Louisiana Linguine4.5/5 (BASED ON 2793 reviews)
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
Marinate the chicken
Put the chicken in a bowl with the SOUTHERN SPICE MIX and toss to coat.
Cook the pasta as per pack instructions. (See Step 5 for draining instructions).
Cook the chicken & veg
Heat a little oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and fry the chicken (in batches, see tip). Let them cook on each side until golden brown, then remove and put aside in a bowl.
Add a little more oil and fry the onion and green pepper for 5 mins to lightly brown them.
Add the tomatoes and fry for 2 mins then tip all of the veg into the bowl with the chicken.
Create the sauce
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 crème fraîche and let it cook gently for 2 mins to thicken slightly.
Return the chicken, veg and all the juices back to the pan and stir well and cook for 2 mins.
Mix in the pasta
Collect 2-3 tbsps of cooking water from the pasta using a mug, then drain the pasta and add it, along with the reserved cooking water, to the chicken and toss to coat.
Serve the pasta sprinkled with spring onions and parmesan cheese (if having).

I loved the flavour of this dish but will probably try with spaghetti as I’m not keen on linguine
Emma - Feb 12, 2019
This is soooooo yummy!!
James - Feb 12, 2019
A very nice dish. Works well if you use chicken AND prawns. Also, the so-called "holy trinity" of Creole cookery is green peppers, onion and celery, so we chopped up a stick of celery and added it with the onion and pepper - and it worked very well.

Amazing this is one of my favs x
Leah - Feb 11, 2019

David - Feb 09, 2019
Needs more than 3 pieces of chicken.
Rachael - Feb 09, 2019
A lovely dish. It made boring old pasta exciting. I used Greek yoghurt rather cream/creme fraiche and it worked well. I would reorder this one.

It was ok, nothing special
Natalie - Feb 06, 2019
Chicken thighs didn’t seem the best choice for this dish.
Keshia - Feb 04, 2019
As a vegi we replaced the chicken with avocado. We seasoned the avocado with the seasoning provided and 'chargrilled' on a pan, little oil and turning throughout. Was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be ordering again. Thank you Simply Cook!
