Linguine with Chicken,Roasted Tomatoes and Olives

This is another one of those dishes that was winged with ingredients on hand. 
I had a few ripe tomatoes from the garden that I needed to do something with so I sliced them, drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano and slow roasted.

This is just a basic outline.
The recipe can be adjusted in numerous ways to suit your own taste.
