Ready In:




  • In a small bowl, combine salt, thyme, ground red pepper and paprika. Set aside.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and brown lightly. Add half the dry seasoning mixture, the green onion and chicken stock. Reduce by half (about 2 minutes). Stir in cream and let sauce come to a boil. When it boils, whisk in Parmesan cheese.
  • Reduce heat and let simmer on low to reduce about 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked rigatoni and toss to completely coat pasta with sauce.
  • Brush tops of chicken breasts with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Gently pat with remaining dry seasoning mix.
  • Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in saute pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, place chicken in pan, seasoned side down, and cook 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes more. Remove to a cutting board and slice.
  • Divide rigatoni among pasta bowls. Place chicken strips evenly across each. Garnish with diced red and yellow bell peppers and a sprig of cilantro.

  1. Ok...first off...I make a lot of pasta dishes. I thought I would try this one. When I finished making the pasta and the sauce I wondered if I had forgotten something because it was so bland. I finished the recipe by making the chicken. The outcome was very bad...very bland. So I threw it out and started over thinking my spices were old. I opened my new spices and had the same outcome. So I threw food out twice in three hours...sorry this was a big...never make again...for me...
  2. Now a little message from my husband. Take it away, DH... "You people are like family to me. It's the little things, like a home cooked meal, that make it here uurr...ummm your home. Please accept this meal as a token of our esteem. Remember my door is always open." Made for My 3 Chefs.
