Delicious Chicken & Garlic Pasta

I am one super picky eater. I love eating small portions but full of varieties. Blend food is just not me! My grilled seasoned chicken patties are fun for all ages! My friends 2 year old daughter loves it with the side of my simple garlic pasta and she barely touches food!

So we all know seasoning is a major key! Here are the seasonings I used, you can leave out whatever you do not want to use!

Seasonings Used:IMG_3110.JPG

  • Lemon Pepper: 1 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cajun Seasoning: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Hamburger Seasoning: (Optional) 1/4 teaspoon
  • Chicken Fajita Seasoning/ Adams Fajita Seasoning: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Garlic Powder: 1/4 teaspoon
  • Onion Powder: 1/4 teaspoon
  • Paprika: 1/4 teaspoon
  • Parmesan Cheese: 2 packets from Papa Johns lol or more like 1 tablespoon šŸ™‚

Mix all these seasonings together and set it aside.

Chicken Prep: (takes about 10-20 minutes)

  1. Cold 1/2 lb Ground Chicken (DO NOT RINSE)
  2. Get a rectangle piece of wax paper on one of the edges put 1 teaspoon of margarine
  3. Rub some margarine on both hands, grab some meat and create balls, then flatten them in your hands, place them on the wax paper, repeat until no meat remains.
  4. If any extra margarine dab it on the meat patties. (Note: I do not make huge patties I make them about 2 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick)
  5. Now sprinkle your seasoning on all the patties on one side. Leave 1/2 of the seasoning for the other side.
  6. Warm up a pan with 1 tablespoon butter on medium high heat.
  7. Add the seasoned side patties onto the pan, now season the chicken that is not seasoned yet. (Make sure evenly coated)
  8. Let one side cook on medium high heat for about 4-5 minutes then flip the patties and cook an additional 4-5 minutes. If you want it to be a little crispy cook until it darkens.
  9. After both sides looked cooked to your desire optional garnish with onion slices and cook an additional one minute. Its Ready!

On the side with my chicken patties I love Buttery Corn: (cook time: 3 minutes)

  1. Can of sweet corn
  2. Drain corn and place it in a pan with melted butter ( 1 teaspoon)
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes on medium high heat, add salt and pepper to taste! I like using seasoned salt! Ready!

Also, I add my simple garlic pasta: (total cook time: 15 minutes)

  1. 1/2 packet of spaghetti broken in half, cooked in salted water, drained.
  2. Cut 3 cloves of garlic into thin slices
  3. Heat up 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, add the garlic slices, fry until a heavy scent of garlic travels, add crushed pepper (optional), before garlic burns transfer the garlic and oil mix to the pasta, add salt and pepper to taste (1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper or less is what I use), and 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese. Mix well. Ready to serve!
