spicy chicken and pasta

here’s a simple spicy (but not hot) pasta and chicken dish with my fav pasta: angel hair. i threw in some extra red bell pepper and also added some turmeric.

i had it over two servings of broccoli lightly blanched. yum!


  • 4-1/2 oz angel hair pasta, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 lb chicken breast tenders
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1-1/2 cups low sodium spaghetti sauce


Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain.

Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Brown the onion over medium high heat for about 1 minute. Mix the flour and the water. Add the chicken, chili powder, sauce, and flour mixture to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Add pasta, mix and cover for 5 minutes.

Serve over vegetables, like blanched broccoli or a vegetable of your choice.
