Spicy chicken pasta

Spicy chicken pasta with juicy, mildly hot chicken in a creamy yogurt sauce. Ready in under 30 minutes.

1 chicken thigh   1 tsp garlic powder   1 tsp cayenne pepper   1 tsp red pepper flakes   1 tbsp olive oil   1/2 tsp salt   6 ounces cooked pasta / 3 cups uncooked pasta   2 tbsp olive oil


1 mediumsized onion,  roughly chopped  1 jalapeno pepper  10 oz diced tomatoes  1/2 tsp garlic powder  1/2 tsp cayenne pepper  1/4 tsp red pepper flakes  1 cup chicken stock  1/2 tsp salt  1/4 cup Greek yogurt  1 tsp ground cumin


Marinate the chicken: In a bowl, mix chicken thigh, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, olive oil, and salt. Let it marinate for 20 minutes.



Cook the pasta according to package instructions, then drain and set aside.



Cook the marinated chicken thigh in a heated skillet for 12-14 minutes until fully cooked. Transfer to a plate and cut into strips.



Make the sauce: Sauté onion and jalapeno, add diced tomatoes, spices, chicken stock. Cook until thickened. Add cooked pasta and chicken strips. Toss to coat. Garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!



1. Make sure to properly marinate the chicken for at least 20 minutes to ensure it absorbs all the flavors and becomes tender.  2. Be careful not to overcook the chicken, as it can become dry. Cook it until the center is thoroughly cooked, but still juicy and moist.

To eat this dish, take a forkful of spicy chicken pasta, ensuring you get a bit of chicken, pasta, and sauce. Savor the creamy, mildly hot flavors and enjoy the juicy, moist chicken.
