Spicy Pesto Chicken and Pasta

A spicy chicken and pesto pasta dish that's easy to make more or less spicy depending on who is eating it. It is one of my favorites. Serve with additional grated Parmesan, if desired.

So easy! So delicious! It's great hot or cold, so fantastic when asked to 'bring a salad'. Gets fought over at every barbeque. The kids love it! Absolute winner of a dish.

Wow, LAGIRL, you have really outdone yourself! This dish is incredible! The only changes are I used spiral pasta, and romano cheese instead of parmesan. By the way, for those of you who substitute chili powder, it's not quite the same as the paste (though if you don't have/can't find the paste, it should work). It's thick and spicy, and really enhances the flavor for the chicken. I found mine in the produce section of Ultra Foods (I would assume it'd be in the same place as other major grocery stores. I had never heard of chili paste before until I accidentally stumbled upon it and realized what it was.) They are in squeeze tubes, near the fresh herbs. Look for it, because the paste makes all the difference! Wonderful, wonderful recipe! Hands down, a keeper!

I love anything with pesto and cheese so this was already a winner but adding vegetables (zucchini, mushrooms, red pepper, green pepper, onions), a bit of garlic and white wine was a huge plus to making it more nutritionally balanced and full flavoured...

I make this all the time! It's easy and tastes excellent. Couldn't find chili paste but chili powder works just as well!
