While your sauce is cooking, you should be simultaneously grilling your chicken breasts and cooking your spaghetti.  Depending on you comfort in the kitchen, you may want to grill the chicken and make the pasta ahead of time.

For Chef D's presentation he put the pasta on the plate first.  He then poured a generous serving of cream sauce on top and finally topped the plate with sliced chicken.   Delicious!
