There’s much fuss about quick dinners these days. You can start this and have it on the table in under 30 minutes, EASILY. I promise.

I’ve been making it for more than seven years about once a fortnight but never less than once a month. I guess it’s this family’s spag bol.

The only thing that has changed since I started making this is I now tend to use chicken tenderloins rather than faffing around with chicken breasts and my ginger shallot sauce is a compulsory accompaniment (also now added to recipe below).
