One of the easiest things you can do with chicken breasts is to create a nice bowl of chicken pasta. This chicken pappardelle from Slimming World is one of our favourites but we’ve got lots more chicken pasta recipes here for you to choose from.
Low calorie cooking spray
1 red onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
1 carrot, peeled and finely diced
2 celery sticks, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
4 skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into 2cm pieces
100ml chicken stock
400g plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
4 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
350g dried pappardelle
150g rocket leaves, roughly chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Spray a saucepan with low calorie cooking spray. Add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic and stir-fry gently for 2-3 minutes.
Add the chicken and stir-fry over a medium-high heat until lightly coloured. Reduce the heat slightly and stir in the stock and tomatoes.
Cover the saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until the tomatoes have become very soft and the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the parsley.
Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the packet instructions until tender al dente (tender but still retaining a bite). Drain well and transfer to a serving bowl.
Stir the rocket into the sauce and season to taste.
Spoon the sauce over the pasta and toss gently to combine thoroughly and serve immediately.
