Quick & Easy Meal: Hot Pepper Chicken Pasta

As I hone my homemaking skills, I cherish quick and easy meal recipes. There are some nights that a girl just doesn’t want to have time to put a full meal out on the table. Tonight I whipped up something that was too quick, easy, and delicious to keep all to ourselves.

I’ve decided to call it Hot Pepper Chicken Pasta (Leigh could probably come up with a better name (she’s an excellent namer), but that’s all I got)

Hot Pepper Chicken Pasta

Prep Time: 2 seconds          Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • chicken breasts (or cutlets)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • EVOO
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • spaghetti
  • tomato sauce
  • heavy cream


  1. Heat a large pot of water until boiling. Add spaghetti, cook al dente and drain. Return pasta to pot.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan over med-high heat. Add diced garlic and red pepper flakes. In terms of the red pepper – more is more.
  3. Cut the chicken into thin strips and add to the oil. Cook until brown. Add salt and pepper and more red pepper flakes to taste.
  4. Add cooked chicken to pasta.
  5. Top with equal portions of tomato sauce and heavy cream. Simmer on low until hot.

Ta-da! Your basic chicken pasta (with a bit of a kick)…

…ok that’s not exactly the pasta I made tonight…but this is better than the picture I just took of mine…

Serve and enjoy!
