Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a full kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the diced chicken with a pinch of salt and the juice of 1/2  lemon and cook for 2-3 min or until starting to brown
Meanwhile, add the quick cook spaghetti to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt, then bring to the boil over a high heat
Cook the spaghetti for 3-4 min or until cooked with a slight bite
Once done, drain the spaghetti, reserving a cup of the starchy pasta water and return to the pot with a drizzle of olive oil
Re-boil half a kettle
Peel and finely slice (don't chop!) the garlic
Once the chicken has browned, add the sliced garlic to the pan and cook for 1-2 min until fragrant
Meanwhile, dissolve 1/2  Knorr chicken stock cube in 150ml [250ml] boiled water
Add the chicken stock to the pan and cook for 2-3 min further until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)
Whilst the chicken is cooking, grate the cheddar cheese
Slice the remaining 1/2  lemon into 2  wedges
Finely chop the parsley (including the stalks)
Once the chicken is cooked through, add the clotted cream, peas and half the grated cheddar cheese and cook for 1 min or until everything is warmed through
Add the drained spaghetti and chopped parsley to the pan and give everything a good mix up – this is your lemony chicken & pea spaghetti
Serve the lemony chicken & pea spaghetti with a generous grind of black pepper
Sprinkle over the remaining grated cheddar cheese and top with the lemon wedges
