I got leftovers roasted chicken bought from Coles. As I didn’t want to waste food. I cut up the roasted chicken into pieces and create a new dish with penne pasta and vegetables.
It’s a simple quick and easy meal. You can roast your own chicken if you want. Then cut up into pieces, removed bones. The vegetables are leek and spring onion. This pasta is delicious, comfort and hearty meal for cold day as well as any day. Let’s cook!!!!
