Garlic Chicken Pasta Recipe

Italian Chicken Recipe

If you love garlic, then this is the garlic chicken pasta recipe for you! It is an authentic Michele Romano Italian Pasta recipe. Simple to make and not extremely time consuming. Garlic is the main focus and flavor used in creating this incredibly satisfying garlic chicken pasta recipe.

Prepare the chicken ahead of time in your skillet by marinating in olive oil and fresh garlic. Meanwhile (back at the ranch), simply boil your pasta until al dente. Quickly toss pasta into zesty, aromatic garlic sauce .

This garlic chicken pasta recipe will compliment any type of pasta you choose to use. I used ancient grains non GMO spaghettini mixed with catelli smart spaghettini. Remember you can be creative with your choice of pastas, such as whole wheat, gluten free, brown rice pasta, Quinoa and organic pastas as well.


I served this pasta dish with a simple homemade Caesar salad. It was the perfect combination, like eating a garlic Caesar, chicken pasta salad! So delicious!!

Note: If available to you, I like to use enamel pots and fry pans for making my sauces. Most Italians swear by them for making the best tasting sauces. In my experience, I have found it to be true!
