DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a large saucepan with water. Add the chicken, sliced onion, parsley, salt and pepper.

Remove the chicken and when cool enough to handle, remove all flesh from the bones. Set to one side. Drain and reserve the stock that the chicken has been cooking in to make the sauce.
  • While the chicken is cooking, cook the tagliatelle to packet instructions, drain and place is large, shallow baking dish. Turn on oven - moderate heat.
  • For the mushroom mixture, cook the diced onion in the oil, after about 4 mins add the garlic, mushrooms and capsicum. Cook for a further 3 minutes, then add the garlic and pepper. Cook for a further minute. Remove from heat.
