Creamy Pesto Chicken pasta

First off I'm going to say this isn't a cheap mummy recipe, my OH hates aldi and to be honest we rarely go out anymore so food is our luxury. Over the next few months I intend to give you some of our recipes which taste great and are easy to make.


2 large chicken breasts
2 medium onions 
2/3 of a 190g (about 130g if you like to measure) jar of Pesto 
1 teaspoon full of a spice paste (I've used everything from red curry paste to green curry paste) 
Handful of sweetcorn 
250ml of double cream 
A splash of full fat milk 


  1. Dice the chicken into 1cm cubes 
  2. Add to a pan (coated in 1cal spray if you prefer) and fry until white 
  3. Whilst the chicken is cooking chop the onions 
  4. Once the chicken is white added the onions to the pan and cook until soft 
  5. Stir in the pesto and heat for around 1 minute 
  6. Set the pasta to boil
  7. Add the double cream 
  8. Add a splash of full fat milk 
  9. Heat until the sauce thickens 
  10. Serve with pasta and garlic break 
  11. Enjoy!!!
