Kiss same-ol’ pasta goodbye. This Garlic Chicken Rigatoni dish will blow your standard spaghetti-with-red-sauce routine right out of the water. That’s because it’s loaded with Mediterranean-style ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, parsley, basil and red pepper flakes. The result? A flavor-packed pasta dish that doesn’t weigh you down.
The secret to the dish is in the preparation of ordinary boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Cut into 1-inch cubes and tossed in a mixture of garlic salt and flour, the chicken gets a delicious crust that also thickens up the sauce. The protein also fills you up, warding off the dreaded post-carb hunger surge.
