If you’re a fan of pasta and also can’t resist a cheeky Nando’s, then you’re going to absolutely love this recipe which combines the two.

A new recipe for Nando’s creamy chicken pasta is all over TikTok at the moment, with amateur chefs sharing videos of themselves making their own versions of the meal. 

One TikTok user, who goes by the name of @elliearm16, recently posted a short video of her making the dish, captioning it: “It’s a HUGE yes from me”, with three green tick emojis. 

The clip opens with the words: “Making the iconic Nando’s chicken pasta,” and shows @elliearm16 creating the meal. 

If you want to have a go at cooking Nando’s chicken pasta, then here’s how to do it (via Metro). 

Firstly, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • An onion

  • Three cloves of garlic

  • Red chilli

  • Your chosen Nando’s sauce

  • Nando’s Season & Bake Kit

  • 200ml cream or Philadelphia spread

  • Two chicken breasts

  • Your pasta of choice

And here’s how you make the dish:

Prepare two chicken breasts with spices and your Nando’s dressing of choice. In the TikTok clip, the cook puts them into the frying pan with the ingredients from the next step, but you could do them in the oven, then cut them into smaller pieces and add them.

Fry chopped onions, chilli and garlic in a pan with olive oil.

Add your Nando’s sauce once the above is golden.

After a couple of minutes, add cream and mix. Allow to simmer for five minutes.

Meanwhile, get your pasta boiling.

Add the pasta once it’s ready.

Grate cheese on the top if you like.

Of course, if chicken isn’t your thing, you could always use Quorn chicken instead, or halloumi (you could even add halloumi to the above chicken dish as well). 

There are plenty of other such recipes on TikTok and Instagram, which you can find by using the hashtag #nandospasta.

Each recipe has its own twist, for instance adding red and green peppers so there is plenty to inspire you.

So get cooking, and enjoy a cheeky Nando's and pasta combo.
