Ingredients

  • 250g chicken breast diced
  • 4 rashers of streaky bacon chopped
  • 75g button mushrooms sliced
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 1 250ml pot of creme fraiche
  • 2 tbsp of double cream
  • ½ gluten and wheat free chicken stock cube
  • 100g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil/olive oil
  • 250g gluten and wheat free pasta shapes or spaghetti
  • Flat leaf parsley to garnish

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C degrees. Cook the pasta according to instructions. In the meantime, heat the oil in a pan, fry the chicken, bacon, onion, mushrooms and garlic for about 3-5 minutes, until the onion softens and the chicken browns.

Turn down the heat to a simmer and add the creme fraiche, cream, and crumbled chicken stock. Keep the heat low, as if it is too hot, it may curdle. Simmer for 1-2 minutes, making sure the stock cube has mixed in.
