Paul Flynn's roast chicken rigatoni serves 4.

  1. Place the shallots, red wine vinegar, pepper and tarragon stalks into a pan and reduce the vinegar until it has nearly evaporated, then remove from the heat.
  2. Put the Kerrygold butter into a mixing bowl and beat for 3 minutes until it becomes light and fluffy.
  3. Add the mustard and chopped tarragon to the butter, remove the tarragon stalks from the reduction, then add the shallots mixture to the Kerrygold butter.
  4. Once the mixture is combined, roll the Kerrygold butter in parchment and place it in the fridge.
  5. Cook the pasta according to the instructions and drain, leaving a little of the cooking liquid (around half a cup) in the pot.
  6. Slice off a quarter of the Kerrygold butter and add it to the pasta along with the chicken.
  7. Season with grated parmesan and serve.
