Ingredients

  • 250 g pasta
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • salt
  • pepper

Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 2 cups fresh cream
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • salt
  • pepper
  • fresh parsley to garnish

Instructions

  • Marinate the chicken with the spices and set aside.
  • Boil pasta in salted water until al dente. Once cooked reserve about a cup of the pasta water.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the chicken breasts, about 2&1/2 to 3 minutes per side. Cover with foil and set aside.
  • To make the sauce add the butter to a pan, on medium heat. Once melted add the minced garlic and fry for one minute or just until the raw smell disappears. Don’t let it burn.
  • Add the Italian herbs and oregano.
  • Add the fresh cream and Parmesan and allow the sauce to thicken a little. Takes a couple of minutes.
  • Add some chopped parsley
  • Mix in the pasta. Serve the pasta with a piece of chicken on top or mix it in if you prefer.

Notes

  1. You can use half cream and half milk for this recipe
  2. If you want more heat you can add more chilli flakes to the chicken
  3. The chicken can be omitted if you want a vegetarian dish
