honey-soy roast chicken pasta

Posted on by

To be honest, this recipe was a fluke. haha. I sorta winged it and threw in what I had in the kitchen. It was one of those days where I felt that, hey, maybe cooking something pretty might make life more cheerful.

And it did. It made me feel a little more accomplished cos some effort was made. But I totally forgot to take a photo of the roast chicken before I used the leftovers for the pasta. ARGH.

But here’s what I did:

4 chicken marylands
brown onion, cut into eighths
1/4 pumpkin, cut into chunks
1/2 punnet of cherry tomatoes
2 sweet potatoes, cut into fries, soaked in water for 15 mins

Basting marinade: well mixed
2 tbsp honey
2 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, convection oven.

2) Coat pumpkin and sweet potato with a light layer of olive oil. Place onions and tomatoes together, with pumpkin and sweet potatoes surrounding it. Place chicken marylands on top of onions and tomatoes.

3) Brush a layer of the marinade on the chicken. Put chicken in oven. Baste chicken with marinade every 15 mins. Should baste it about 3 times after you put chicken in the oven. On the 3rd baste, switch oven to fan forced, and roast for another 15 mins. Leave chicken in oven until ready to serve.

I had 1 maryland leftover, together with some of the roasted veggies. So I made them into a cream based chicken pasta. I saved all the oil/juices from the roast and kept it together with the chicken. I also had some stir fried brocolli with garlic leftover, so I also threw them in together with the chicken in the container

I used:

2 cups of spiral pasta
200ml thickened cream
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
a knob of butter (probably about 20g)
handful of cheese ( 
I used Perfect Italiano’s Perfect Bakes)

1) Cook pasta. Cut brocolli into smaller florets. Peel & shred the chicken off the bone.

2) Melt butter in a pan. Once butter started bubbling/frothing, throw garlic in and stirfry for about 1 min or so. Pour thickened cream in and bring to boil, before simmering.

3) Throw in chicken pieces, roast veggies and brocolli together with the oil/juices. Mix well and make sure it is all thoroughly heated.

4) Turn off the fire, and toss in the cheese and mix well.

It was mad yums and flavourful! All the juices from the roast sweetened the cream and the chicken marylands were still tender. The pumpkin and sweet potato also sweetened the pasta dish.

Two dish in one. Waah..swee. Er, by the way, my ingredients are an estimation of the amount I used, and I am in no way a chef wannabe. But I should think it is close enough to create something palatable enough!
