  1. Add the olive oil to a pan or wok together with a pinch of black pepper
  2. Sautee the onions for 3 or 4 minutes over a medium heat, then add the garlic for a minute or two, stirring so it does not catch
  3. Add the chicken, lemon juice and zest and cook over a low heat for 15 to 20 minutes until the chicken is properly cooked
  4. Meanwhile cook the spaghetti in salted boiling water for 7 to 10 minutes
  5. Stir in the creme fraiche and spring onions and season to taste

Serving suggestions

You can serve the sauce over the spaghetti or mix it in, whatever takes your fancy.
