Upgrade your usual dinner with this Adobo Pasta with Chicken. It's simple to make and is bursting with flavor. Dinner has never tasted this good!
Do you love pasta as much as I do?
Pasta is a staple in our home and we always love to have it with different ingredients and sauces. This time I made this delicious creamy adobo pasta with chicken and it was a hit in our home. Everyone loved it so much!
I made this spicy chicken pasta using Barilla Penne and, of course, I cooked it al dente. With a good pasta, fresh ingredients and delicious adobo sauce, this dish comes together in no time and tastes unique with an authentic flavor!
You can always add more veggies to this adobo pasta but I just love the simplicity of it because I like to taste layers and layers of heat the chipotle and adobo sauce bring to the dish.

Notes and tips to make this adobo pasta:
- Always cook your pasta al dente, it makes the dish perfect.
- For your sauce, add as much adobo sauce as you like. I added ¼ cup for 4 servings but of course, you can always add more.
- You can use artichokes instead of mushrooms if desired.
- Mix the pasta and sauce right before serving to avoid having very soft pasta.
- You can use cubed chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.

Great recipe and I'm going to try it, you might want to correct one typo though, it's al dente-not al dante.
Thank you Sally! Oops! I fixed the typo 🙂
I'm thinking the typo was an accidental literary reference to the poet Dante, who said "The Love [of great food] that moves the sun and the other stars."? 😉
