"This isn't your mother's chicken spaghetti! It has an Italian flavor with a hint of tequila sauce. This is an easy recipe that keeps well. Store it in sealable bags or freeze it for later. Kids love it."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil; add the pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain. Place spaghetti in a large bowl.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the chicken in the hot oil until browned; stir in the Italian seasoning and garlic and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and tequila; simmer another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the bowl with the spaghetti and stir to combine; serve immediately.

Excellent taste. I suggest you allow the tomato and tequila sauce simmer for more than 5 minutes. The tequila was quite intense at 5 mins, make it 10 minutes.
