Bang Bang Chicken Pasta

Ingredients

For the chicken and pasta:

  • 12 oz spaghetti noodles
  • 3/4 lb chicken breasts boneless, skinless and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 - 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the sauce:

  • 2/3 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Drain and keep warm.
  • Over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet.
  • Season chicken with salt and pepper. When hot, add the chicken and brown on all sides. Don't crowd the chicken - cook in batches, if necessary.
  • When chicken is just about done, add the garlic and let it cook for about 30 seconds - until you smell the aroma of it. Turn heat to low. Toss the spaghetti noodles in with the chicken and garlic.
  • While chicken is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the sauce and mix with a whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust as needed. Add more sriacha if you need too.
  • Pour about 2/3 of the sauce into the hot chicken and pasta, tossing to combine.
  • Warm the remaining sauce in the microwave and use to top each serving of chicken and pasta.
