"A cheesy, creamy pasta dish that has just a bit of a bite. Reduce the jalapeno according to how spicy you like it. This goes great with garlic toast." — JLILLY19

i had to make some major modifications due to what i had on hand, coupled with the fact that my 2 year old would be eating it and she doesn't do well with spice. i didn't flour the chicken, i just seasoned it heavily with montreal steak seasoning, some onion powder, and a light sprinkling of red pepper flakes, and stir-fried the chicken. I doubled the sauce for a pound of angel hair and used two chicken breasts, and i think that ratio was perfect. the sauce was pretty thin but i actually enjoyed it that way, which is strange for me, as i usually like a creamier sauce, but this was great! i used a brick of colby jack cheese and it was the tiniest bit stringy, but that was probably my fault for shredding the cheese too thick. i also eliminated the jalapeno and doubled the garlic. the flavor was intense, the sauce was delicious, and somehow managed to coat the pasta very well even though it was thin. everyone in my family enjoyed this and i will definitely be making it again. yum!!!
If anything, this dish wasn't spicy enough for our tastes. I made the recipe with it's exact measurements & it came out okay. Everyone in the house ate it but I would definitely make some small changes next time I prepare it. I used 1 bell pepper and 1 onion & felt that it was too much for the amount of sauce that the recipe yields. So next time I will either cut the amount of those two vegetables in half, or double the liquid ingredients in the sauce. There was so much onion, it was hard to decipher what was onion and what was pasta. Maybe the ones I used were just too large. I did take the other reveiwer's advice and make sure all the veggies were chopped and ready to go prior to cooking the pasta and chicken. Overall, it was good, just going to doctor it up next time to suit our family's tastes. Thank you for providing a nice change of pace for dinner tonight!
The recipe was pretty good. You need to have all your chopped vegatables ready prior to starting the recipe....so that the pasta and chicken don't get too cool! I will definitely make it again, will just be a little more prepared!
Excellent!!! My husbands favortite dinner!!
Very tasty and good for the whole family. Because I have some in my family that loves spicy food and some that can't even handle black pepper, I subbed mild green chilies for the jalapenos. I also skipped the bell pepper, adding a bit more onion instead. Also, instead of pasta, I put the gravy and chicken over mashed potatoes which turned out very delicious. The only thing I was a bit disappointed in, was the fact that even after breading my chicken and adding extra spice on top, for some reason, it didn't seep into the meat itself. Major bummer :(. Otherwise, all in all, it was very good.
Wow! I just made this for dinner...yummo!! I don't know how anyone could say this is not delicous! I only made a few moderations, because of what I did and didn't have in the house. I did double the sauce and why not?! It is super yummy! I used extra cayenne pepper because my husband loves spicy food and I also used pepper jack cheese since I didn't have jalapeno peppers. I did sub fat free sour cream...it made me feel a little less guilty about such a heavy sauce! Again, WOW!! I loved it!!
Pretty good, the adults liked it...the kids ate it, but didn't want seconds and they're not picky kids, just didn't like the flavor combo here.
This was really really good! Unfortunately, I did have to change part of it even though I hated to. I didn't have flour, so instead of coating the chicken, I flavoured the oil in the pan with salt, pepper, and cayenne, which worked fine. Once the sauce was finished (had to use a little corn starch to thicken), I put my cooked linguini in the pan with the sauce and coated it. I only cook for two so there was a little left over, but my bf took that for lunch the next day and said it was even better. Good man :) When I make it again (and again, and again and...) I think I might try chopped mushrooms in it too.
