Chicken Carbonara Fries

  • Time: 30 mins
  • Serves: 8

What you need


  • 200g pancetta, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 700g double cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Parmesan
  • 1 large packet fries, cooked
  • Parsley, fine

Ah, the carbonara - up there with pizza in terms of Italy's most bastardised dishes. From a humble yet delicious Roman pasta it has, according to many angry Italians, been desecrated and mauled to become something unrecognisable, a cream drenched, eggless chimera. However, nothing would be achieved without innovation and here at Twisted it's our humble opinion that fries are a sublime addition, as are chicken and double cream (sorry Italy!).


  1. In a large, deep sided saucepan fry the pancetta cubes in a little oil until they are golden, a few minutes. Add the garlic and fry until fragrant then pour over the cream. Add a touch of salt and pepper.
  2. Grate parmesan into the sauce and stir to incorporate, then add the chicken chunks.
  3. Stir to combine and bring to a gentle simmer.
  4. Pour over the chips and sprinkle with more grated parmesan and the chopped parsley.
  5. Eat (with friends).
