Serves 4

Ingredients:

Tegel Manuka Smoked Chicken Rashers
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, packed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 50 grams parmesan, grated
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 500 grams pasta (any preferred type)
  • 200 grams Tegel chicken rashers
  • 300 grams Tegel smoked chicken breast

Method:

  1. In a blender combine the basil, olive oil, cashews, garlic, parmesan, lemon juice, salt, and pepper until smooth. This can be left overnight if you want a more mild garlic flavour.
  2. In a pan of boiling water, cook your desired pasta. Ensure pasta is al dente as it will continue to cook with the sauce.
  3. While the pasta is cooking, cut the rashers into small pieces and fry until crispy.
  4. Slice the smoked chicken breast into pieces, set aside.
  5. Drain the pasta. Add the pesto mixture, chicken rashers, and smoked breast to pasta. Stir over low heat until the sauce is warmed.
