Philly Chicken and Thyme Penne

This is really good, I’ve made it a good few times and I originally found the recipe the Philadelphia website.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown the chicken on all sides remove from the pan and set aside. Add the onions and bacon to the pan and cook for 3-4 mins then add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
  2. Stir in the stock and Philly, mixing until well combined. Return the chicken to the pan, add the tomatoes, thyme and peas and season. Bring to a simmer for 5 mins and check that the chicken is cooked through.
  3. In the mean time cook the penne according the pack instructions then drain. If you find the sauce is a little thick add spoon or two of pasta water to loosen. Divide the pasta between four bowls and top with the chicken and sauce. Equally as good made with turkey.
