The BEST Spicy Chicken Pasta Recipe!

Yep, you heard it here first 😂 Chicken, spice and pasta is one of the most delicious combos of all time. It’s also mainly responsible for 90% of my food comas. Delicious food comas none the less.

This recipe is actually a recent obsession of mine and quite frankly I can’t get enough of it. Here’s why I think you’ll love it as much as I do:

  • Flavoursome – This pasta is more than just spicy, it’s got a gorgeous complex flavour.
  • Creamy/Tomatoey – You should never have to choose between a tomato pasta or a creamy pasta, this is the best of both worlds and it works SO well!
  • Date Night Dinner – This recipe is based on 2 servings, perfect for a cosy night in. It’s easily doubled for a family!

It’s also easy and relatively quick to make! Follow me…

Spicy Chicken Breast

The spicy chicken is the heart and soul of this dish, so it’s important to make it shine. Nothing worse than bland chewy chicken in any context, let alone in your pasta 😩

Flavour

To ensure it’s bursting with flavour, we’ll first coat it in a mix of olive oil, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and s&p. This give the chicken itself a nice kick of spice and a gentle wiff of smokiness too.

Tenderness

Equally as important. Here some tips to avoid chewy chicken:

  • Bring the chicken to room temp before you fry it (cold chicken seizes up).
  • Butterfly to make two thinner breasts (cooks quicker and more evenly).
  • Allow to rest after cooking (retains more juices)
  • Slice at an angle and against the natural grain of the chicken (soft chicken strips instead of large and chewy)

How to make Spicy Chicken Breast (quick summary)

  1. Take one chicken breast.
  2. Butterfly.
  3. Add spicy marinade.
  4. Rub into meat.
  5. Fry until nicely charred.
  6. Flip, fry then remove.

Creamy Spicy Chicken Pasta

Cream and spice is such an underrated combo, especially in this context. The cream not only adds richness, but also helps the spice not get too all up in your face.

How to make Spicy Creamy Chicken Pasta (quick summary)

  1. Fry off onion, garlic and chilli flakes in butter.
  2. Add sun dried tomatoes, then reduce down white wine.
  3. Fry tomato puree.
  4. Deglaze with chicken stock, then pour in cream.
  5. Add pasta.
  6. Toss through parmesan, parsley and chicken.
Top Tip – It’s important to fry and caramelize the tomato puree. It completely transforms the flavour and adds a nice sweetness to the sauce.
White Wine – Firstly, make sure it’s a dry wine, not sweet. It’s also important reduce it right down to burn off the alcohol. The wine will cut through the richness of the sauce, but if for whatever reason you don’t want to use it, just sub more stock.

How Spicy is ‘Spicy’?

It’s a really tricky one to judge as everyone’s spice thresholds are different. It’s definitely spicy, the kind that makes your lips tingle, but not so overpowering you can’t taste the other flavours. For those of you who like spice I’d say it’s a medium spice. If you’re at all wary just reduce the amount of chilli flakes and adjust at the end.

What to serve with Spicy Chicken Pasta?

Garlic Bread is always a winner with pasta. If you want to take it one step further then check out my Cheesy Pesto Garlic Bread and Caprese Pull Apart Bread!

Cost per serving: Β£5 / $6.50

Equipment:

  • Large Pan & Wooden Spoon
  • Large Pot & Pasta Tongs
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board
  • Fine Cheese Grater
  • Small Pot/Bowl (for chicken marinade)

Ingredients (check list):

Chicken

  • 1x 9oz/250g Chicken Breast, brought close to room temp
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Pasta

  • 7oz / 200g Linguine (or other long cut pasta)
  • 2/3 cup / 160ml Heavy/Double Cream
  • 1/3 cup / 80ml Chicken Stock
  • 1/4 cup / 60ml Dry White Wine (see notes)
  • 1oz / 30g Parmesan, finely grated
  • 6x Sun Dried Tomatoes, finely diced (~2oz/60g)
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Puree (tomato paste in US)
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tbsp finely diced Fresh Parsley
  • 1 small Onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp finely diced Garlic (approx 1 large clove)
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Instructions:

  • In a small bowl, combine 2 tsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika & cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp salt & black pepper.
  • Butterfly the chicken breast right the way through to make 2 even-sized breasts. Coat in the spicy marinade.
  • Place in a large pan over medium-high heat and fry for a few minutes on each side, or until lightly charred and just cooked through the centre (depending on thickness may take more or less time). Place to one side and when ready, slice into thin strips, ensuring you slice against the natural grain of the chicken and at a slight angle.
  • Turn the heat down to medium and melt in 1 tbsp butter, scraping off any flavour in the pan with your wooden spoon. Add the onion and fry until it begins to soften and pick up colour. Add 1 tsp garlic and fry for another minute longer, then add 1/2 tsp chilli flakes. Fry for 1 minute, then add sun-dried tomatoes. Fry for another minute just to soften them, then pour in 1/4cup/60ml dry white wine. Allow the wine to completely reduce (important to burn off the alcohol, should take 3-4 minutes or so).
  • Meanwhile, add 7oz/200g pasta to salted boiling water and cook until al dente.
  • Add 2 tbsp tomato puree to the pan. Fry for 2 minutes (important to sweeten the taste) then deglaze the pan with 1/3cup/80ml chicken stock. Pour in 2/3cup/160ml heavy/double cream and season to taste with salt & pepper. Bring to a gentle simmer then lower the heat.
  • Use tongs to transfer the cooked pasta straight from the pot into the pan and toss to combine. Add 1oz/30g freshly grated parmesan, 1 tbsp fresh parsley and the chicken strips (alongside any resting juices). Continue tossing, adding leftover starchy pasta water from the pot to thin out the sauce as needed.

Quick 1 min demo!

Notes:

a) How spicy is 'spicy'? - It's really difficult to measure this, as it's so subjective. It's got a definite kick, the kind that makes your tongue tingle. The heat is definitely there, but it doesn't overpower the other flavours. If you like spice, I'd put this at a medium. But again, very difficult to say. If you're at all wary, start off with less chilli flakes and adjust at the end.
b) White Wine - Firstly, just make sure it's a dry wine, not sweet. Secondly, I do recommend adding it. It's not a lot, but it does add a nice background flavour and cuts through the richness of the sauce. The alcohol will burn off, but if for whatever reason you don't want to use it just sub with more chicken stock.Β 
c) Date Night Dinner - This recipe serves two portions. You can add a side if you'd like - I recommend either Roasted Garlic Bread or Cheese Pesto Garlic Bread! If you're feeding a family just use the slider to adjust the measurements (just consider starting off with less spice just in case!).
d) Calories - shared between two with no extra parmesan or sides.

    Tried this one tonight and the only down side I can comment on was that my noodles had a massive Fail (my fault of course) As a last-ditch effort I stirred the chicken into the sauce to keep it moist and warm and used my mandolin to make wide zoodles and boiled them up. Served the sauce/chicken over the drained zoodles. Unintentionally carb-free and the core of the deliciousness (the sauce and chicken) worked perfectly with it! Made the zucchini buttery and only thinned the sauce a tiny bit. But I think I could just eat the chicken/sauce straight it is so rich and flavorful and… I’m going to go get seconds now I just made myself hungry again lol!

    Wonderful recipe thanks Chris! We actually were forced to make it vegan and it was still superb. I hope you can forgive us but we roasted red peppers alongside our rubbery vegan β€˜chicken’ in the same spice rub and thought that worked well. One day, we might actually not have to distill all the fun out of it and make it non-vegan too and that is a day I shall look forward to with all my heart. Tragically, my young daughter has gently forced this way of life upon me, so I may have to wait until the sweet release of her finally leaving home to really enjoy the full potential of the dish. Until then, I have my memories of my non-vegan life to conjure up what this might have tasted like. Exquisite.

    They all asked for the link to this page, which I’ve sent. Will become a staple go-to dish. I added some parmesan to the dish before serving too. I also like the suggestions from others in the chat to add spinach or roasted red peppers.

    Delicious! Easy to adapt. As some other folks noted, I used jarred roasted red peppers and added spinach. I used left over chicken so added the spices as I was sauteing the onions and adding the paste, had no wine used a bit of red and cooked it down, used milk blah blah, the garlic bread sopped it up! Wholly run on sentence. It’s forgiving. Our son who is a BIG eater but not a pasta lover gave it a big ‘delish’. It’s a winner and a keeper!

    Loved this. I did make a few changes. I didn’t make the paste. I diced my chicken, coated it with the spices, which I doubled. Then sautΓ©ed in olive oil. Followed the recipe as written from there. I inadvertently got roasted red peppers instead of sun dried tomatoes. Still very tasty. I also added a few big handfuls of spinach. Used rigatoni instead of linguine.

    This is so unbelievably delicious. I didn’t use the wine because I’m pregnant and while I know the alcohol mostly cooks away I didn’t want to risk it, but it was still amazing and is now one of my favourite pastas.
    Will definitely be trying it with the wine as soon as I can, and will definitely be making it a regular meal in our house!

    With an Italian mother I have a few pasta recipes to fall back on! My son came across this at uni and we have been eating it ever since, it is quite literally one of the best, most delicious, pasta recipes that I have eaten. We also make a veggie version leaving out the chicken. Can’t recommend this enough :). Thanks

    I loved this spicy chicken recipe. It was had just the right amount of spice. It wasn’t too hot or too mild. I made it for my husband and I. I will make it again without o doubt. Next time the only thing I would do differently would be to add a little less cream (my personal taste). It was delicious. I can see this becoming a favourite of ours. Thank you for the recipe.

    I made this tonight for me and my boyfriend in Cardiff and it was a real winner. I used single cream, and added spinach to the water before the pasta and dropped parsley as we are not fans. Also substituted green parts of spring onion instead of onion to be low FODMAP, and used a fresh red chili that was growing on our patio instead of chili flakes. Anyway we lived it and will definitely cook it again. I really appreciated how Chris described the steps and why to cook things in certain ways. The chicken certainly turned out super tender, juicy and delicious.

    Omg so this is one of my fave recipes ever and tonight I substituted the chicken for London broil and dear God…just when I thought the recipe couldn’t get any more delicious. I highly recommend to anyone who likes steak to put their fave cut in there instead of chicken. Keep everything else the same
    Just as amazing as chicken…only different.

        No, thank YOU for this recipe!

        I do have one question!
        Sometimes right at the end when i put the heavy cream in, it ends up being an oily sauce rather than creamy. πŸ™ What can I do to keep it creamy? Im having a hard time figuring out the rhyme or reason of when it happens and im stumped! Your help would be greatly appreciated!

          Toss in some of the starchy water your pasta is cooked in. The starch molecules help bind together the fats and can help the sauce turn creamy again. Hope this helps! C.x

    Hi, so I’ve tried this recipe before and absolutely loved it! I unfortunately don’t have sundried tomatoes this time around and a common substitute for those are usually tomato puree. So I wasn’t sure if I should just omit that step or should I sub the tomato puree at the sundried step and also put the tomato puree when it’s called for?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just wanted to let you know that I tried your recipe today. I didn’t know what to make for lunch but this looked tasty and easy. I did not have heavy cream so I subbed with cashew cream (made it myself) and it came out absolutely perfectly. I did not use butter either but it was still flavorful. This recipe will make it into our rotation. Thank you.

    It wasn’t spicy enough for me (I just have a really high spice tolerance), but I loved this dish because the sauce was SUPER flavorful!!

      So glad you loved the recipe! I guess the only worse than it not being spicy enough is it being too spicy, so feel free to ramp it up next time! Thanks so much for popping back for a review πŸ™‚ Chris.x

    Can I use sour cream as I don’t have double cream

      Hi Shelagh! Unfortunately I think sour cream would turn the sauce too sour, especially with the wine and tomatoes. Double cream is definitely best suited here. Gives it a much richer flavour!

        What can I substitute for the sun dried tomatoes? I can only find canned sun dried tomatoes at my grocery store.

          Canned sun dried tomatoes should be fine, just drain off the liquid. That’s assuming it’s a can of actual tomatoes/tomato slices not some sort of puree?

    Oh my goodness! This is a divine winner chicken dinner!! I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit with everyone. We loved the spicy, but sweet smokiness of the chili in the wonderful creamy sun dried tomato sauce. This is absolutely a winner. Thanks for sharing we truly loved it and will definitely make it again.

      Can I use salad tomatoes or sub with something. I don’t have sun dried? Or would I just miss them out ?
