Easy pasta … great wine!

If you are looking for a quick and easy midweek dinner packed with flavour, Spier’s got the perfect recipe for you.

This Creamy Smoked Chicken & Chive pasta pairs wonderfully with the new Spier Seaward Chardonnay 2018. The recipe is designed to serve two, but the quantities can be adjusted to your liking to increase the number of portions.

Ingredients: 15 ml olive oil; Small bunch of spring onions, finely sliced (reserve some for serving); 1 garlic clove (finely chopped); 2 medium size smoked chicken breasts (sliced); 250 ml fresh cream; 10 ml wholegrain mustard; Salt & pepper (to taste); Generous handful French chives, chopped (reserve some for serving); About 200 g pasta of your choice, freshly boiled & drained

Method: In a wide pan, heat the oil and fry the spring onions and garlic over medium heat until they are soft and fragrant. Add the chicken and fry for a few minutes until lightly golden, then add the cream and mustard. Stir and bring to a simmer. Cook for two minutes.Season with salt and pepper and stir in half the chives. Add the pasta and toss to coat, then remove from the heat at once. Serve hot, scattered with more spring onions and the rest of the chives. Pair with a glass or two of Spier Seaward Chardonnay 2018, a lightly wooded wine with a creamy palate … think fresh citrus, nectarive and a touch of vanilla. Great with this, as well as pork chops, roast chicken, creamy mushroom pasta – and, of course, seafood. Around R110 a bottle and is available at the Spier wine shop and your local bottlestore.
