Spicy Chicken Marinado

Yes, that name is completely made up.  But the meal is not-it’s fantastic.

Mike’s comment, “I mean, I like spaghetti, but this is awesome.”  Not too hard to please:)  Here’s what you’ll need:

This makes 3 servings.

  • chicken breasts
  • 12 oz. penne pasta {or any other short cut pasta}
  • garlic salt
  • crushed red pepper
  • parsley
  • 3/4 c. marinara sauce
  • 1/2 c. alfredo sauce
  • salt
  • pepper

Spicy Chicken Marinado {Recipe adapted from Tastebook}

Start out by boiling water for your pasta.  Then brown the chicken.  For Mike and I, I used two chicken breasts cut into slices, spiced up with salt and pepper.  Once it is done, set aside.

Meanwhile, salt your pasta water and add the pasta.

When it’s al dente, drain your pasta and then it’s time for the sauce.  Add 1/2 cup alfredo sauce and 3/4 cup marinara sauce.  Stir it all up.

Then add the garlic salt and crushed red pepper, and stir chicken in.  I’m a taste-test cook so I’m not sure exactly how much I used {maybe a 1/2 tablespoon or so of each}, but just season for as much heat and garlic as you like.  Then top with parsley and enjoy:)

Add garlic bread and a salad and you’ll have a feast!  Since we’re all about the numbers over here, we calculated this to be about 500 calories per serving and about $2.00.  Not too shabby.
