Chicken & Broad Bean Penne
Recipe type: Pasta
Serves: 4
  • 1-2 chicken breasts, grilled and shredded
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 500g penne (Harvest Hub)
  • Handful broad beans
  • 3 tbs Tomato passata
  • 1 lemon, juice
  • 6 tbs parmesan, finely grated
  • Dill, crushed and sprinkled
  1. Coat chicken in oil, season then grill for 6 minutes each side. Then shred.
  2. In a saucepan boil the pasta adding in the pre-cooked beans for the final 2 mins, then drain, reserving 150ml of the cooking water.
  3. The fresh beans this week are hidden inside large green pods. These are young so no need to peel beans. First open the pods and extract the beans. (Usually you need to peel them).
  4. Shred the cooked chicken and put back into the frypan with the tomato passata, lemon juice, 3 tbs Parmesan and the reserved cooking water. Heat gently, season to taste. Turn off heat and stir in penne. Serve sprinkled with the remaining crushed Dill and serve.
