Ingredients

  • 1 24 oz jar of Victoria’s Vodka Sauce
  • 1 and ½ lbs chicken breast, diced into pieces
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 12 oz penne pasta
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely diced
  • Red pepper flakes, Fresh parmesan cheese and fresh herbs to garnish (if desired)

Instructions

  1. Finely dice ½ of a medium onion. Mince 2 cloves garlic. Dice chicken into bite size pieces. Set aside.

  2. Get the pasta water boiling in a small pot. Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt to the water! Once that is boiling, add in the pasta and cook following the box’s instructions for al dente pasta.

  3. To a large deep saucepan, add 1 tsp of olive oil. Once hot, add in the onion with a pinch of salt. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened. Add in the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.

  4. Add chicken along with a large pinch of salt to season the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway until cooked through. 

  5. By now, the pasta should be about done. Once it’s fully cooked, drain it and set it aside.

  6. Once chicken is done, add in the full jar of pasta sauce to the pan and combine with the chicken. Let the sauce heat up. 

  7. Once the sauce is warmed, add the pasta directly into the skillet and stir in to combine - making sure that each noodle is coated by the sauce! 

  8. Load it up into bowls and serve! Eat while hot.

  9. Garnish with parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes and fresh herbs if desired. Serve with crusty bread. Enjoy!
