* 300g dried curly fettuccine pasta

* 1⁄2 barbecued chicken, skin and bones removed, meat coarsely shredded

* 2 x 80g Boursin Garlic & Herbs cheese

* 125g (3⁄4 cup) sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped

3 Method / Steps

Step 1

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook for 2 minutes or until bright green and tender-crisp. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the broccoli to a bowl. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook following packet directions or until al dente.

Step 2

While the pasta cooks heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, broccoli, cheese and tomato. Use a ladle to transfer 250ml (1 cup) of pasta cooking water to the chicken mixture. Stir until the cheese melts. Continue to cook, tossing, for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

Step 3

Drain the pasta and add to the broccoli mixture. Toss until well combined. Season.
