Another winner from my Pick a Chef baby. Needed dinner in a hurry and using ingredients already in my pantry. Since I wanted some extra sauce for my dinner, I added the entire can of tomatoes (about 1 1/2 - 2 cups) to the chicken and scaled the amount of chipotle in adobo accordingly. Also mixed the pasta into the sauce just prior to serving to make sure every nook and cranny was seasoned and dressed. The results were just yoummy - smoky and spicy and chock full of vegetables. I will certainly be making this again soon. Thanks!
