How to Make Chicken alfredo
less than 30 mins
10 to 30 mins
- 400g/14oz chestnut mushrooms
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 4 banana shallots
- 100g/3½oz pancetta
- 2 garlic
- 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 100ml/3½fl oz chicken stock
- 150g/5½oz crème fraîche
- 300g/10½oz fettucine or tagliatelle
- 1 unwaxed lemon
- small handful fresh tarragon
Put half the mushrooms in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Thickly slice the remaining mushrooms.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and gently fry the shallots and pancetta for 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and all the mushrooms and stir-fry for another 2–3 minutes.
Turn up the heat and add the chicken. Fry on a medium–high heat for 5–6 minutes, or until the chicken is almost cooked through.
Add the mustard, then stir in the stock. Simmer and reduce for 1–2 minutes, then stir in the crème fraîche. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has reduced.
Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the pasta and cook according to the pack instructions, then drain.
Taste and season the sauce, then stir in the lemon zest and juice and tarragon.
Stir the drained pasta into the sauce. Season, garnish with extra chopped tarragon (if using) and serve immediately.
