Sour Cream Chicken

The best way to end a long day at work, that perhaps ends with rugby and rain and being soaked to the bone, is with a quick pasta meal. Today's quick pasta is something like a carbonara, with a mixture of egg and cheese tossed through hot pasta to become a sauce right before your eyes. Add to that some chicken and sour cream and you have a creamy, cheesy, chickeny pile of pasta to warm you up from the inside out. It's not really the healthiest of meals - in fact, it's not very healthy at all. That's sort of what's so good about it.

Sour Cream Chicken Pasta

2 chicken breasts, sliced into small strips
Cracked black pepper
2 servings fettucine
1/3 cup (or more) grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 large tablespoon sour cream

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the pasta according to the packet directions. While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken with cracked black pepper and heat oil in a large saucepan. Cook the chicken until is is done all the way through and set it aside.

Whisk the eggs and grated parmesan together in a small bowl. When the pasta is cooked, turn the element off, drain it and return it to the pan. Quickly add the egg and cheese mixture to the hot pasta and return to the stove (leave the element turned off). Keep stirring the mixture because you want the egg to coat the pasta and cook a little, but not to cook too much and scramble in the bottom of the pan.

Finally, add the dollop of sour cream and stir it into the pasta. Toss the cooked chicken through and then serve immediately.
