Step 1: Preparing the Ingredients and Supplies
3 Chicken Breasts cut up in cubes
A box of your favorite type of pasta. We used Barilla protein+ Spaghetti Since this meal isn’t very nutritious
1 Lemon, squeezed
2 minced garlic cloves
1 minced onion
2 cup of milk
4 tablespoons of flour
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of salted butter, cut in half into 2 sets of 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon of parsley
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
Step 2: Prepping for the Chicken
Before cooking the Chicken, we have to make the pasta. This is fairly easy. What you do is cook the whole box and follow the directions on the box. While the pasta is in the colander and draining, lower the heat on your stove and place the pan back on it. Put one tablespoon of butter in the pot. Once butter is melted, mince 1 onion and place that in that pot for 3 minutes. Next, cut 3 chickens in squares and place that in the pot, put a lid on the pot, and cook for 10 minutes and stir half way.
Step 3: Making the Sauce
Once the chicken is done cooking, take off the heat for a few minutes to cool down the pan. While cooling, check that the chicken is cooked, if not, put back on the heat. To start the sauce, add the rest of the butter and milk, stir, and then add the flour and stir. After that, add the pasta and cheese. Put the pot back on the stove and add the minced garlic. Stir until the cheese is melted.
Step 4: Seasoning and Serving
To Finnish off the dish, add the Lemon Juice, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Salt, and Pepper. Then stir. Add the parsley. This can be either dried or fresh cut. Serve the dish with Foccacia or Ciabatta bread.
