Chicken Enchilada Pasta

Chicken Enchilada Pasta - lime chipotle marinated chicken, grilled and served over a quick homemade alfredo enchilada pasta. SO delicious!  Everyone raves about this grilled chicken and pasta dish!

This was the best thing we ate last weekend.  It was amazing!  The chicken was good on its own, but was over the top delicious with the pasta.

I marinated the chicken in a chipotle and greek yogurt mixture.  The chicken was very tender and juicy, and packed a ton of flavor without being spicy.  This marinade would go well with my Pollo Loco recipe as well.  The sauce is a combination of enchilada sauce and Alfredo sauce.  I made my own enchilada sauce, but you can substitute a cup of canned sauce if you don’t want to make your own.  We finished the dish off with some green onions and tomatoes.  We both gave this two thumbs up!  This will be a staple at our house!

  2. Unknown – Caldo de Tomate is a tomato/chicken bouillon. It is in the mexican section at the grocery store or Wal-Mart.

  4. Gerontologist – you can substitute sour cream, but you can't taste the Greek yogurt. It is great to tenderize the chicken. I don't like Greek yogurt either, but I love this chicken.

  5. I just recently discovered your blog and I must admit, everything you post looks absolutely delicous. Thanks for sharing another tasty looking recipe!

  6. This looks delicious but is there something else I could substitute for the Greek Yogurt? My husband and I neither one like yogurt. Perhaps sour cream instead?

    1. Greek yogurt is not tart like other yogurts. It is fabulous as a marinade which makes chicken more moist and tender. You probably won't notice the taste.
