Pasta:2 cups(I used whole wheat pasta)

Red and yellow bell peppers:one of each ,cut longitudinally
Onion:1,medium,finely sliced longitudinally
Garlic:7-8 medium cloves,finely minced
Olive oil:4-5 tbsp

For grilled chicken:
Chicken,boneless strips:2 cups

For the pasta sauce:
Refined flour:3 tbsp

Milk:1.5 cups
Fresh cream 2 tbsp

Marinate the chicken strips with the ingredients mentioned above for grilled chicken at least for 1 hour.
Meanwhile boil the pasta in water with few pinches of salt for 8-10 minutes and drain the water.
Preheat the microwave oven to 180°C and grill the chicken for 10 minutes,then turn into other side and grill for 5 minutes.
Heat 2-3 tbsp of olive oil,temper with minced garlic. 
Add onion and bell pepper slices when garlic becomes golden yellow.
Add few pinches of salt and saute the veggies till they become crispy.
Remove them from the pan and add 1 tbsp Olive oil. Saute the boiled pasta for 2-3 min and remove from pan.

Mix all the pasta-sauce ingredients in a bowl except the butter.
Heat the butter in a separate pan. Add the mix into it, stir continuously to avoid lump formation.
Remove it from the flame when it starts boiling.

Take a seperate pan and heat 1 tbsp Olive oil. 
Toss the pasta with veggies and grilled chicken strips for 2-3 min.
Add the pasta-sauce, mix it well and cook for another 2-3 min.
Sprinkle the grated cheese and serve hot.
