Chips & Chicken Oven Baked Pasta

Thursday, December 04, 2014



Top with fried chips
Layer the cooked chicken and chicken gravy in the dish
Next boiled noodles, more cheese and dry parsley.
Also pour fresh cream around the edges so it does not burn in the oven.
Baked for 15 minutes, remember just to melt the cheese and the fresh cream to mix well with the dish,

Next top with cheese 

So I kind off played around in the kitchen the other and came up with this dish, I'm not sure if there is any other chip pasta dish, so if you have a recipe please share on my group and you may be featured on my website.

So I would suggest more chips, I used 2 medium potatoes in this dish, next I would probably use 4 and actually layer the chips before the meat as well. 


  • Use chicken fillet cut into cubes, around 1 1/2 inch because they do shrink when being cooked. 
  • Peri-peri sauce
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Tumeric 
  • Cumin
  • Ground coriander
  • Paprika
  • Lemon juice 
  • Ground red chillies
  • Ground garlic
  • Machachos mild dry chilli powder (local spicy shop, but I'm not sure if it can be found world wide, but you can in Southern Africa - so I suggest any mild dry spice)
  • Zesty Lemon Pepper spice
1. Marinate the chicken, again with spices it depends on your taste so add according to what you like. 
2. Cook on a low heat till the meat is done, also add a bit of water so it does not dry up. 
3. You can braise some onions in olive oil before cooking the meat (vagaar), I kind of skipped this step that day but you can if you want to.
4. While the chicken is being cooked, peel your potatoes. Like I said I underestimated how much I would need for this dish (I used 2) so I suggest 4, and you layer some before your meat. So it would be chips, cheese, meat, chips, cheese, pasta and cheese.
5. Boil some noodles according to much you will be needing, be careful don't over boil since it will be going in the oven, and make sure to season with salt.
6. After layering everything, pour some fresh cream around sides of the dish, I used 250ml of fresh cream - this is just to add more flavour and also to stop drying to much. If you see that your meat with very saucy after cooking than just use half of the fresh cream. Be careful you don't want it extremely saucy - you can also use white sauce instead of fresh cream.
7. Cover in aluminium foil. Preheat your oven for 5 mins, than bake at around 180 degrees for around 15 minutes  - this is not to cook anything! You're just melting the cheese and heating the dish, keeping for too long will result in really hard overcooked pasta.
8. Garnish with parsley.
