Cajun chicken pasta bake

Serves 4

Ingredients

300g fusilli pasta

3 skinless chicken breasts

Cajun spice

2 tablespoons oil

80g smoked bacon

3 spring onions

40g butter

40g flour

800ml milk

Salt & Pepper

Grated cheese

Chopped parsley

Method

Cut the chicken into cubes and dust with Cajun spice and drizzle with oil and allow to marinade in the fridge for a few hours.

Meanwhile cook the pasta to ‘al dente’ stage and set aside.

To make the white sauce, in a pot melt the butter and add the flour to create a paste and then add the milk. Whisk this over a low heat until the milk thickens up. Season and set aside.

To assemble the pasta bake, simply sear the chicken on the pan with the bacon and place in a large oven baking dish with the pasta.

Top with the chopped spring onions and pour the white sauce over all of this and mix ingredients.

Top with grated cheese and bake in a preheated oven at 165C for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked fully and the cheese is golden brown. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and its delicious served with a side of garlic bread!
