Mary Berry's Creamy Chicken Pasta Bake, a fantastic family meal that is super easy to make. A creamy cheesy pasta sauce, grilled garlicky chicken, and juicy fresh tomatoes, what a glorious dinner!
Boil the pasta according to the packet instructions. Drain the water and set aside.
Cut the chicken breasts into pieces, add them to a re-sealable bag together with the garlic granules, paprika, quarter a teaspoon of salt and a pinch of pepper.
Heat up the oil in a pan or a grill pan, add the chicken and cook for about 5-6 minutes until cooked through.
To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and stir to make a paste.
Gradually pour in the milk, continuing to stir until it thickens into a sauce.
Add the parmesan, dijon mustard, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Mix the sauce with the pasta.
Transfer half of it to an oven-proof dish, then arrange the chicken pieces over it, and add the remaining pasta.
Chop and deseed the tomatoes, then top the pasta with them.
Bake at 180 degrees C (360 F) for 20 minutes until bubbly hot.
