Chicken Tagliatelle

Thank you for clicking the link to my blog!

It always starts as a craving, I wanted to try something different with pasta as I usually stick to Jollof Spaghetti, so when I purchased Tagliatelle pasta instead of Spaghetti, I decided to pair it with a hint (maybe more) of Sauvignon Blanc.

So here we are, my recipe for Chicken Tagliatelle.

Serves 4

Meal Prep: 10 mins

Cooking Time: 40 mins


  • 350g Bronze Die Pasta Tagliatelle (any brand will do)
  • Half a cup of Sauvignon Blanc Wine
  • A handful of whole leaf baby Spinach
  • 300g Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 150g mushrooms, sliced
  • 150g cherry tomatoes, sliced and diced
  • Half red onion
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp minced garlic-ginger paste
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Dash of Oregano
  • Knorr Chicken Maggi* (optional; it’s the Nigerian in me)



  • Dice the chicken breast fillets and season with half a tsp of salt, 1 Knorr chicken cube* and black pepper.
  • Slice the onions, spring onions, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes as desired.
  • Heat 3 tbsp of olive oil and fry the pre-seasoned chicken cubes for 7 – 10 mins (until chicken is well cooked) on medium heat and set aside.

  • Once the onions are sautéed, add the cherry tomatoes and mushrooms and cook on low heat for 5 – 7 mins.

At this point, I cooked the pasta in a separate pot, according to the cooking instructions on the packet (adding a tsp of olive oil to reduce how much the pasta sticks together, cooking time: 10 – 12 mins)

  • Add the chicken cubes to the pan with a squeeze of the lemon juice (to aid the acidity from the wine), half a cup of Sauvignon Blanc and salt, pepper, oregano, 1 Knorr chicken and simmer on low heat for 5 – 7 mins.

  • Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce, tossing the pasta with spinach and the spring onions until all of the pasta is coated.

To Serve:

You can serve it on its own or with grated Parmesan cheese. I chose to serve with garlic bread.
