Chicken Spaghetti Recipe
This was a serving for 4 so I was lucky enough to have leftovers the next day which naturally if you have been following me you will know that I love to eat dinner for breakfast if and when possible. Except that this time I used the leftover chicken in wonderful salad for lunch! There was nothing much else left besides a bit of chicken and olives really but it still made the perfect salad served with my popular balsamic dressing 🙂
This pasta recipe is quick and easy to make, tastes amazing and is done in 20 minutes making it a family favorite.
If you prefer more liquid in your dish just add the wine at the end and remove it earlier from the heat.
If you don’t like wine (why?) use homemade stock or water.
Serve with ground black pepper, fresh herbs and some shaved parmigiana.
