Fire-Breathing Dragon Pasta
1 Yellow Onion, diced
Olive oil, for sauting
6 cloves Garlic, minced
3 tablespoons Chipotles in Adobo Sauce, seeds removed, chopped + 1 of
1 pound boneless, skinless, Chicken Breasts, cut into large cubes
2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
3 cups good Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon Red Pepper flakes
1/2 pound medium-sized Shrimp, cleaned with tails off
1 cup Whole Milk or Heavy Cream
1 cup Sour Cream
Parmesan, fresh grated, for serving
Saute onion in two tablespoons Olive oil in a large, deep-sided skillet or a medium sized saucepan until tender and translucent, season with salt and pepper. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add the chipotles, chicken pieces, and Italian seasonings. Season with more salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat turning chicken to sear on all sides.
Serve over pasta(remove the chiles when draining) with fresh Parmesan cheese.
My inspiration for this super spicy dish was "Fra Diavolo" an Italian dish meaning "Brother Devil" that is traditionally made with tomato sauce spiked with red pepper flakes and seafood, usually shrimp.
