Company Chicken & Pasta

Growing up, “company” chicken was the dish that came out on for honored adult dinner guests or family parties. This recipe is simple and inexpensive, though, which makes it a wonderful meal for any weeknight…and still delicious enough your company would be happy to come back for more.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. spaghetti
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. cumin

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onions and peppers until tender (8-10 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Place the chicken in the skillet, and brown, flipping once (5 minutes per side).
  3. Return onions and peppers to skillet. Add tomatoes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, chili powder, red pepper, and cumin. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165ºF (25-30 minutes).
