Devine chicken pasta!!!

by mommahasapottymouth

This is in no way a food blog, but from time to time I will share a recipe that I love or turned out well. This one happens to be one my family created and I have adopted a few of my own things to add to it.

Please know i do not measure things while cooking; its more of a taste and add more kinda measurement.

 

You will need:

  • chicken ( i recently tried thighs, which is good because it is dark meat, but breasts are good too)
  • pasta ( i really love whole grain pasta, as it adds color to the otherwise plain-looking dish, but Matt does not. one word of caution: do not use colored pasta or angel hair, color adds a weird flavor and angel hair gets mushy.)
  • butter
  • wok oil ( if possible, if not a touch of veggie oil works too)
  • one onion
  • garlic ( i usually end up using like 4 cloves)
  • crushed red pepper (to add a hint of a kick)
  • garlic salt
  • shredded Parmesan cheese
  • GREEN Tabasco sauce ( red will not work)

i boil my chicken first. after that i cut it into bite size pieces and throw it in the pan with butter (one tbl spoon works) and a touch of oil. add your onion and garlic (chopped and minced) and cook until brown.

 

while this is cooking i cook my pasta. only til they are JUST done. put them in a strainer and run very cold water over them until all the noodles are cold (this step is critical, because warm noodles equal mushy noodles= YUCK)

 

throw your chicken mixture into the pasta pot and cover. add more butter (one or more tbl spoons) and a touch of oil and the onion and garlic and fry up the pasta until almost crisp.

 

when you are satisfied with your noodles add to chicken and toss. top with a sprinkle of  cheese and green sauce.

 

 

i must say that i add the garlic salt and red pepper while i am frying. you may omit the pepper if you don’t want it too spicy.

 

enjoy!!
