I tried this out as an experiment once, just adding bits I had left over and it really worked. my family love it, I love it. Its a perfect knock up for a cosy night in, in front of the TV.


  • Season to taste
  • 400g Penne Pasta
  • 2 cloves of garlic- finely choped
  • 50g Red Leicester Cheese- Grated
  • 100ml Double Cream
  • 50g Mature Chedder Cheese-Grated
  • Diced Chicken


  • STEP 1
    Put the pasta on to boil: Part cook the chicken in a pan or microwave (microwave locks in all the juices and keeps it moist)
  • STEP 2
    Put the cream and cheese in a pan over a low heat and stir till cheese has melted. Add the garlic and seasoning. Sprinkle some mixed herbs in and stir
  • STEP 3
    Add the chicken to the mix and allow the mixture to simmer until the pasta is cooked. Drain the pasta in a colander.
  • STEP 4
    Mix in the chicken and sauce together for a creamy delight and serve. Or pre-heat the oven to 120c Fan, place the pasta mix in to a ovenproof dish, grate some cheese over the top and bake in the oven for 15-20 mins for a cheesier stickier finish.
