Chicken Pasta Helper
Normally hamburger helper made with ground beef, but tonight I made it with ground Chicken since my husband cannot eat red meat.
I try as much as I can to stay away from ready made packaged food, they are full of sodium and preservatives.
I like cooking from scratch so I made up this recipe for tonight’s dinner for my husband. It turned out delicious and healthier version.
1 1/2 LB ground chicken breast
1 bag 24 OZ of Rotini pasta or any of your favorite dry pasta
2 tbsp. chopped dried onion
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1/4 tbsp. sea salt
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. chili powder (hot or sweet)
1 tbsp. taco seasoning mix
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 cups of fiesta blend cheese
1 cup reserved pasta water
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
Over medium heat add olive oil to a large skillet, add ground chicken and sauté until fully cooked.
Add all the spices, sea salt and cook for 1 minute.
Add pasta, cheese, reserved pasta water and mix well until the cheese is melted.
