Garlic Chicken Pasta

This pasta recipe is so quick and easy but doesn't lack flavour!

I like to pair this with a side salad and cheesy garlic flatbread, the ultimate comfort food.

Bacon could easy be added for extra flavour and protein, or leave out the meats and bulk up on the vegetables for an easy low calorie vegetarian meal!

Cook until the chicken is cooked all the way through.

For the sauce, combine the salt, pepper, creme fraiche and gg together until fully mixed. There should be no lumps left.

Once the pasta is down cooking, drain but save half a ladleful of the pasta water.

Add the pasta and water to the pan and mix until thoroughly combined.

The heat from the pasta will cook the egg.
