  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine pasta and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, mix together 1/4 cup flour, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken pieces and cook until browned on the outside and no longer pink inside. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Add the bell pepper, onion, garlic and jalapeno pepper to the skillet; cook and stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, Worcestershire sauce and milk. Bring to a simmer. Stir in 1 tablespoon of flour and simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce starts to thicken.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese until melted. Return chicken to the pan and stir to coat with sauce. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta.

i had to make some major modifications due to what i had on hand, coupled with the fact that my 2 year old would be eating it and she doesn't do well with spice. i didn't flour the chicken, i just seasoned it heavily with montreal steak seasoning, some onion powder, and a light sprinkling of red pepper flakes, and stir-fried the chicken. I doubled the sauce for a pound of angel hair and used two chicken breasts, and i think that ratio was perfect. the sauce was pretty thin but i actually enjoyed it that way, which is strange for me, as i usually like a creamier sauce, but this was great! i used a brick of colby jack cheese and it was the tiniest bit stringy, but that was probably my fault for shredding the cheese too thick. i also eliminated the jalapeno and doubled the garlic. the flavor was intense, the sauce was delicious, and somehow managed to coat the pasta very well even though it was thin. everyone in my family enjoyed this and i will definitely be making it again. yum!!!


If anything, this dish wasn't spicy enough for our tastes. I made the recipe with it's exact measurements & it came out okay. Everyone in the house ate it but I would definitely make some small changes next time I prepare it. I used 1 bell pepper and 1 onion & felt that it was too much for the amount of sauce that the recipe yields. So next time I will either cut the amount of those two vegetables in half, or double the liquid ingredients in the sauce. There was so much onion, it was hard to decipher what was onion and what was pasta. Maybe the ones I used were just too large. I did take the other reveiwer's advice and make sure all the veggies were chopped and ready to go prior to cooking the pasta and chicken. Overall, it was good, just going to doctor it up next time to suit our family's tastes. Thank you for providing a nice change of pace for dinner tonight!


The recipe was pretty good. You need to have all your chopped vegatables ready prior to starting the that the pasta and chicken don't get too cool! I will definitely make it again, will just be a little more prepared!
