Stewed Chicken Pasta-1

This simple pasta dish has been a longtime favorite of mine. I love pasta, but don’t cook it often enough as I’m always inclined to add cheese and while I’m a huge lover of cheese, I do try to cook with it as little as possible. For me pasta almost always has to have cheese, so you can see how this is a problem. What I love about this dish is the fact that it’s so good on its own that I don’t miss the cheese! Boneless thighs are sautéed with lots of herbs and peppers making a saucy stew which is then tossed with pasta. Stewed Chicken Pasta-1-3The key to this recipe is to under cook the pasta just slightly then add to the stewed chicken, cooking it for an additional 5 minutes, allow it to soak up the sauce. It’s a simple, no fuss, inexpensive dish that’s perfect for a weeknight meal and the kids will approve! I used peppers but zucchini, thinly sliced carrots and spinach would be great also.Stewed Chicken Pasta-1-7

    I’ve been using a few of your recipes exactly how you instructed and every time my food hits the spot!
    I love the way you are able to maintain the authentic Caribbean flavours even when you suggest alternative ingredients (let’s just say the supermarkets in West London aren’t adequately stocked)!
    Will definitely be trying the more difficult recipes later, thanks for sharing! X
