  • 1tbs olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 6 spring onions, sliced
  • 1/2 jar Peppadew peppers
  • 250g pasta shapes (I like tricolore fusilli)
  • 2tbs red pesto
  • 3tbs creme fraiche


    1. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions.
    2. Chop the chicken into bite sized chunks and fry in the olive oil for 5 mins - adding the sliced spring onions for the last minute.
    3. Slice the peppadew peppers roughly and add to the the pan.
    4. Add the pesto to the chicken and veg and fry for 5 minutes.
    5. Once cooked, add the pasta to the chicken and add the creme fraiche. Warm through and serve.

Did this with 'real' onions instead and it worked. I think both will be a tasty - and it is very tasty! Also made it with green pesto. it is so easy and so good. Had it as a weekend family meal. Thanks! I'll be making this again!
