Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Pasta With Asparagus

 250 g Favourite pasta
 1 Chicken breast
 A handful of asparagus
 3 tbsp Sun-dried tomato pesto (or 3 tablespoons of chopped sun-dried tomatoes)
 200 ml Cream
 ½ cup Chicken broth (or water)
 ¼ cup Reserved pasta cooking water
 1 Onion
 3 Garlic cloves
 2 tbsp Chopped fresh parsley
 1 tbsp Butter
 Olive oil
 Salt and pepper
 ¼ tsp Chilli flakes/powder (optional)
 A few cherry tomatoes (optional)

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook for the time written in the instructions MINUS 2 minutes (it will finish cooking in the sauce). Drain reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water.


Meanwhile, cut chicken breast into bite size chunks. Season with salt and pepper, set aside.


Wash and cut asparagus into 1-2cm pieces. Peel and finely chop onion and garlic.


Heat a large pan over medium heat with 1 tablespoon of butter and a little bit of olive oil. It will prevent the butter from burning. Add onion, garlic (and chopped sun-dried tomatoes if using instead of pesto).

Fry for 3 minutes, until translucent. Add a bit more olive oil, add asparagus and chicken. Fry for 4 minutes, stirring often.


Add cherry tomatoes cut in half (if using), cream, chicken broth, reserved water from cooking pasta, and sun-dried tomato pesto. Mix together, season with salt, pepper, and chilli flakes.


Bring to the boil and simmer over medium-low heat for 4 minutes. When the sauce starts to thicken, add pasta and chopped parsley.


Toss together and simmer for 2 minutes more. Do this step until you get the sauce consistency you want. If your sauce gets too thick, add a splash of chicken broth/water.
