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.

    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 4 for draining instructions).

  • 2.

    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. 

  • 3.

    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. 

  • 4.

    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. 

  • 5.


    Serve the pasta sprinkled with spring onions and parmesan cheese (if having).
