Hazelnut Chicken One Pot Pasta

Hazelnut Chicken One Pot Pasta - Hazelnut chicken one pot pasta recipe - an easy meal that is very adaptable and comes together in 30 minutes! Perfect for those busy nights! #30minutethursday

I finally have a recipe for you today that doesn’t involve baking.  Or snacking.  Or way too much sugar.  I do actually cook most nights too, but you’d never know from the last month of recipes I’ve brought you!

But it’s 30 Minute Thursday again today (seriously, where did the last month go?), so I have a dinner recipe for, um, I think the first time since the last 30 Minute Thursday.  On the plus side, there’s a whole list of other 30 minute meals along with it, so at least I’m bringing you some supper ideas even if I’m not the one making them!  Clearly I need to actually take pictures of the cooking as well as the baking a little more often.

This one pot pasta is absolutely delicious.  It’s one of those meals that I’ve made many, many times over the last 10 years, and we’ve loved it every time.  This is my variation of the original recipe that was in a cookbook I was given as a wedding gift.  So I’ve been making it for a while!

We still love it just as much as we did the first time I made it!  Although I don’t make it quite as spicy as I used to, what with the kids that don’t like spicy food and all.  For this dish it’s all good though – just throw more sriracha sauce on your own serving.  And everyone is happy.

Hazelnut Chicken One Pot Pasta
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: serves 4-6
 
Note: I make this all in one pot to save on dishes, and this amount of liquid was right for me, but different pastas (brand and type) cook differently so it may not be the exact right amount. You can always add more liquid if necessary if your pasta isn’t getting tender. You can also cook the noodles separately if you prefer, just follow the instructions as written, but decrease the milk and chicken broth to 1 cup each. When you add the liquid, lower the heat to a simmer and let the chicken and sauce simmer while you boil your noodles. Thicken the sauce the same way as written when your noodles are cooked.
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 8 button mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • 2½ cups milk
  • 2½ cups chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1½ tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • 340g (12oz) broad egg noodles
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon water
Directions
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and add it to the pan as you cut. Cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes turning a few times until it is no longer pink. As the chicken cooks, chop the carrots and onion into small pieces, quarter the mushrooms and mince the garlic. When the chicken is no longer pink (it won’t be quite cooked through yet), add the vegetables, salt, pepper and coriander to the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the vegetables start to soften and the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Add the milk, chicken broth, hazelnut liqueur, lime juice, honey and sriracha to the pan. Add the egg noodles and stir everything to combine. Try to get the noodles covered by the liquid as much as possible. Bring the liquid to a boil (you can cover the pan if you have a lid so this is faster), then reduce the heat to a high simmer for 5-7 minutes until the noodles are tender. Stir in the peas.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and water until it is combined and add it to the pot. Stir everything and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Serve with more sriracha if you like things spicy!

    So intrigued by the addition of hazelnuts to this dish, Stacey. I don’t think I’ve ever had them in a savory dish. Not only does it look delicious, but one pot meals have a soft spot in my busy mama heart!

      It’s hazelnut liqueur that gives the hazelnut flavour, but now I’m thinking I should add actual hazelnuts too – that would be tasty! I’m now wondering why I’ve never done that! :) And I’m with you on the quick and easy one pot meals – so nice on those crazy busy nights when everyone needs to be somewhere different!

    This looks awesome! Love the addition of hazelnut liqueur. I’m super intrigued by that! And I totally get into ruts where I don’t cook any “real” food for weeks – just side dishes and baked goods. So yeah for a one pot dinner!

      Yeah, I sometimes have to force myself to cook “real” food for the family! Apparently they can’t live on muffins alone, but it’s rather unfortunate! :) Thanks Liz!

    This pasta sounds so good with the hazelnut liqueur, sriracha, honey and lime! The fact that it’s made in one pot only makes me want to try it more! Can’t wait to make this!

    One pot pasta are my absolute favorite! The flavor combination of this dish is so creative, Stacey! I’ve never used hazelnut liqueur when cooking, so I can only imagine how flavorful this dish must be. Looks fantastic!

      I hadn’t used it before discovering this recipe either, but I love it. It’s such a great flavour in this pasta. Thanks Gayle!
