Get Prepped

Preheat your oven to 120°C/100°C fan/gas mark 2.

Cut the Tenderstem® broccoli into thirds. 

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the pasta. 

Bash the Chicken

Sandwich each chicken breast between two pieces of baking paper or cling film. Pop onto a board, then give it a bash with a rolling pin or the bottom of a saucepan until it’s 1-2cm thick.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then lay a Serrano ham slice over the top. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.

Time to Fry

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. 

Once hot, lay in the chicken, ham-side down. Fry until golden brown, 5-6 mins each side. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Once cooked, transfer to a baking tray, cover with foil and pop into the oven to keep warm.

Cook the Pasta and Veg

While the chicken stays warm in the oven, add the tagliatelle and broccoli to your pan of boiling water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 3-4 mins. 

Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.

Make your Creamy Sauce

While the pasta and broccoli cooks, put your (now empty) frying pan back on medium heat with a drizzle of oil. 

Once hot, add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 secs. 

Stir in the creme fraiche, hard Italian style cheese and chicken stock paste. Bring to the boil, then stir in the water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) and simmer until reduced by half, 2-3 mins.

Remove from the heat and taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.   

Finish and Serve

Remove the chicken from your oven and place on a board to rest for a couple of mins.

Add the cooked tagliatelle and broccoli to the creamy sauce, adding a splash of water if it's a little too thick. 

Share the creamy tagliatelle between your bowls. Thinly slice the chicken and serve on top of the pasta.
