Recipe by English_Rose

Sweetcorn, chicken and spicy sauce make a great combination. This simple bolognese is ready to serve in the time it takes the pasta cook. Why not add 2 - 3 slices of chopped smoked bacon in with the chicken for extra flavour. Or add some chili flakes or chopped fresh chili pepper to make it spicy.
