This chicken pasta dish is inspired by the French classic called chicken marengo, but omits the crayfish! You can also serve it over rice.

Serves: 4 

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 chicken breast halves, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 250g mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3/4 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • salt, to taste
  • 450g spiral pasta

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a frying pan. Coat the chicken with the flour and fry 5 minutes a side, or until browned. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add remaining oil to the frying pan and cook the onion and garlic, stirring, about 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add mushrooms and cook five more minutes.
  3. Add the wine, tomatoes, tomato paste and salt and bring to a boil. Return the chicken to the frying pan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, boil the pasta until al dente. Serve the chicken over the pasta.

This was an easy tasty recipe. I used chicken thighs cut into small pieces for my toddlers to easily eat. Was delicious. - 22 Sep 2014
