Zucchini pasta with chicken and bacon – Leftover bits and bobs

I often have some leftover bits and bobs in the fridge, this time I had 3 chicken thighs, a very old courgette/zucchini and finally my basil plant came back to life after playing sudden death so yet again I have mounds of basil.thumb_IMG_1023_1024

Zucchini pasta with chicken and bacon (serves 2)

  • 1 zucchini – Spirlize the zucchini
  • Boil some water
  • 3 chicken thighs – season lightly and cook ( I cooked them in a frying pan with some oil to give them some colour and them put them in the oven whilst I did the rest of the meal).
  • 140 grams of bacon – fry to a crisp in bits
  • 1 dl frozen peas

Add the frozen peas to the boiling water and add the zucchini after 1 min and then boil the two for a further minute.

Walnut pesto

Mix the zucchini, peas, chicken and pesto. Sprinkle with bacon.  A very satisfying meal that feels decadent.
