Level 🍴


  • 300g cooked chicken, shredded (or cook 2 chicken breasts for 25-30 minutes, allow to rest for 10 minutes then shred/slice)
  • 2 peppers, red, yellow or orange, cut into strips
  • 200ml double cream
  • 75g grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or grated
  • pinch of nutmeg (optional)
  • pinch of salt & pepper
  • chopped fresh parsley to garnish (optional)
  • spaghetti, tagliatelle or linguine to serve

Cook the peppers in a large frying pan with 2 tbsp oil over medium-high heat until soft.

Add the garlic & cook for another 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium & pour in the cream. Once the cream is bubbling slightly add the parmesan & stir. When the cheese has melted add the nutmeg (if using) & season with salt & pepper.

Add the chicken, stir & allow to heat through while you cook the pasta.

Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water. Drain & add to the sauce.

Mix together so that the pasta gets coated with the sauce.

Serve with some chopped parsley if you like.
