Method

  1. Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions. Three minutes before the pasta is cooked, throw the broccoli into the pasta water and continue to boil.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, gently heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Tip in the chicken and fry, stirring occasionally, until the chicken pieces are cooked and golden, about 8-10 minutes, adding the garlic for the last 2 minutes.
  3. Mix the mustard with the orange juice in a small bowl. Pour the mixture over the chicken, and gently simmer for a minute or two. Drain the pasta and broccoli, reserving 3 tablespoons of the pasta water. Toss the pasta and broccoli with the chicken, stir in the pasta water and the almonds, season well and serve.

So easy to make and very tasty. for a cold lunch my son added creamy colwslaw and mixed that in to make moist, that added to the fat content but still very tasty

I love this dish - easy, fresh and tasty. It's one I make often - when I don't really feel like cooking something at all - but still have to make dinner ;-)
