Use your favorite pasta for this recipe.
Feel free to add your favorite vegetables to the dish. Like corn, zucchini, eggplants, bell peppers or olives.
Don't cook chicken for too long, just simmer for couple minutes. You don't want to dry it out!
If all you have is leftover thighs or drumsticks, just take all the meat off the bone, chop it and use as directed in the recipe. Take the skin off too.
