• Boil the kettle. • Meanwhile, thinly slice leek. Drain the sweetcorn.
• Half-fill a large saucepan with boiling water, add a generous pinch of salt, then bring to the boil. • Cook orecchiette in boiling water, over high heat, until ‘al dente’, 8 minutes. • Reserve pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people). Drain orecchiette, then return to the saucepan.
• Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook leek and corn, tossing, until softened, 4-5 minutes. • Add pulled chicken and garlic & herb seasoning, breaking up with a spoon, until browned, 2-3 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium, stir in cream (see ingredients), dijon mustard, the salt, reserved pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people) and cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. • Stir through cooked orecchiette and baby spinach leaves until combined. Season to taste.
TIP: Add a splash of water if the pasta looks dry.
• Divide creamy dijon chicken orecchiette between bowls. • Tear over parsley to serve. Enjoy!
Little cooks: Help tear over the parsley.
