Heat a drizzle of oil in a large wide saucepan over high heat. Once hot, add the diced chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until turning golden, 3-4 mins. Fill and boil your kettle.
Meanwhile, trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Quarter lengthways then thinly slice widthways. Add the leek and the sliced mushrooms to the chicken with a knob of butter (if you have some). Cook, stirring, until starting to soften, 2-3 mins.
Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press) then add this to the pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 min.
Pour the boiling water (see ingredients for amount) into the pan. Stir in the chicken stock powder and penne, stir well. Bring to a simmer and season with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and cook, stirring every 2-3 mins, until the penne is tender, 12 mins. Tip: Add a splash of water if it dries out.
While the pasta is cooking, roughly chop the flat leaf parsley (stalks and all!)
Once the pasta is cooked, add the creme fraiche and tarragon (add less if you don't like too much) to it and mix well. Taste and add salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. Divide between bowls and give a good grind of black pepper as the garnish,enjoy!
