If you're looking for a quick, easy, and delicious meal you can prepare for your family and friends, go no further than this creamy chicken pasta.

To make creamy chicken pasta you will need the following ingredients;

2 chicken breasts

500 grams pasta

1 cup heavy cooking cream

2 tablespoons olive oil/any preferred cooking oil

1 large red onion

1 bell pepper

2 cloves of garlic


Black pepper



Salt to taste



Cut the chicken breasts into small portions and season them with black pepper, turmeric, salt and paprika, set them aside.

In a saucepan add water, oil and some salt to taste then bring it to a boil. After the water has boiled add your pasta and stir well. Cover your pan and let them cook.

In a large skillet add your chopped onions to your cooking oil and cook them till them golden brown, add in your minced garlic and ginger paste.

To the mixture add your cooking cream and reduce the heat while bringing the mixture to a boil. Add your chopped parsley and the pasta, mix well and finally add the pasta water.
