Spicy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta is a quick, delicious and filling dinner – on the table in 20 minutes !
The recipe I am sharing today, is one of our favorite Chicken dishes, which we have at least twice or even three times a month.
Spicy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta is perfect for a busy weeknight and if you are really pressed for time, pick up rotisserie chicken from the deli.
I grew up on rice, not pasta as much. My granny was an excellent cook and to have rice regularly never became boring as she had such great dishes to go with them.
On the other hand, I, feel more comfortable with Pasta dishes – cooking and experimenting with Pasta is what I really mean.
This is one of the simplest recipes, yet one that we enjoy most as I mentioned above.
Not too spicy, not complicated at all and you can even substitute the Portuguese Spice for something you rather prefer.
One can hardly ever go wrong when teaming up Mushrooms with Chicken and Pasta (unless you are allergic).
All the ingredients, and there are only 6, make a wonderful combination and both adults as well as kids love whenever I serve this dish.
From start to serving, this pasta dish will only take you up to 20 minutes.
Which makes it a fantastic recipe to have on hand for those crazy busy weeknights – or lazy weekends, for that matter!
