ingredients

directions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Add 2 1/2 tsp of salt and penne to the boiling water. Cook according to package directions.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining 1/2 tsp of salt and the oregano.
  • Cut the chicken across the short side to create strips.
  • Heat the olive oil in a wide skillet over high heat.
  • When the oil is hot, add the chicken.
  • Spread it out into a single layer.
  • Then add the sliced peppers.
  • Cook without stirring for about 5 min - you would like the chicken to brown a little bit. If it seems as if it will burn, stir it.
  • Add the salsa, stir and cook for about 5 more min or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Stir in the sour cream.
  • Spoon cooked penne into a serving bowl or onto plates.
  • Top with the chicken mixture.
  • Sprinkle with chopped cilantro, if desired, and a little of the shredded cheese.

    I was disappointed. I'm trying to find the copy cat recipe for Red Robin's Southwest Chicken Pasta, which of course they removed from their menu. This one was all I could find so I decided to give it a try. It wasn't bad but it didn't come close and really not that flavorful. Will keep looking.

    Loved it ! I used green peppers instead of red, and a jar of medium salsa verde. Turned out great - some heat, but not too much. The cilantro and cheese were the perfect finish. Thanks!

    Maybe I didn't do it right, but the portions didn't turn out quite right. 2 red bell peppers was way more than I needed. I just used one. Served WAY more than four- I think my husband and I will be eating this for the next week. Serving size should be 6-8. Other than that, however, it turned out pretty well, and was fairly simple. Next time I am going to add some shrimp, tapatio (or hotter salsa) and a little lime juice. Yuummmyy
