Chicken Fajita Pasta!
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch bite size cubes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 packet of taco or fajita seasoning (I used Taco Bell Taco Seasoning)
- 1 Large onion, diced
- 3 multicolored Bell Peppers, diced
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups chicken broth (I used Swanson)
- 10 oz of your favorite pasta
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 3/4 cup of heavy cream
- 1 (10-oz) can Ro-Tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles
- Take the cubed chicken and season with half the packet of taco/fajita seasoning & set aside.
- In a large, deep skillet, heat one tablespoon olive oil with the seasoned chicken, cooking about 1-2 minutes each side until browned, remove and set aside.
- Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the hot skillet then add the onions, bell peppers, and remaining taco seasoning. Cook while stirring until they are softened.
- Turn heat down to LOW, then add in the minced garlic, stirring for about one minute, then remove and set aside with the chicken.
- In the same skillet, add the broth, cream, diced tomatoes, uncooked pasta, salt & pepper.
- Mix until combined then bring to a boil for about one minute
- Reduce the heat to LOW , cover and cook for 12 or so minutes or until pasta is tender & liquid is absorbed (mostly)
- Add the chicken and veggies back into the skillet and stir for about about 3 minutes.
