How to Make It
  1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan set over a medium heat until hot. Add the onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt, sweating for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, plum tomatoes and the sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook gently over a low heat until slightly thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5. Cook the farfalle in a large saucepan of salted, boiling water for 8-10 minutes until 'al dente'.
  4. Drain well and add to the sauce, stirring to coat. Spoon into a large baking dish and top with the sliced chicken and mozzarella.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is golden and bubbling.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for 5 minutes, before serving with a garnish of the herbs on top.
