Sanora Chicken Pasta

Ruby Tuesdays has an excellent pasta called Sanora chicken pasta. This recipe is almost the exact same version if not better. Also you get a great looking dinner with this recipe with blushing tomatoes and Spring green onions. What more could one ask for? The only thing anyone will ask for is more. 4 chicken breast, boneless and skinless 250 grams cellentani pasta, cooked per package directions 1/2 cup tomatoes, diced 2 scallions, sliced top to bottom 1/2 cup cilantro, fresh cheese sauce: 6 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 cup hot water 1 tablespoon chicken stock 1 cup heavy cream salt to taste 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce or harissa 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup salsa 3/4 cup sour cream spicy black beans: 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed 3 tablespoons bbq sauce 1. In a nonstick 9-inch skillet on medium heat spray with cooking oil then add chicken breast. Cook fully on each side until no longer pink. Cut into small long strips and sit aside. In a 2-quart saucepan on medium heat add black beans and bbq sauce, stir and cook for 5 minutes. Sit aside. 2. In a saute pan on medium heat add butter, garlic and onions, cook until tender.

    Hi Noor, I'm a spanish girl and I would like to say you that all the dishes you called Spanish are not from Spain. Those dishes are from Sud American contries like Mexic or Argentina... In Spain we cook "paella" make with rice and seafood, "tortilla de patatas" (eggs with potatoes), etc. If you would like learn about our gastronomy, you can visit Karlos Arguiñano website, where you can find the real dishes of Spain
    I love arabian cooking and with your blog I've learn more about it.

  8. Esther thanks so much for the post. I am just starting to learn more about Spain and all your wonder dishes. I will go to that site and try to see what I can find. I love trying new things so much. Thanks for stopping by :)
