A savoury, mildly hot and creamy sauce coats the linguine which is topped with charred chicken marinated in spices often used in the deep south of the USA. A squeeze of lemon lifts all the flavours, ensuring a comforting but exciting plate of food. This is equally good with prawns instead of chicken if you prefer.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Put the chicken in a bowl with the Southern Spice Mix and toss to coat. Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook for 8-10 mins.

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and then add the chicken slices (in batches, see tips). Let them cook on each side until golden brown, then remove them from the pan and put in a large bowl. (If there are any burnt bits stuck to the pan, add a splash of water and scrape the bits off and discard in between batches.)

  • 3.

    Add a little more oil to the pan and stir-fry the onion and the green pepper for 5-6 mins to lightly brown. Add the tomatoes and fry for 2 mins then tip all of the veg into the large bowl with the chicken.

  • 4.

    Add 100ml of water to the pan and use a spoon to loosen all the tasty bits from the bottom of the pan, then add the White Wine Reduction and mix it in. Next stir in the Garlic Chicken Stock. Gently bring it to the boil then reduce the heat to medium. Mix in the double cream and let it bubble gently for about 2 mins to thicken it a bit. Return the chicken, the vegetables and all the juices back to the pan and stir well. Let it simmer for 2-3 mins.

  • 5.

    Collect a 2-3 tbsps of cooking water from the pasta using a mug, then drain the pasta. Add the pasta and the 2-3 tbsps of cooking water to the chicken and vegetables and toss to coat. Serve the pasta in bowls with a squeeze of lemon, some spring onions or a sprinkle of parmesan cheese over it all, if you like.

I thought it was nice with good flavour. Added mushrooms and asparagus and used much less creme fresh and it was still creamy enough.
