Easy Chicken Pasta Recipe+Video
A new change for your favorite pasta dinner! This simple recipe requires chicken, spaghetti, chicken cream, salsa, sour cream and cheese, making it the epitome of comfort food.
All my kids love spaghetti (which kid doesn’t like it?), but can switch from classic pasta recipes every once in a while! Whenever we need some variety, we like to make this chicken pasta, grilled pasta, and even pasta peppers!
Chicken in spaghetti? Yes!
I admit that I am hesitant to try this recipe because we have always liked our classic pasta recipe, which has red sauce and beef. That being said, chicken + pasta is my favorite dinner combination, so we knew we had to try it. I am happy to report that the results are amazing (and easy to make).
When you see the ingredients in this recipe, you will understand why it is so popular. The main ingredients are:
- Creamy Chicken Soup
- sour cream
We were surprised that there were some spices in it (salsa, Mexican cheese and taco seasoning), but we actually liked all the flavors! It’s not spicy at all, but it’s not the Italian seasoning you expect in pasta, it has a Mexican flavor that makes this dish so delicious!
