Garlic Chicken pasta

I like to come up with new recipes and I’m so happy when my creation is a success, but I feel happier when I share it with you guys. However, there are times when I use leftovers to create another humble dish, and today is one of those days. Garlic Chicken Pasta was put together using leftover grilled chicken!

Making Garlic Chicken Pasta.

For this recipe, grilled, boiled, or barbecued chicken works the best. You can use any type of pasta you wish but keep the rest of the ingredients the same.

Garlic Chicken Pasta has a mild flavor because I didn’t want to kill the flavor of the grilled chicken by adding more spices.

Remember that Garlic Chicken Pasta was made from leftover, so you can be creative and after making this dish, add or omit ingredients to your liking.

Always add the cheese at the end, this way you will get a creamy texture and it will spread better.

      You can use vegetable stock instead, it will bring more flavor to the dish but you can leave it out if you wish.
