Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 skinned chicken breasts about 600g – 700g worth, cubed
  • 1 small onion thinly sliced
  • 150 g baby button mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 chopped ripe vine tomatoes
  • 80 g frozen sweetcorn
  • 80 g frozen peas
  • 250 g dried tagliatelle
  • 200 ml low fat crème fraiche
  • 30 g grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley for garnishing

Instructions

  • Boil a kettle of water.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the cubed chicken breasts and gently cook, stirring for about 6 – 8 minutes. Once cooked through, remove from pan and set aside.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in the pan and sauté the onion, mushrooms and garlic until soft for about 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook until soft for a further 3 – 4 minutes.
  • Add the sweetcorn and peas mix thoroughly together and cook for about 1 minute.
  • Add your pasta to a suitable sized saucepan, pour over the boiled water, bring to the boil and allow it to simmer whilst you finish the rest of the chicken part.
  • Stir the crème fraiche into the vegetables and when it starts to bubble, add the chicken back, stir in the grated parmesan and a little of the chopped parsley. Allow to simmer gently for 8 – 10 minutes, stirring occasionally whilst the pasta cooks.
  • Once the pasta is al dente, drain and divide amongst 4 serving bowls, top each equally with the crème fraiche chicken mixture.
  • Serve garnished with a little more chopped parsley and grated parmesan if required.
