Tips

cheesecake factory spicy chicken chipotle pasta is one of the most popular dishes in the world, but it can be improved with a few simple steps.

  • Make sure your pasta is fresh. If you’re using dried pasta, cook it in boiling water for a few minutes before adding the chicken and chipotle sauce. Don’t overcook it; this dish should be quick and easy to make!
  • Try using tortillas instead of noodles—they’re healthier and more delicious! You can also try making your own tortillas from scratch; just add some flour, salt, and water to a bowl and knead until smooth. Then roll out thin with a rolling pin (or cut into small circles with cookie cutters) before frying on each side for about 30 seconds per side at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until crisp yet tenders inside (this will take approximately 5 minutes total). Layer them on top of each other for extra crunchiness!
  • Use your favorite vegetables in this recipe! Some examples would be carrots, bell peppers, spinach leaves or even mushrooms if you’re feeling adventurous! You can also use frozen vegetables if they’re available where you live; just thaw them first, then drain them before adding them to the batter. This recipe works well with just about any vegetable you can think of! If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try using fresh herbs in this recipe as well!

Storage

We want you to be able to enjoy this Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta for as long as possible, so we’ve put together a few tips on how to store it.

  1. Make sure the pasta is completely cooled before storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  2. Do not refrigerate for more than 2 days—the pasta will lose its flavor and texture after 2 days (even if it still looks good).
  3. It’s best if you can eat the pasta within 24 hours of preparing it, but if you can’t, try freezing some! That way, you’ll have some on hand when you’re ready for it again!

Reheating

There are a few easy ways to reheat Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta.

The fastest way is to use the microwave. 

  1. Put your Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta in a microwave-safe dish and cover it with plastic wrap.
  2. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave.

Check the temperature of your dish with an instant-read thermometer if you’re not sure how long it should take, but most microwaves will beep at you when it’s done.

Another way is to use the oven or toaster oven. 

  1. Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place your Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta in an oven-safe dish and cover it with aluminum foil.
  3. Heat for 20 minutes or until warm throughout (about 5-10 minutes per pound).

You can also heat it directly in a saucepan over low heat on the stovetop for about 10 minutes or until hot throughout, stirring occasionally.

Health Benefits

  • This is a delicious dish that can serve as a great source of protein and fiber.
  • The pasta contains approximately 5 grams of protein per serving and is made from durum wheat semolina, which is a high-fiber grain. This makes it an excellent option for those who are looking for a healthy alternative to white pasta, which has been stripped of its nutrients during the refining process.
  • The chicken in Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta contains many essential vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, iron, zinc, selenium, and phosphorus. These nutrients help you maintain energy levels throughout the day while also supporting your immune system.
  • The chicken also contains niacin (B3). This vitamin helps regulate blood sugar levels, so you feel less hungry between meals while also helping your body use carbohydrates more efficiently, so they don’t get stored as fat cells in your body.
  • Niacin also supports healthy skin by reducing inflammation caused by acne breakouts or eczema flare-ups while fighting off free radicals that cause wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
  • Chicken is also a great source of folate, which helps prevent birth defects and can also reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer.
