Under 30: Creamy Chicken and Tarragon Pasta

Welcome to another brand new series; this month we'll be creating various dishes that only take 30 minutes or less to prep and cook. As we are full time workers and gym enthusiasts, we are always looking for quick and easy (mostly healthy) recipes to make! We hope you enjoy this series and do let us know if you create any of them and what you thought!


Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

- 2 tbsp olive oil 
- 300g (10oz) chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces (£2.50)
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 300ml (1/2 pint) half fat crรจme fraรฎche (95p)
- 1 tsp dried tarragon
- 500g (1lb) penne pasta (59p)
- 1 lemon, juiced

Total: £4.04

Instructions:

1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and add in the chicken pieces. Cook over a medium heat for about 3 minutes, stirring a few times.

2. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water, according to pack instructions.

3. Meanwhile, add the garlic, crรจme fraรฎche and tarragon to the chicken and lower the heat. Season well and let the sauce bubble while you cook the pasta.

4. Once the pasta is al dente and the chicken is cooked through, drain the pasta and add it to the sauce, along with a little of the cooking water to loosen it slightly. Finish with a squeeze of lemon juice (to taste).

  1. Oooh this looks wonderful! I need to think of what to substitute for the chicken so I can make this veggie because it looks absolutely delish! I'm a huge tarrgon lover! The consistency of the sauce is exactly how I like it!
