Chicken & Serrano Ham Dairy-free Carbonara

Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 20 mins
Serves: 2-3

Ingredients

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 2 handfuls wholewheat pasta
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped finely
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, sliced
  • 2 free range eggs, beaten
  • 125ml Soya Dream
  • 50g grated dairy-free mozzarella cheese / cheddar
  • 2 slices of good quality serrano ham, chopped
  • Pepper
  • Handful of chopped chives

STEP BY STEP

  1. Boil a saucepan of water (add a little salt if you wish to), add the pasta and cook according to packet instructions.
  2. Whilst the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a large pan and add the garlic until you start to smell it (less than a minute). Add the chicken breasts and heat through for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. In a jug beat the eggs and Soya Dream together.
  4. Add some of the grated dairy-free cheese to the mixture too and season with pepper.
  5. Add the ham then the egg mixture and stir thoroughly to make it smooth.
  6. Don’t have the pan too hot or the eggs might scramble. Cook for 4-5 minutes to ensure the eggs are cooked through.
  7. Add extra dairy-free cheese to taste if you wish.
  8. Add the cooked pasta to the chicken mixture. Make sure the pasta gets thoroughly coated then reheat for a few moments. Serve sprinkled with chives.
TIP: Whole wheat pasta is a better alternative to white pasta, it is a complex carbohydrate and provides you with fibre, protein, and vitamins and minerals.
