Every Tuesday in my house we normally have Taco Tuesday, its one of those dinner nights that the  kids really look forward too because they can dress their own tacos. A few weeks ago I decided instead of the regular ground beef Tacos that I normally make I would try to make pulled chicken. Needless to say it turned out great, I made my own taco seasoning and made use of my crock pot. I will share that recipe with you on another day. I had alot of pulled chicken left over and being that I don’t believe in wasting food, I was looking for some type of meal that I could make for the kids where I could use up the rest of the meat I had on hand. I literally had about 35 minutes to come up with something just before I picked the kids up.

I started rummaging through the cupboard looking to see what I could find to throw together. I will admit it was a little difficult because the pulled chicken was seasoned to make tacos. But I said hey what is the worst that could happen, I ended up pulling out some Penne Pasta, Fire flamed red Peppers, Cucumbers, Cherry Tomatoes and of course various seasonings and I got to work and came up with a master piece that my family gobbled up in no time. So with that being said I am sharing a quick recipe for my Sweet Onion Pulled Chicken Pasta its great for days like mine where I had no idea what to cook and I had very little time to put something edible together. I hope your family loves this recipe as much as mine did.
