chicken herb pasta

This is my default pasta recipe as I always seem to have the ingredients at home

For this recipe you will need

  • bavette or linguine pasta
  • big bunch of finely chopped basil
  • big bunch of italian parsley
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chile flakes
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese
  • a generous glug of 'Colonna' olive oil with lemon, but any good olive oil will be good
  • lots of maldon salt and black cracked pepper
  • 2 chicken breasts or thighs, pan fried and sliced finely, which I usually chuck on top of the pasta at the end

Cook your pasta and add it to the fry pan that you cooked the chicken in.  ( deglaze the pan with a little of white wine just after you have cooked the chicken first).  Add all the remaining ingredients toss until all combined.  Top off with further parmesan cheese and olive oil if you desire.
