Number of Servings:


  1. 2 tablespoons - extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 3/4 pounds - chicken breast boneless, skinless
  3. 1/2 teaspoons - ground cumin
  4. 1 teaspoons - chili powder
  5. 4 - shakes of cayenne pepper sauce
  6. 1/4 pounds - smoked andouille sausage chopped
  7. 2 tablespoons - all-purpose flour
  8. 1/2 teaspoons - thyme
  9. 2 cloves - garlic minced
  10. 1 cups - chicken broth
  11. 1/2 cups - half-and-half
  12. 3 - shakes of Worcestershire sauce
  13. 1 cups - Parmigiano Reggiano cheese grated
  14. 14 ounces - egg fettucine or rotini or ziti cooked al dente


Dice chicken breasts and rub with cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper sauce.

In a large skillet or frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sausage and cook for 5 minutes to brown.

Sprinkle pan with flour. Cook another minute, then add the thyme and garlic. Shake the pan and add the broth, stirring and picking up all the bits from the bottom of the pan.

Stir in the half-and-half and a couple shakes of Worcestershire sauce and 1/3 cup of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Bring to a gentle boil, then quickly reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes.

Toss drained noodles with sauce and remaining cheese. Top with freshly ground black pepper and extra thyme.
