Chili Chicken & Pasta


I found this recipe for Chili Chicken & Pasta a while back. The original recipe instructs you to make the sauce and add the chicken to it, and then pour it over plain pasta. But I changed it up a bit, stirring the pasta and the sauce together and placing the chicken on top. For this week's post, I'm including the original recipe and my variation. Hope you enjoy!

Original Recipe:

Ingredients:


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1 can Condensed Cream of Chicken with Herbs Soup
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 cups hot cooked corkscrew-shaped pasta

Directions: Heat oil in skillet. Add chicken and cook until browned, stirring often. Add soup, milk, cheese, chili powder and garlic and heat through. Serve over pasta.


My Variation:

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups pasta

Directions:
Heat oil in a skillet. Add chicken and cook until browned, stirring often. Remove chicken from pan.
In a separate pot, cook pasta and drain water. Add soup, milk, chili powder, and garlic. Stir and heat through. Serve pasta with chicken on top. Season chicken with additonal chili powder.
