Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Pasta


Chicken, Smoked Bacon & Tomato Pasta

I'm always looking for recipes that use up leftover roast chicken from Sunday. Risotto's, pies and cobblers are always a good bet but this pasta dish is a firm favourite in this house.

The smoked paprika and streaky bacon give it a lovely robust flavour and it only takes about half an hour to make - perfect for busy Monday's. In fact if I'm being super organised I make the sauce on Sunday evening, then all I need to do is cook some pasta when we get in from swimming lessons.

If you didn't have bacon, chorizo would work well and I sometimes add in more veggies like courgettes and spinach for extra goodness. It's a great base recipe for you to add what you have in the fridge.

What do you do with your leftover roast chicken?

  1. Nice recipe. I like the bacon and great flavors from paprika and chillies. For leftover chicken, I like to stir fry them with lots of onion, season with dark soya sauce and sugar. Serve it with rice or noodles. I learn this from my mother, it's yummy. :)
