1. Set oven to 220°C. Slash and rub chicken breasts with 1/2 tbsp honey, zest from 1 lemon, 1 tbsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a lined baking dish and roast for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.

2. Cook pasta according to packet instructions, or until cooked al dente. Drain, reserving 2 cups pasta water.

3. Peel and dice onion. Add to a pan with 2 tbsp oil from the sun-dried tomato jar and sauté for 5 minutes. Grate zucchini and strip thyme leaves, add to pan with sun-dried tomatoes and 1-2 crushed garlic cloves. Cook for further 2 minutes.

4. Dice and add Philadelphia cheese, 1 cup (pasta) water and 2 tbsp dijon mustard. Simmer, stirring, for 5 minutes until combined. Add spinach to wilt, and extra pasta water if needed. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5. Toss together pasta and sauce. Chop and stir through chives and squeeze over lemon juice to taste. Slice snow peas.
