This Thermomix BBQ Chicken Pasta is a hit with everyone in our house!
This recipe combines three of my boys favourite things: chicken, pasta and BBQ sauce, so it's easy to see why it's a winner! Personally this recipe reminds me of a BBQ Chicken Pizza with pasta thrown in (yum!) and thanks to the Thermomix, it's a quick and delicious weeknight dinner.
To give the chicken a little extra flavour, I like to cook it in a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil, however you can also bake it if your prefer or even use leftover chicken. This recipe makes enough to feed two adults and two kids with leftovers for the next door - or freezer!
