Without any further ado, let’s check out the ingredients list:
– 1 lb gluten-free chicken pasta

– 1 tsp minced garlic
– ¾ cup condensed chicken broth
Red pepper sauce (as per your preference)

Now that we’ve got our ingredients ready, let’s move on to cooking:

Step 1:

Begin by boiling a pot of salted water over high heat. Once boiling, add the gluten-free pasta and cook for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or as per the directions mentioned on the packaging until it’s al dente. Once done, drain and set aside.

Step 2:

While your pasta is cooking, season thinly sliced chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic to the skillet and sauté till it becomes light golden brown. Then add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook until golden brown for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Step 4:

Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the skillet and keep it aside. Add sliced red and green bell peppers to the skillet along with additional olive oil if required. Sauté them for about 2 to 3 minutes or until they start getting tender.

Step 5:

To the same skillet, add condensed chicken broth and red pepper sauce as per your preference. Allow it to simmer until the chicken broth has almost turned into a sauce, approximately for 2 to 4 minutes.

Step 6:

To the skillet, add boiled gluten-free pasta, cooked sliced chicken breasts and toss everything together. Sauté everything on medium-high heat for about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly until everything is well combined.

Step 7:

Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese before serving. This delicious flavorful gluten-free Chicken With Peppers and Pasta with the smoky roasted red pepper sauce can be served alone or paired with steamed vegetables or a light salad.

– Chicken Fajita Pasta: Add some Tex-Mex flavor by seasoning the chicken breast in cumin, chili powder, and paprika before cooking. Toss in some sautéed onions and sliced bell peppers for a colorful and delicious twist.

Listen up, my fellow chefs-in-training, this Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating section is crucial if you want to make the most of your Chicken with Peppers and Pasta (Gluten-Free) Recipe. Trust me, you don’t want all your hard work to go down the drain now, do you?

Firstly, let’s address the make-ahead factor. Yes, it’s possible to prepare this dish in advance and keep it in the fridge for a day or two. However, I must warn you that the pasta might soak up some of the sauce and get a little mushy. To prevent that from happening, I suggest you undercook the pasta by a minute or two before storing it in an airtight container. Don’t forget to also store the chicken and peppers separately from the pasta.

Now let’s talk about storing. How long can you keep this dish in the fridge for? Well, ideally you should consume it within three days. Just make sure that you store it properly and reheat it thoroughly before consuming.

When it comes to reheating this dish, there are two options: stovetop or microwave. If you’re opting for the stovetop method, use a pan with a lid and add a splash of chicken broth to prevent the pasta from drying out. Cook on low heat until heated through.

If you prefer the microwave method, transfer your Chicken with Peppers and Pasta into a microwave-safe bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap or a microwave lid and make sure to leave a small opening for steam to escape. Microwave on high heat for 2-3 minutes until heated through.

Pro Tip: If you find that your pasta has become dry after reheating, simply add some olive oil or chicken broth to bring back its original texture.

There you have it folks! Follow these tips for making ahead, storing and reheating your Chicken with Peppers and Pasta dish, and you’ll be able to enjoy its delicious, flavorful goodness for days to come.

6. Finally, a gluten-free pasta dish that tastes amazing!

Let me share with you some tips that will ensure perfect results for your Chicken with Peppers and Pasta recipe. These tips will help you achieve the right balance of flavors and textures in every bite. So, let’s dive in:

1. Add Parmesan Cheese for extra flavor: One easy way to elevate the taste of this gluten-free pasta is by adding some grated Parmesan cheese on top. The cheese adds a nutty, salty flavor that goes perfectly with the sweet and smoky roasted red pepper sauce.

2. Don’t overcook the chicken: Since boneless, skinless chicken breasts tend to dry out quickly, it’s important not to overcook them. Make sure to cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C) to ensure safe consumption.

3. Adjust the spiciness level: If you prefer your food spicier, feel free to add more cracked black pepper or even a dash of hot sauce to your Chicken with Peppers and Pasta recipe. Alternatively, you can reduce or eliminate the spicy ingredients if you’re sensitive to heat.

4. Mix up the peppers: You can use any color bell peppers in this recipe, but using a mix of green, red or yellow bell peppers adds variety while maintaining color harmony on your plate. For an even bolder flavor, try substituting one of the bell peppers for a poblano pepper or two.

5. Use gluten-free pasta shapes that hold sauce well: Penne pasta or rigatoni are good options because they have ridges that naturally catch and hold onto sauce. Spinach pasta can also work well in this recipe if you’re looking for a healthier option than regular wheat flour pasta.

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create deliciously flavorful gluten-free pasta topped with sweet and smoky roasted red pepper sauce and juicy chicken strips every time you cook this recipe. Enjoy!
