Simple Creamy Chicken

Easy Creamy Chicken & Pasta

I’m on a quest at the moment.  I’m looking for easy, like really EASY, recipes so I pop them up my sleeve to use when I need them…which is quite often.  This recipe has only 4 main ingredients, is ready in under 15 mintues, and was a hit with my family. I realsie it’s not the lightest of meals, but it’s simple, I know what went into it, and to me, that is a priority.


2 tablespoons Olive Oil

700 grams – 1kg Chicken thigh

300-500 ml cream (I used reduced fat)

2 tablespoons of wholegrain (or dijon) mustard

Vegatables of choice (I used red capcium & asparagus)

Salt & Pepper to taste

Serve with Pasta

How to

    Know how you feel about easy dinners! Last year I went on an “easy dinner spree” too, and I will definitely try this one.
    Here is one of my favourites that I picked up from a Coles brochure:

    Jar of Basil Pesto
    1. Cook pasta (I usually do spaghetti).
    2. Brown chicken.
    3. Add cream and pesto to chicken.
    4. Toss pasta with cream/chicken/pesto mixture and eat!

    You could always add veges if you want or replace the cream with a lower fat option I suppose, but with 6 kids, sometimes I just care about being able to cook something really quickly and really cheaply.
