You will need:
Fry light cooking spray
Seasonings; I always use Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Paprika, and Chilli Powder. Paprika goes amazingly well in this recipe so don't hold back with paprika on the chicken as it will be so flavoursome!
If you can make sure you marinate your chicken overnight for this recipe as this will help to really lock in more flavour on the meat!
100g parmesan cheese
1kg of chicken breast chopped into cubes
100-150g Pasta, if you are cooking for your family then you may want to double up the chicken and pasta amount so you have plenty left over for a few meal prep meals!
1 red onion washed & chopped or you can cut into slices
1 whole pack of mushrooms chopped & washed
x1 Garlic Bread Baguette or Flatbread (this is optional but it tastes great when you dip it into the sauce!)
Large Cooking Dish
Your fave green veggies to add to the dish when serving
Step 1- Take your chicken out of the fridge, sometimes to prevent the chicken being too cold you may want to let it sit out of the fridge for an hour before cooking, but I just whack it straight into the ninja from the fridge.
Step 2- Spray your fry light and put in the ninja on air fry setting for 7 mins and then flip the chicken over and cook for another 7 mins. If you don't have a ninja then heat your cooking dish with fry light and cook the chicken until it is browned. If you can air fry your chicken this will stop it from drying out and keep it juicy & succulent.
Step 3- Once your chicken is on the go you can heat your cooking dish and start cooking the onion and mushrooms. If you aren't using a ninja always add the onions and mushrooms once you have browned the chicken. They will only need 5-7 mins on a medium heat, make sure you keep an eye on it as otherwise it may burn.
Step 4- Once you have done this, check on your chicken and it should be done. Then you are going to add your chicken to the mixture. If you aren't using your ninja your chicken will be in the dish still..
Step 5- Give it all a good stir and then you are going to add in your double cream. Now, this is the tricky part, once you've added the double cream try to keep on a medium heat and you are looking for little bubbles round the edge which will start boiling the cream. Let it do this and continue to do this for at least 5-7 mins. Once it really starts to bubble throughout the whole dish give it a good stir and turn down the heat a little. (I've added a pic so you can see the process, Picture 5)
Step 6- From here add in the parmesan cheese and stir. From here I just leave the ingredients to simmer and lock in flavour. I always leave it for 15-20 mins so that it stays warm for when you are ready to eat. While you have the mixture on a simmer pop on your pan and spaghetti this will need about 10-12 mins and you are also going to turn on the oven and follow the instructions to do your garlic bread if you are making some. Go back to your cooking dish and add a very good handful of parsley leaves! Stir in and leave for a few more minutes!
Step 7- To plate up add your favourite green veggies, and then you can weigh out your total mix to 300g or you can weigh out 100-125g pasta and then 100-150g of the mixture! Cut a nice little 1/4 slice of your garlic bread and enjoy!!!!
