Fettuccine with chicken, pesto & potato
Use up your left-over chicken, pesto and potato and make this tasty fettuccine dish.
chicken drumsticks or thighs
or whatever you’ve got – even use the stuffing!
cubed or sliced
(or as much as you like)
Cooked pasta of your choice
Salt & black pepper
Put a large pot of water on to boil, for the pasta.
While that is happening, either make your pesto or open your favourite jar of it.
Heat a skillet over medium-high flame. Toss in the oil, followed by the onions and garlic. Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until soft and opaque.
It may be time to throw the pasta into the boiling water by now, but make sure you add plenty of salt when it boils.
While that’s going, shred the left-over chicken straight into to cooking onion, followed by the roasted left-over potato. Stir for half a minute then turn off the heat.
Drain the pasta, toss it straight onto the onion-chicken mixture, pour the pesto on top of the pasta and stir through.
Taste it for seasoning, then serve.
