1 chicken, cut into portions
salt and pepper
oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 onion, finely chopped
3 ml (generous½t) mixed spice
1 chicken stock
cube, dissolved in 375 ml (1½ c) boiling water
1 can (62 g) tomato paste

Method
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a little oil in a pot and fry the chicken until browned all over. Remove from the pot. Stir-fry the garlic and chopped onion in the same pot until soft. Stir in the mixed spice. Return the browned chicken to the pot. Mix the chicken stock and tomato paste and pour over the chicken.

Mix the chicken with the cooked spaghetti so it warms through and serve.
