Grandma’s one-pot chicken tagliatelle

One-pot chicken tagliatelle

This one-pot chicken tagliatelle recipe is very dear to me as it comes with a history. I will not bore you with the history, but I would definitely note that one that history, a couple of key components make sense for this dish.

First and foremost this is done in one pot, that’s it. Just follow the recipe and dump the ingredients there one by one and you will be fine. Second, this is such a warm and hearty meal that it will blow your socks off. And third, the key ingredients are fairly cheap and easy to find (like chicken and pasta)

One-pot chicken tagliatelle

So you will need:

  1. 500 gr of chicken drumsticks
  2. 250 gr of  tagliatelle
  3. 30 gr of butter
  4. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  5. 6 cups of water
  6. salt

How to cook Grandma’s one-pot chicken tagliatelle:

  1. Clean up the chicken drumsticks from the excesses that you do not like, dry it up and marinate it with salt
  2. In a big pot, we add the butter and the olive oil. We like the butter for the taste and we add the olive oil so that the butter does not burn
  3. Add the chicken once the butter and the olive oil heats up and sear them on all sides.
  4. After the chicken has been seared on all sides and you have got this delicious golden color, add the water and let it simmer in medium heat for 20 minutes (following WHO’s recommendations in these times). 
  5. Add the pasta and cook them by following the directions of the packaging and everything should be fine. Note that it may require you to mix everything up every once in awhile, but be careful because after 20 minutes of cooking the chicken drumsticks would be crazy soft.

As such, my tips are lessons learned from failure, complete mess-ups and whatever experience I have gotten in the past.
