For this recipe, we recommend preparing and weighing all ingredients first, especially if you’re not confident in the kitchen. So you can relax during the cooking process and maybe even enjoy a glass of wine! Just make sure you prepare all the vegetables before the meat to avoid any cross contamination. If you’re a confident foodie, please follow ahead and enjoy!
Serves 3 - 4
- 250g wholemeal pasta
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 - 2 onions, diced
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 500g chicken thigh, cubed
- ¼ cup white wine such as sauvignon blanc
- 250g mushrooms, sliced
- 1 tbsp JF Everything seasoning
- 1 tsp seeded mustard
- ½ cup Chobani Greek yoghurt
- 2 spring onions, sliced
Bring a pot of pasta water to the boil with a splash of olive oil and salt. This will provide flavour and prevent the pasta from sticking. Cook pasta according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large pot and sauté onion and garlic. Add chicken and brown the meat. Deglaze the pot with wine, scraping the brown bits from the sides and bottom. This will also provide flavour!
Add mushrooms, Everything seasoning, seeded mustard and mix well. Cover pot and gently simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Check pasta and strain liquid when cooked. Reserve ½ cup of the pasta water and set aside. Once chicken has cooked for 10 minutes, turn off the heat.
Add cooked pasta, spring onions, pasta water, yoghurt, salt and pepper to taste. Serve as is, with a side of veggies, salad or use as meal prep.
TIP: This dish was created with Greek yoghurt instead of the traditional sour cream because Greek yoghurt has lower calories and a higher protein content. This is great for fitness junkies trying to hit their protein macros!
The structure of yoghurt however, is very different to sour cream. So when it comes to cooking with yoghurt, it can split (separate) when exposed to direct heat. But don’t worry if this happens, it usually mixes together again as it cools.
If you love sour cream and want the full fat flavour, go for it! The higher fat content will allow you to cook and thicken the sauce if you prefer.
FOOD PREP TIPS: If you’re time poor, you can opt for buying sliced mushrooms, fresh pasta or pre-cut chicken. I would also suggest using chicken thigh as it provides more flavour and won’t dry out during cooking.
If you prefer breast, cook for half the time to prevent over cooking and drying out the meat. On the plus side of using breast, your meal will be prepared even faster!
