A knob of butter

400g skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thick strips

3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped

150g baby spinach leaves

250ml single cream

A generous pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Frying pan

30 mins
Serves 4

I love recipes that come with a dash of nostalgia and this one never fails to deliver. In what now feels like another life, I was in a band with my Swedish pal Jonathan and, while staying at his place, I picked up this great recipe from his ‘Mamma’, Kerstin. She really knows how to feed a crowd and this recipe is absolutely delicious.

Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet. Heat the butter in a large frying pan and, when foaming, fry the chicken for about 4–6 minutes or until cooked through. Add the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach and fry until the spinach has wilted.
Add the cream and bring to steady simmer for 3–4 minutes. Once the pasta is cooked drain and add to the sauce. Toss well and serve straightaway.

    If you’ve ever seen “Julie & Julia” my life is starting to look scaringly much like that. I don’t think there’s a recipe I haven’t made that you told me about. This was delicious as always and no, I don’t have the pop band look but I can imagine how the touring was (with this food). And btw, tell my best to that hot Swedish GF of yours. (And dont worry, I like guys and already have one so…) :)
