Garlic Chicken Pasta

  • 1 Tomato
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 small bag of pasta (any kind)
  • 1 cup of Olive Oil
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 TBS McCormick’s Garlic and Herb Seasoning
  • 1 chicken breast (cut in small pieces)

Poor the 1 cup of Olive Oil in pan; place on Medium Heat. Cut up chicken, tomato and bell pepper in small pieces. Add seasoning and mince garlic; mix everything together until well covered. Place mix into hot oil and cover. Occasionally stir until chicken and oil is now a liquid form (more watery than oil).

Poor mixture in already cook pasta. You can make the pasta first and let it sit while you make chicken. Mix everything together and serve. You can add half an jalapeno for extra spice if you like!

NOTE: Keep remaining pasta in the fridge and eat cold! Very delish as well!
