Easy Chicken And Chorizo Pasta

Chicken and chorizo pasta is a flavorful and hearty dish that combines tender chicken pieces and spicy chorizo sausage with al dente pasta in a rich tomato-based vodka sauce.


- Penne - Chicken breast - Spanish chorizo - Vodka - Tomato paste - Heavy cream

The smoky and savory flavors of the chorizo perfectly complement the succulent chicken, resulting in a delicious and satisfying meal.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water, then drain and set aside.


In a large skillet, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken breast and cook until browned and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.


In the same skillet, add the Spanish chorizo and sauté until it releases its flavorful oils and becomes slightly crispy. Remove the chorizo and set it aside on the same plate as the chicken.


In the same skillet, add the shallot and red bell pepper and sauté until the vegetables are softened, then add the minced garlic and sauté for another minute.


Stir in the tomato paste and cook for a minute to develop its flavors. Deglaze the skillet with the vodka (if using), scraping any browned bits from the bottom.
