Recipe idea - Chicken Pasta Bake

The great thing about getting a Magic Bag from your local East of England Co-op is that you’re guaranteed not to get lots of just one thing. What you get depends on what’s leftover at the end of the day. However, you can expect to get a mixture of products from fruit & vegetables, meat, fish & poultry, bread & cakes and milk & dairy. It’ll never be just lots of one thing.   

One of the most common items to find in one of our magic bags is chicken. With just a few additional ingredients, which you’re bound to find in the back of your fridge or your cupboard, you can make a delicious chicken pasta bake.

A packet of chicken breast fillets is perfect to fry in a pan for a quick tea, and with just a few extra household ingredients you’ve got a winning formula, perfect for the whole family!



  1. Heat a pan of oil and dust off a tin of tomatoes from the back of your cupboard and let them simmer for 20 minutes
  2. If you’ve got some leftover cheese, grate some up and stir in. Season to your preferred taste, making use of any of those old spice shakers in your kitchen
  3. Cook the chicken and dice in to small pieces
  4. Cook up some pasta
  5. Pour it all in a big dish and bake in the oven until it starts bubbling

And voila… easy and affordable!

Not only is it quick, but it’ll feed the whole family and it makes use of ingredients from your £3.30 magic bag, with a little help from some ingredients at the back of the cupboard or fridge.
