serve with chicken and sauce; sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
