One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta

More than half of my life I have been pronouncing some serious food stuff the wrong way.

Like Jalalpenos or Jamalpenos (which are basically pronounced as Halapenios) I have been saying Fajita as Fajita instead of Faheeta.

Thanks to Hollywood I corrected a lot of my pronunciations because of movies, TV shows and stand-up comedies.

BUT English is not our first language yet we on social media make hell a lot of fun if anyone misspells a word or use wrong grammar or punctuation. ITNE KOI TUM LOG LORD MOUNTBATTEN KE BACHAY NAHI REHTAY

Today's recipe regardless of the pronunciation is very easy to make and not that bad in taste. Fajita is a way of cooking which belongs to the Mexican community. Infuse it with a pasta and you can get a whole different level of flavor. One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta is what i am going to show you all today. Everything in this recipe happens in ONE pot.


3 tablespoons oil

500 grams of chicken breast, sliced

1 red bell pepper, sliced

1 green bell pepper, sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, sliced

1 onion, sliced

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon red chili powder

1 tablespoon cumin powder

1 tablespoon garlic powder

5 cups of milk

1 pound penne pasta

1 cup chili cheese, shredded

First we heat up some oil in a pan.

Then we add the chicken and fry it. The chicken will release some water, let it dry and do not worry or you might end up having a nervous breakdown.

Let the water from the chicken dry and the chicken change it's color.

Take the chicken out of the pan.

Add the red, yellow, green bell peppers and onions to the pan. Fry until the onion gets translucent.

Add the cooked sliced chicken now.

Season the pan with salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin powder and garlic powder. Mix it well.

Add milk to the pan and turn the heat to medium low.

Add the penne pasta.

Let it cook for 8-10 minutes. Sometimes it will take 2 minutes more than that so keep stirring the pasta once or twice every minute to prevent it from sticking to the pan.

Take a fork and check your pasta as if it is done or needs more. If your milk has dried up then add a little water and let it simmer until the pasta is done. SEE everything has a solution.

Add the shredded cheese now and mix it well. One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta is ready to serve now.

Sprinkle some fresh chopped coriander on it and enjoy.
