Very quick and tasty, slightly spicy, a good weeknight supper. To my taste, there was twice as much corn as needed for two servings, but then I added about twice as much chicken . DH and I had some for lunch, and will have more tonight, perhaps with some marinara sauce. I used egg noodles because that is what I had on hand. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag.

This was fantastic! We were snowed in all weekend (glad I'd made it to the grocery before the storm) and this was so delicious! I loved the zest of the Mexican-style corn with the chicken and pasta. I made as directed, using whole wheat macaroni, and wouldn't change a thing! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
