Chicken Fajita Pasta

Do you love pasta recipes? Do you absolutely adore fajita recipes? Then why not put these two old recipe favorites together and make this Chicken Fajita Pasta recipe? That’s what Amanda did over at the “Kevin and Amanda” blog, and she’s never looked back – not even for a sec. This dish is just too darned delicious!One of the greatest specialties of this chicken pasta meal is the texture! The trick is to get the chicken just crispy enough (without burning it, of course!) so it will blend perfectly with the soft pasta. And it’s a really healthy dinner dish as well. Why? Because not only is it piled high with chicken and pasta, it’s got a ton of fresh yummy vegetables in it, too. Another highlight of this chicken fajita pasta recipe is the spice! There’s nothing better to eat on a cold day – it will warm you up pretty quick. And if it’s a hot day, no worries, it will cool you down by increasing your body temperature ever so slightly and making you perspire. Voila, instant cool-down! Pretty good for a hot, mouth-watering meal. A third bonus of this Mexican pasta dish is that it’s not only fast to make, it’s easy too. You can make a large quantity, as well, and freeze some of it, so it can feed your whole family for weeks to come. It’s also the perfect chicken casserole dish to take to a potluck, celebration, or large family gathering. It will feed a great number of people and it is a guaranteed crowd pleaser, for sure.
