How to Make Southwest Chicken Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Dice up tomatoes, set aside. Dice up the chicken breasts, set aside. Peel and mince garlic cloves, set aside. Wash cilantro, chop and set aside. Start water boiling in a large stew pot. Put in noodles.
  2. Saute garlic in butter and a bit of olive oil. Add chicken, salt and pepper to taste, slightly undercook the chicken as it will be in a bit longer. Now add the chicken broth, chilies, and tomatoes. Cook just for a minute or two so the tomatoes are warm, but not mushy, ditto on the chilies. Take off the stove.
  3. Drain linguini noodles. Add the first pan of ingredients, throw in diced cilantro, lightly mix up entire pot. Serve with crumbled feta cheese over the top -- heavy on the cheese!
  4. You'll find this is so speedy and delicious, you'll be making this for special dinners. We think this is a drop dead killer dinner.
    PS serve with libations like Coronas and a slice of lime.
    sooooo yuuummmmmyyy!
