  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook pasta according to packet instructions. Drain and reserve one cup of cooking water
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes or until browned. Remove and set aside
  4. Add remaining oil to frying pan and add onion and cook for 2 minutes or until softened. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes
  5. Add zucchini, thyme and garlic; cook for a further 2 minutes
  6. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Pour in cooking cream, mustard and return the cooked chicken. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 3 minutes
