Creamy Chicken & Bacon Pasta Recipe
– Serves 2 –
25 g butter
25g plain flour
3 rashers of bacon, cooked
100g cooked chicken
150g dried spaghetti
100g mushrooms, finely sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
Toss the mushrooms in the olive oil and place into a hot oven (200ºC/Gas 6) until crispy. This normally takes around 15 minutes.
Cook pasta according to pack instructions.
In a medium pan melt the butter and stir in the flour. Cook out the flour for a minute or so.
Gradually add the milk a little a time, whisking contionously, until it’s been absorbed by the butter and flour mixture. Take care while doing this to avoid the sauce becoming too lumpy.
Once the sauce is at the desired thickness take off the heat and stir in the bacon and chicken. Place back on the heat to heat through the bacon and chicken until piping hot.
Add in the cooked pasta. You may need a little pasta water to stop the sauce from becoming too thick.
Season and serve with the crispy mushrooms.
