Creamy courgette chicken

I learnt the original version of this recipe from a friend. It has been cooked in my kitchen several times since - despite my elder girl not liking the courgette, but I keep trying... 
A veru quick and simple recipe, but great flavours!
2-3 tbsp olive oil
400g chicken breast fillet, cubed
3 courgettes
2 garlic cloves
1 heaped tsp dill
1/2 tsp lovage
1 good pinch powdered rosmary
1 heaped tsp parsley
salt, pepper
1/2 tub soured cream
2 tbsp flour
250 ml cream
500g pasta, cooked to packet instructions
 Cut the courgettes into quarters then slice them.
 Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken until starts to brown. Add the crushed garlic cloves and cook, stirring, for a minute.
 Add the courgettes and all the spices.
 In a bowl mix the soured cream, flour and cream.
 Stir the mixture into the chicken and courgettte and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then take of the heat.
