Chicken Pasta recipe.

Hi friends,

So recently I’ve been posting short daily vlogs over on tiktok & surprisingly people seem to enjoy them. (CLICK HERE to check them out)
Because they are daily sometimes I show what we are eating and a heavily featured meal is a regular go to for us, chicken pasta.

I get asked so often for the recipe and I am hesitant to make a video on it, because recipe content isn’t really my thing.
So I thought I would just write it out for you…

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast
  • Diced bacon
  • Onion
  • Zucchini
  • Garlic
  • 250ml cream
  • 500ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup of grated cheese of your choice
  • seasoning
  • pasta

Steps:

  1. If you want to use the diced bacon (sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t…) fry it off first and then set it aside to add on top of the pasta when serving.
  2. Start cooking pasta (cook until nearly done)
  3. Dice onion, mince garlic & grate zucchini – sauté in pan.
  4. Dice chicken – add to pan with vegetables and cook until cooked through. (How much chicken I use depends on how many people I am cooking for, if it’s just the kids and I, I use just one breast and then I add on from there…)
  5. Once chicken is cooked, add in 1 cup/250ml of cream, 2 cups of stock (I use 1 tbsp quirky chicken stock paste & 1 tbsp of vegetable stock paste that I make in the thermomix & I combine that with 2cups of water. If you don’t have this stock paste, just use your preferred type of stock)
  6. Stir until combined and then add in the 1 cup of grated cheese – whatever cheese you prefer. Sometimes I use parmesan, other times the pizza grated cheese in the bag – this meal is fairly forgiving.
  7. Drain the pasta
  8. Add pasta to pan and stir to coat pasta.
  9. Season however you like – I usually add cracked pepper & a sprinkle of vegeta stock powder and sometimes I just forget to.
  10. Continue to cook & stir gently over a medium-high heat until the mix is simmering & pasta is cooked through.
  11. At this point I normally turn the heat off and pop a lid on the pan. I find letting it sit for about 20-30minutes helps the sauce to be absorbed a bit by the pasta & it thickens. If you serve it straight away, it’ll just be a bit more liquidy.
  12. When serving I top with diced bacon (from step 1), but sometimes I don’t…
  13. Enjoy.

So that’s it.
The basic part which you need to know is 1 cup of cream, 2 cups of stock & 1 cup of cheese. That makes the sauce, the rest you can customise however you like.
You could add in whatever veggies you like (mushrooms maybe? I am not a huge fan of cooked mushrooms…)
You could use a shredded BBQ chook from woolies if you are short on time & don’t feel like dicing & cooking chicken breast… It really is a very basic & forgiving recipe.
When I make it we always have leftovers for the next night or the freezer. (It does freeze & reheat well)
Everyone I make this meal for always enjoys it & both my kids love it too.
For me it’s comfort food, I like it and I hope you do too.
Please let me know if you make it & any changes you made to it.
