I'm always searching for new recipes and when I came across this one, it just looked so yummy!  I've had it on the menu for a week or two now, and never got around to making it, but Sunday, I decided it was time.

And DANG! was I happy I made it!  It is so good!!

I made a few adjustments and this is what I came up with.

Sauteed Chicken & Spaghetti

What you need:

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
  • cooking spray
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3/4 to 1 cup chunky marinara sauce
  • 8 oz. spaghetti
  • 1/2 tbsp. Knorr Chicken Bouillon

How to make it:

  1. Bring water to boil in large sauce pan.  Add chicken bouillon and spaghetti and cook as directed.
  2. While spaghetti is cooking, season chicken with salt, pepper, dried basil and oregano in large bowl.
  3. Heat skillet on high heat.  When hot, spray with cooking spray.
  4. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
  5. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  6. Add olive oil to pan (still on high heat).  Add garlic and saute until light brown.
  7. Add marinara and mix well with garlic.  Saute for about 3-4 minutes.
  8. When spaghetti is cooked, drain, reserving a bit of the water before draining.
  9. Add spaghetti to skillet and toss well.  If it seems a bit dry, add some of the water you reserved.
  10. Add chicken and mix well.  Serve.

    THE Stephanie
    I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
