What To Cook This Weekend: Pasta Recipes With Chicken
Pasta + chicken = a hearty and delicious meal!
Pasta recipes are usually favorite dishes for many people. Chicken dishes are well-loved by both kids and adults. Put these two favorite ingredients together and you're sure to have a winning meal on your hands.
Pasta replaces the rice you might normally eat, the sauce is the bright and vibrant flavor that might be what your chicken might have been stewed in, and the chicken is the ulam you want.
Pasta recipes with chicken really are instant winning meals. Here are recipes to try:
1 Chicken Alfredo Pasta Recipe
This creamy pasta sauce is a simple sauce flavored with all-purpose cream, a tangy sharp cheese, and of course, seared chicken pieces so you layer all the umami flavors you can into the pasta. Leave it chockful of chicken or add in some sweet bell peppers for a Mexican fajita night.
2 Garlic Chicken Pasta Recipes
Another delicious pairing with chicken is garlic. This aromatic ingredient is sharp but when cooked, it develops a sweetness with toasted notes that is a great complement to the chicken. Mix it into an oil-based sauce for a classic take on an aglio olio topped with chicken and add some veggies to bulk it some more.
3 Kung Pao Chicken Recipe
You might know the kung pao sauce as the same sauce that's called Charlie Chan. This spicy, sweet sauce is a great sauce to toss with chicken and pasta! Plus, you can make the sauce ahead of time, sealed in a jar, so whenever the craving strikes, you can toss it all together after searing chicken and boiling the pasta. Easy and flavorful in one easy step!
4 Chicken Parmigiana Recipe
If you want the classic Italian take on the chicken and pasta meal combo, you can't make a meal more appetizing than this pairing. A moist and perfectly fried chicken fillet that's been breaded for maximum crunch is topped with melty cheese. It's served on top of a simple but flavorful pasta tossed in marinara.
5 Creamy Cheesy Spaghetti With Chicken, Corn, and Mushrooms Recipe
Loaded is an understatement when it comes to this glorious mound of pasta! If a creamy, cheesy spaghetti is what you're after for any occasion, this is the pasta recipe to try. It's loaded with chicken chunks but it's also topped with corn, mushrooms, and handfuls of grated cheese. These toppings all come together with the ultra creamy sauce that coats the spaghetti strands. You'll get a burst of flavor with every bite.
6 Chicken Sopas Recipes
You can't forget that the most appetizing chicken and pasta recipe is the sopas! This chunky soup is a comforting bowl of shredded chicken, elbow macaroni pasta, and vegetables in a milky flavored with chicken stock. You can even give this a twist by exerting extra effort in making chicken meatballs so it's heartier and more appetizing to eat, whether you're feeling under the weather or not.
