A Recipe

If you like spicy and pasta, you'll like this. Cody and I tried it for a new Sunday evening recipe, and it's a keeper. (But we like spicy and we like pasta). ;) This is not recommended for small kids!

Chicken with Chipotle Alfredo Sauce


2 cups uncooked penne pasta (6 oz)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can), finely chopped
1 jar (16 oz) Alfredo pasta sauce
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
...and we added some Red Pepper and some Onion. Because I like both of those things. ;)


1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
2. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken and garlic in oil 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Stir in chile and Alfredo sauce; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
3. Serve chicken mixture over pasta; sprinkle with cilantro.
...Yum. I'm glad we have leftovers. :)
