Corkscrew chicken is one of the recipes that I have in my dinner binder. It is simple to make and great for those evenings when life just doesn't slow down. It is also food storage friendly because all the ingredients could be shelf stable. I use raw chicken when I use this recipe in my daily cooking, but in an emergency situation I would definitely use my canned chicken.
These are a few of the ingredients that are needed and they are all things that you can have on hand for this recipe. The garlic could easily be garlic powder or garlic flakes. I cook all my chicken and cube it before freezing it so I can make dinner quickly.
American Beauty Quick Cook pasta is a food storage must have for every pantry. Once the water is boiling the pasta only takes 3 minutes to cook. This will save a lot of fuel if you were cooking on a propane stove or using charcoal.
After the pasta is cooked I use the same pan to saute the onion, garlic and also to warm the chicken.
I then add the sauce and broth to warm up and dinner is ready!!
4 chicken breasts cubed
1 onion chopped (1 T dried onion, rehydrated)
3 T oil
1 garlic clove
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 C chicken broth
2 C corkscrew pasta
In a large pan cook the pasta according to directions on the box. Drain. Using the same pot add the oil and saute the chicken, onion, and garlic until chicken is no longer pink. Add the broth, noodles, and sauce and heat through. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
