Leftover Chicken With Bacon, Peas and Cream


Leftover Chicken With Bacon, Peas and CreamThis is a wonderful dish that uses leftover chicken and turns it into a wonderfully tasty pasta dish.

2-3 Thick Rashers of Streaky Bacon Cut Into small Dice
1 Onion, Chopped
1 Garlic Clove, Chopped
100-200g Fresh or Frozen Peas
Leftover Chicken, Chopped Small
A Few Tablespoons of Double Cream
Olive Oil
Salt and Black Pepper
Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese to Serve


In a heavy based frying pan, fry the bacon in a little olive oil until just crisp. Turn down the heat, add the onion and garlic and sweat until soft but not coloured. Add the peas and a splash of water and allow to bubble for a couple of minutes. When the pan is almost dry again, add the chicken and heat through. Pour in the cream and season well with salt and pepper

Let it bubble until the cream has reduced a little and the sauce has a nice coating consistency. Serve with pasta and parmesan cheese.
