This was one of those Ready Steady Cook moments and the result was rather good so I thought I would add it here so it can be reproduced easily.

Mise en place

  • Slice the chorizo thinly
  • Cut the chicken into thin bite-sized pieces - nice and thin means they will cook quickly
  • Cut each mushroom onto about 3 slices


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or a frying pan, add a good grind of pepper and tip in the leeks
  2. Gentry sauté the leeks for 3 minutes - don't let them take on any colour
  3. Turn the heat up add add the mushrooms and stir-fry them until they start to release a little water
  4. Add the chorizo and stir-fry for for 2 minutes
  5. Mix in the chicken pieces and the sliced garlic and cook until the chicken is done and not pink when cut.
  6. Now is a good time to start the broccoli and the pasta - add the pasta to fast boiling water and boil for about 4 minutes. Dried pasta will take longer. The broccoli should be steamed for about the same time depending upon how well cooked you like it.
  7. This should only take 3 or 4 minutes if the chicken is cut thinly enough.
  8. Add the sherry the zest and juice from half a lemon and stir well to de-glaze the pan.
  9. Remove from the heat and pour in the cream and mix really well to combine.
  10. Pour over the cooked pasta.
