Chicken, Leek and Rosemary Tagliatelli

A quick and simple supper recipe today!  This Chicken, Leek and Rosemary Tagliatelli recipe uses a white wine reduction to make a super simple sauce that is super luxurious!  Sometimes you need to give yourself a little indulgent treat but this is a little bit lighter than my usual cream based sauces.

The freshness of the leeks and the depth of the rosemary pair beautifully with the bacon and chicken to make a perfect Friday supper for two!

Chicken, Leek and Rosemary Tagliatelli

Serves 2

1 large chicken breast, sliced
125g bacon lardons
1 medium leek, rinsed and sliced
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
200ml white wine
tagliatelle to serve

  • Prep your water for pasta, mine usually takes 4-5mins but check the packet for cooking instructions and proceed accordingly.
  • Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan and add the bacon lardons cook for a minute or two, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the sliced chicken breast and cook until just turning all white.
  • Add the leek and cook until just softening.
  • Add the rosemary and the wine and simmer on a medium heat until the wine is reduced to a thick sauce coating the bottom of the pan and the leek is completely soft and the chicken cooked through.
  • Serve over tagliatelle!

Linocut!

Things have been a bit quiet around here recently and that is because of a few things.  I’ve been going through a bit of a rough spot and cooking new and interesting food hasn’t been at the top of my priorities, some days dinner has simply been a yogurt and a couple of oreos!  It’s nothing major, just one of those things, I plough through and eventually my interest in food will reawaken!  I haven’t stopped cooking but I have been focusing my energy on my new hobby: Linocut!

The Mountains Are Calling Linocut Limited Edition Print on Etsy

I stumbled across this technique for making prints by accident.  I think I was on another Pinterest bender!  I ordered myself a basic starter kit and I haven’t looked back!

Autumn Leaves Linocut Print Limited Edition

Its a pretty time intensive medium but so rewarding!  I love the way each and every print is slightly different.  These subtle variations are endlessly fascinating to me and I love the visual texture of this printing technique.  For this ice cream print I deliberately used more ink than normal to give it a feeling of ice cream texture!

So things are going to slow down a bit here on Anna In The Kitchen on the recipe front (don’t worry, the recipes won’t stop entirely!) but there will be some process posts as I’m working on my prints to show how I work and what’s captured my attention.  I hope you enjoy coming with me on this new journey!  I’m selling my prints on Etsy so pop over and have a look!
