Day 293: Lime Chicken with Spinach Fettuccine

Serves 4-6

1 lb dry spinach fettucine, cooked and drained
1/2 cup chopped cilantro plus 1/4 cup for garnish
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/4 lbs chicken breast, diced 3/4 inch
1/4 medium onion, chopped
1/2 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 medium yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 medium orange bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 cup-1 1/2 cup half and half, warmed
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter

Place chicken, broth, onion, garlic, peppers, cilantro, lime juice, and soy sauce into slow cooker. Stir. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours (until chicken is cooked through). About an half hour before serving, prepare a roux. Melt butter over low heat, add flour and cook, stirring constantly. Slowly stir in half and half until smooth. Stir into chicken mixture. Add in cooked spinach fettuccine and stir to coat with sauce. Use salt and pepper to taste. Serve with squeezed lime and cilantro.

Yum! What is it about the combination of lime and cilantro that is so good? This yummy, creamy pasta dish is sure to hit the spot. I love all the colors in it too...green noodles and all the peppers. 4 stars
