Cacio e Pepe Pasta with Crispy Chicken
When you’re in the mood for a creamy & comforting meal, this is it. The Cacio e Pepe sauce is rich & flavorful and the black pepper gives it a bit of a kick. The chicken is crispy on the outside and soft & juicy on the inside.
You could easily eat the entire bag of pasta at once, but the calories, sodium & saturated fat would be way too high. So, in order to enjoy the delicious flavors while keeping the meal healthy & well-balanced, we’re using just ¼ bag of pasta per serving and adding plenty of veggies & protein.
