Butter Chicken Pasta ~ @SummerFresh Sauces @foodbloggersCA


Remember the post where I said I was trying out the new Summer Fresh Sauces and trying to come up with some great new recipes to make with those sauces? The Thai Beef Curry was a hit, and the next recipe equally as impressive!

I'm a lover of Butter Chicken. I knew I was going to love the Summer Fresh Butter Chicken sauce. The only thing was, Little One wanted noodles! Remembering how much my 4 year old loved Food Network Canada's Recipe to Riches winner,  Rick Matharu's Butter Chicken Lasagna, I figured her request for spaghettini and Butter Chicken would be an interesting combination.

It was SO good!

Ingredients:
1/2 a red pepper, diced
1/2 a green pepper, diced
1 c shredded zucchini
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes
1 container of Summer Fresh Butter Chicken Sauce
a drizzle of oil to cook chicken
Pasta of your choice. I used spaghettini

Instructions:
In a heated pan, drizzle a little oil and cook chicken.
* Add veggies and cook.
Add Summer Fresh Butter Chicken Sauce and mix.
Cook pasta as per instructions on box/bag.
Drain pasta.
Serve Butter Chicken on top of pasta with a delicious salad!

* As a farmer's wife, I always have veggies from our farm in our vegetable freezer that I can use during the Winter. We harvest the veg during harvesting time and I freeze them for Winter use. You don't have to add any veg to this recipe, but I love adding lots of vegetables to our meals. Plus, the colours are beautiful!

Because I've been learning to become more frugal, I have learned how to feed my family with a single portion of meat! I can feed my family of three with a single chicken breast. Cut it up, cook it, and add lots of vegetables! I do this with all meats. I can feed our family on a single steak!



Rich, creamy, buttery, flavourful goodness. For more info on Summer Fresh Butter Chicken, visit the website here.


Little One absolutely loved "her" creation! *ahem* Inspired by Rick Matharu's Butter Chicken Lasagna, of course! Gotta love a 4 year old who loves Food Network Canada! Maybe she'll be a future Food Bloggers of Canada member someday!
The funny thing is that she ate all the Butter Chicken first and pasta last! The kid loves her Butter Chicken!

Disclosure -  I was given the complete line of Summer Fresh Sauces and a non-stick Wok in order for me to come up with some exciting recipes and try out the new sauces. All the thoughts and opinions on this blog are honest and my own.

Thanks! We're really enjoying the Summer Fresh sauces! Mmmm! They make me want to cook all the time! LOL!

I checked the ingredients. There isn't any MSG listed on the package, however there is no symbol or writing that says "NO MSG".

Tammy
You know you've always got an open invitation for a meal at our farm! Give me a little notice and come on over! ;) Seriously, we need another chance to get together! I remember you and me and that plate of calamari that we pretty much polished off between the two of us! LOL!
