Creamy Chicken Pasta

A little bit of Crazy

Last weekend I was feeling a bit adventurous in the kitchen so I decided to make something with what we had in the fridge. I was going to make carbonara but  changed my mind because I wanted something different. I knew I had to use the cream we had because it was about to go off, so I kind of went with it and added a bunch of random stuff. It turned out amazing!

Ingredients

  • two chicken breasts – cut into cubes
  • 250ml cream
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • +/- 10 baby tomatoes halved
  • half a punnet of chopped mushrooms
  • half a green pepper – chopped
  • fresh basil
  • salt and pepper for flavour
  • pasta or grated/ sliced baby marrows. I used a whole punnet of baby marrows.

Here’s what to do to create the magic

  • Fry the diced onion and garlic in oil, (olive or coconut).
  • Add chicken to frying onion mix and brown.
  • Fry mushrooms, green pepper and tomoatos in butter before adding to pan to browned chicken and onions.
  • Add fresh basil, salt and pepper and fry together for a minute or so before adding cream.
  • Cook until cream sauce has reduced.
  • In the meantime cook your pasta or baby marrows before serving.

The next time I make this I want to try it with salmon.

Happy cooking!
