Recipe: Pasta with mustardy chicken sauce


mustqardy chicken pastaThis is a recipe from an old recipe book that I decided to make during last weekends cookfest. Its actually really nice and only 285 calories per serving.

Ingredients

  • 225g dried pasta 9recipe says bows but I guess any would do)
  • 750ml chicken stock
  • 2 medium size chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 leeks, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 tbsp half cream (i actually missed this out and it still tasted yummy)
  • freshly ground salt and pepper

Cook the pasta in the chicken stock. Drain, reserving the stock.

Meanwhile, place the chicken, garlic, leeks and mustard in a saucepan, add 22ml of the chicken stock from the cooking of the pasta and gently simmer uncovered for 5 mins.

stir the cream into the sauce, heat for 2 minutes, uncovered. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the pasta.

I stirred the pasta through the sauce, cooled then refrigerated it and used it for lunches / quick dinners during last week.
