Well I had a recipe in front of me to follow from an old cookbook of mine but of course I ended up just winging this. I don’t know why I bother getting the cookbooks out!

It’s delicious. I used a store bought chicken stock concentrate pot as I have run out of veg concentrate. In the recipe I have written veg or chicken stock concentrate. Either would work. The stock used will determine the taste of this dish.

There is quite a bit of yummy liquid in this dish so what I have done is poured most of the chicken and vegetable mix over the pasta and left about a third of the liquid and veg in the bowl (remove all chicken) and blitzed until smooth. I will freeze and use this as a pasta or pizza sauce as its delicious!

You can just serve the whole thing over pasta if you prefer.
