Expert Tips

To save time, chop the onion and bell pepper ahead of time and save in a container.

Directions

  • 1 Cover the chicken with the taco seasoning. Set aside.
  • 2 Cook the pasta following the package instructions.
  • 3 Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pot and fry the chicken. When it's cooked, remove from the pot and, in the same oil, cook the onion and garlic for 3 minutes. Fold in the peppers and cook for 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and chicken, cover, lower the temperature and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • 4 The pasta should be ready by now. Drain and return to the pot. When the veggies are soft and cooked through, pour them over the pasta. Add the lemon juice and chopped cilantro. Adjust the seasoning to taste and serve.
