Tequila Chicken Pasta

Tequila Chicken Pasta created by der_misanthrope

Chicken and veggies in a tomato tequila lime sauce over pasta. My husband LOVES this one, it's great in the summer with margarita's, and can easily be doubled for parties. I recently retried this recipe as I wrote it the first time and noticed something was a little off, so I edited it, I think this works better! Thanks for the feedback!

    This recipe worked out quite well with only a few alterations (red pepper instead of green, double the lime juice and half the onion powder). I can't say this recipe was special enough for "company food," but it was still quite pleasant. Nice mid-week meal. I only ended up using 1/4 cup of the chicken broth. Made for Spring PAC 2009

    I had a couple small problems with this recipe. It could be just my personal taste, but the seasonings seemed kind of off. I know I will definately make this again, but I think when I do, instead of garlic salt, I will use fresh minced garlic, and probably skip the onion powder alltogether. Also I will skip the bouillon granules, and also skip adding the water. Eliminating that would eliminate the need to thicken the sauce with cornstarch slurry, and I think the bouillon granules made the tomato sauce too salty. Also, I wanted to taste the tequila in the sauce and after using 4 tablespoons of tequila, I still couldn't taste it, so I added "one glug" more of tequila. Really its a wonderful recipe, just for our own personal tastes, I would only change a few small details.
