2-3 chicken breasts – baked or grilled with salt + pepper
1/2 box pasta
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce – you can find this at the grocery store near the BBQ and hot sauces
2 tsp honey
Cook the pasta per the instructions on the box. Drain when it is cooked and add it back to the hot pot.
While the pasta cooks, slice or dice the chicken into pieces.
For the sauce, mix the mayo, sweet chili sauce and honey together really well.
Add the sauce to the cooked and drained pasta in the warm pot reserving a few spoonfuls of sauce. Toss the pasta and sauce until it is coated and warm over medium low heat. Add in the chicken for the last few minutes to make sure everything is tossed in the sauce and warm.
Once the pasta and chicken is in the bowl or on your plate, top each serving with the remaining sauce. You’re all set for a super simple and really delicious dinner!
