I'm usually not so adventurous to try a recipe that only has four previous reviews, but this one caught my attention and just sounded intriguing. It also had all the ingredients we love. Anyway, as you can tell by my 5 rating, we loved it!!! I have only made this once, but am planning on making it again this week. It was super easy to put together because most of the ingredients are from a can, which I was a bit skeptical about. However, this recipe tasted anything but like it was from a can! Like another review, I too used the diced green chilies instead of the jalapenos. It had the perfect amount of spice to sweetness. It is super chunky and I had my doubts about a couple of my kids eating it when I added the corn, but they all raved about it and have requested it several times since. I tasted it when I was simmering and immediately fell in love! Of course, upon seeing my reaction each of the kids wanted a preview taste too and then no one could wait for the noodles to finish cooking so we could eat! This is definitely a keeper and will be added to our family recipe box for good! I would have given this a 5+ if that was an option!!
I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars for this dish. I left out the black olives (don't care for them) and used 3 large chicken breasts rather than tenderloins but I don't think those changes affected the end result. The dish tasted fine and there's nothing wrong with the recipe itself, but I guess we just prefer a more traditional spaghetti.
This recipe is pretty near perfect! I did modify it based on what I had on had and our personal tastes. And it still turned out great!
I used a canned chicken breast from Costco (12.5 oz.) instead of the tenderloins, spaghetti sauce with meat, Red Gold canned tomatoes with green chiles, no jalapenos, no olives (yuck), no onion powder, using a leftover half cup of chopped onions instead. I had about half can of black beans leftover, so I threw those in. And I used regular thin spaghetti, as I didn't have any angelhair. It was a quick and easy recipe to make, and my picky eater even liked it! Had just the right amount of spicyness for the kids.
Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious, hearty and definitely a keeper. I did make a few changes - sauteed and onion and a big clove of garlic instead of using onion and garlic powders. Also subbed leftover roasted chicken breast for the chicken tenders - green chilies and some crushed red pepper flakes for the jalepenos (daughter is allergic) and omitted the olives. We really liked the corn. Lovcd finding a recipe that I can just throw together on a busy night. Thanks!
This was a very nice change from regular spaghetti. I do think it needs more chicken if you plan on serving 8 but other than that I have no complaints.
I made this recipe for something different than plain ole spaghetti. I used diced green peppers instead of the jalepenos and 3 chicken breasts I cut into strips and seasoned with garlic salt. I also didn't have any diced tomatoes, so I diced 3 small tomatoes and used a small can of tomatoe sauce in place of that. Used frozen corn instead of a can of corn. As I do with my regular spaghetti sauce I always add a little bit of baking soda to cut the acidity and a teaspoon or two of sugar. Its cooking now, and I anticipate it to be very good!
Not impressed. Missng something. Will not make again.
Very different from the typical spaghetti i make but i really liked this one. The corn gives it a really nice texture. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand.
