COOK'S NOTES FOR CHICKEN TAGLIATELLE

Outside of Italy tagliatelle is much less popular compared to the ubiquitous spaghetti. Both are made from the same pasta mixture it's just the shape which is different. There is no definitive definition of the shape of tagliatelle but a with of 8mm and a thickness of 1mm is generally considered to be best.

The real reason for using tagliatelle compared to spaghetti is that the broader and thinner shape of tagliatelle allows it to absorb more of the accompanying sauce's flavour.  It's also easier to spoon or fork up an equal mix of pasta and sauce when the pasta is flat.

Even in British supermarkets you can now buy different types of tagliatelle, the flavourings often give the pasta different colourings, green being the most common. For the chicken stock we used the ready made ones which are also now found in most supermarkets. Even the good quality ones are reasonably priced and they do taste better.

If you are using leftover cooked chicken for this recipe, don't fry the chicken in the first step (just fry the bacon), instead add the cooked chicken at the same time as you add the cream.

STEP 2

Heat the oil in large frying pan over medium heat and fry the bacon and the chicken slices (see cook's notes above if using cooked chicken) for a few minutes until the chicken slices are sealed.
Add the mushroom, the onion and oregano and mix well together.
Cook for around eight minutes or until soft.
Add the garlic, chicken stock and simmer (barely boiling) for about ten minutes.
 Cooking the chicken tagliatelle

While the meat is cooking, put a pan with plenty of water on to boil. Add the tagliatelle and lightly boil for about ten minutes (see the instructions on the pack).

Grate the Parmesan cheese.

When the chicken stock has finished cooking lower the heat slightly and pour in the double cream. Stir it in well gently simmering for five minutes. Don't allow it to boil.

Taste the sauce and add salt and pepper to taste.

 

STEP 3

Drain the pasta in a colander and mix it into the chicken sauce.

Serve the chicken tagliatelle onto warmed plates and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Accompany it with some garlic bread for a truly authentic Italian meal.
