Linguine(ContainsCereals containing gluten)
Diced Chicken Breast
Grated Hard Italian Style Cheese(ContainsMilk, Egg)
Water for the Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the linguine. Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
When boiling, add the linguine to the water and bring back to the boil. Cook until tender, 12 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and pop back in the pan. Drizzle with oil and stir through to stop it sticking together.
While the pasta cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 8-10 mins. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a bowl. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw chicken and its packaging. The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Pop the (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat. Add the bacon lardons. Stir-fry until golden, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook lardons thoroughly. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Pour in the double cream and water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount). Add the cooked chicken and bring to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, 3-4 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Stir the cooked pasta, peas, hard Italian style cheese and butter (see ingredients for amount) into the sauce until combined and the peas are piping hot, 1-2 mins.
