This simple dish can be jazzed up by adding more ingredients. For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken with mushrooms.

  • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 320-400g pasta spirals
  • 300g low-fat creme fraiche
  • 4-7 garlic cloves
  • 1 red chilli
  • 50g frozen peas
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 knob of butter or frying spread
  • salt and white pepper


    1. Cut the chicken into bitesize pieces and shallow fry in the butter, preferably in a pan with high sides so the pasta can be added later.
    2. Boil the water for the pasta and then cook according to instructions.
    3. Once the chicken has cooked through, add the other ingredients, leaving the garlic until last to keep in the flavour.
    4. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the chicken. If there isn't enough room, add the chicken to the pasta instead.
    5. Stir in the creme fraiche. Season to taste.
