Fusilli with chicken and barbecue sauce

Today I share with you a recipe that will make your pasta dish more interesting when accompanied by a succulent chicken: it is Fusilli with chicken and barbecue sauce.

This recipe for Fusilli with Chicken and Barbecue Sauce was actually the solution I found when it came time for an emergency dinner. Whenever I have an emergency at dinner I go straight for pasta. It is quite fast, very easy and can be completed with almost anything. Also another advantage is that you can choose the type of pasta that you like the most or the one you have at home.

Luckily I had a bit of time to choose and opted for fusilli, a barbecue chicken breast and bacon. To make a barbecue sauce it only takes a few minutes and from experience I know that this combination of chicken, bacon and barbecue sauce works well, so I quickly got to work.

Barbecue sauce is not the thick, brown kind you use to dip French fries. It is a tomato-based sauce with a few hints of barbecue flavor, which is enriched with bacon.

This recipe can be easily increased if you are cooking for more people, you just have to double the ingredients. Note that it may take a little longer to reduce the sauce to the correct consistency. This sauce is also suitable for freezing, you just have to defrost it completely in the refrigerator before reheating it.

If you are preparing the sauce to use later, then I would suggest reducing its cooking by a few minutes. This way, the sauce can continue to reduce when you reheat it later. If you haven't, simply add a little water to the sauce before reheating it to prevent burning.
