Hello everyone! I’m back for another recipe I remade from Buzzfeed’s Tasty videos. I was encouraged to cook once again after my cousin posted her cooking. I am not quite a cook, if you all have noticed. Haha. But I do try my best. Thankfully at this age, you can simply search, click and look on the internet of the various recipes to follow from both simple to complicated ones. Of course, like any beginning cook, I start with the simple ones.
I chose the One Pot Chicken Fajita. All because I love chicken, I love fajitas, I love pasta and I love easy one pot recipes! Haha, it’s like 4 birds in one stone! Now I made that up. But anyway here is the recipe and some alterations I made. I will also post at the end the original video from Buzzfeed.
One Pot Chicken Fajita Pasta
3-5 tbsp of olive oil
3 Chicken breast sliced
3 bell peppers (any color of choice) diced
1 whole white onion diced
500g Penne Pasta or any pasta of choice
5-6 cups of whole fresh milk
1 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese
1-2 tbsp of chopped parsley (optional)
1-2 tsp of paprika
1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper
1-2 tsp of cumin
1-2 tbsp of all purpose cream (for creaminess but this is optional)
Dash of salt and pepper for seasoning
In a deep non stick casserole, heat your oil and cook chicken until there is no pink seen. Then remove chicken and set aside. Cook bell peppers and onions until translucent. Put back the chicken and add the salt, pepper, paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper. Stir well until all is coated.
Pour the whole milk and the penne pasta. Stir so the pasta noodles won’t stick. Cover for about 8-10 minutes to cook the pasta and until the sauce is reduced and thickened. Add the all purpose cream for extra creaminess, then add the cup of grated cheese until melted. Serve and garnish with the remaining half cup of grated cheese and parsley.
Here is my IG Post of it:
Now, since it was my first to cook pasta in one pot. I did have some mishaps and ended with the pasta half-cooked but still edible. I didn’t cover it in the first place which made it that way. However, I am glad that my family and boyfriend enjoyed my cooking. Though they did mention it was a bit spicy. Well, we love spicy still and I am pretty sure this won’t be my last cooking. I do hope y’all give this a try!
Merci beaucoup et á bientôt!
