The instruction how to make Poached chicken and asparagus spaghetti

  1. Combine the stock, wine, leek, lemon and parsley in a large frying pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Add the chicken and reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes. Set aside for 30 minutes to develop the flavours. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken to a clean work surface. Coarsely shred.
  2. Strain the poaching liquid through a fine sieve over a jug. Discard the leek, lemon and parsley. Return the liquid to the pan over high heat and bring to the boil. Boil for 25-30 minutes or until reduced to 80ml (1/3 cup). Transfer to a heatproof jug and set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Stir in the cream and chives. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Add the asparagus and peas in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain. Return to pan.
  4. Add the chicken and cream mixture to the pasta and toss until well combined. Divide among serving bowls. Top with parmesan to serve.
