This is a real favourite with my family and an easy one pot dish. Its quick and nourishing at the same time.
350 grams of chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
4 tablespoons of butter (you can also use oil, but butter gives it a fantastic taste)
2 tablespoons of plain flour White or whole
1 cup of skimmed milk
4 cups of cooked pasta of your choice
2 cups of mixed vegetables such as mushrooms, celery, leeks, carrots etc) I didnot use carrots
Salt and pepper to taste
1 vegetable stock cube, optional
Heat the butter in a pan and take care not to burn it. Add the chicken pieces taking care they do not overlap each other and Brown on both sides after sprinkling with salt and pepper. Keep aside and in the same pan add the vegetables and sautee till cooked and still crunchy. Keep aside. In the same pan add the flour and sautee for half a minute and then slowly add the mik in it taking care the mixture is not lumpy. You need to keep on stirring non stop, add the stock, cube and stir. Once the sauce has thickened add the chicken and vegetables to it. Bring to a boil. If too thick you can add some more milk. Serve with the pasta seperately or mix the pasta into the sauce.
NITU DIDI TIP:
For lactose intolerant please use soya milk or chicken stock.
Vegetarians can omit the chicken.
To spicen it up you can use siriracha sauce and chilli flakes.
