Creamy Chicken & Spinach Pasta

April 10

I love recipes that come with a dash of nostalgia and this one never fails to deliver. In what now feels like another life, I was in a band with my Swedish pal Jonathan and, while staying at his place, I picked up this great recipe from his ‘Mamma’, Kerstin. She really knows how to feed a crowd and this recipe is absolutely delicious.

  • serves Serves 4
  • time 30 mins


  1. 1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. Heat the butter in a large frying pan and, when foaming, fry the chicken for about 4–6 minutes or until cooked through. Add the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and fry until the spinach has wilted.
  2. 2. Add the cream and bring to steady simmer for 3–4 minutes. Once the pasta is cooked drain and add to the sauce. Toss well and serve straightaway.
