  • 1 tbsp.oil
  • 1 rod of leek - around 150g
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 150 g chickenbreast cold cut. Cut in stripes or diced, as you wish
  • 100 g cheese spread /soft cheese here light version
  • 250 ml vegetable broth
  • 50 ml white wine - optional
  • 500 g spagetti or any pasta to your liking


  1. start cooking the pasta first, because the sauce won´t take long. Keep half a cup of the noodle water for later use
  2. heat the oil in a big pan and fry the onion and the chicken until slightly brown.
  3. Now add the leek and cook another 2 minutes
  4. deglaze with the white wine and when the wine is vanished add the broth and stir in the cheese
  5. add salt and pepper to taste. Thicken a bit, if necessary. But be careful because the noodle water will also act as thickener.
  6. Now the pasta should also be cooked. Pour of the water - don´t forget to keep half a cup- and fill the pasta back into the pot.
  7. add the pasta water and the sauce and stir thoroughly. If the sauce gets too thick, just add some milk
  8. Tastes great with fresh chives and parmesan!
