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