often after this major success

A few years ago, my then-roommate and good friend, Allison, asked me to make her something “spicy with chicken” for her birthday dinner.  I wanted to make something that she’d never had before, and after scouring the web for inspiration, I became smitten with the idea of making Chicken Riggies.  I’d never heard of them before stumbling across the delicious-sounding recipe, but they’re the signature dish of Utica, New York, and I’ve gotta tell you, those people know their stuff.  Why this isn’t common all over the country, I’ll never understand.
 
One Pot Spicy Chicken Riggies. That's right, this delicious meal is made in just one pot, from cooking the chicken to making the sauce, to boiling the pasta! And you won't believe how insanely delicious it turns out. One of my favorite recipes of all time.
 
I wound up making the dish, which features chicken breast, rigatoni, and a hot cherry pepper and tomato cream sauce, and no one could get enough of it.  My roommate loved it, my boyfriend loved it, and to say that I loved it might just be an understatement.  I promised to make it again soon, and I really did want to, but cooking the chicken, boiling the pasta, and making the sauce just required so many dishes and too much time to do it on the regular.  So I didn’t.  Not for a long time.

Finally, after 2 years, I decided that I had to give it a go again, but this time I’d make it easier… by doing everything in one pot.  That’s right, one pot, without removing anything and “setting it aside”.  I even cooked the pasta right in the sauce.  I was expecting the worst, but guess what?  It was even better this way.  I know you don’t believe me, but just try it.  Just do it.  You’ll be amazed.

The Spicy Chicken Riggies wound up being  one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever made.  Honestly.  It was flavorful, filling, and it was so easy to make and clean up.  My mom and brother were in love with the dish– my mom even said that it might be her favorite recipe that I’ve ever made and that I had to add it to our rotation.  I froze leftovers for James who finally got around to trying them yesterday, and he agreed that they were “spectacular” after practically inhaling the entire Tupperware container I had stored them in.   That’s after reheating the Chicken Riggies in the microwave, by the way.  You know something is delicious after you can freeze it and reheat it in the microwave and it still tastes amazing.

I think one of the coolest things about this recipe is that the starch from cooking the pasta in the sauce acts almost like flour or cornstarch would, thickening the tomato and wine base and helping it reach the perfect consistency.  The pasta doesn’t get mushy or stay hard either, but it does slightly absorb some of the flavors of the sauce, which makes it even tastier.  I’m going to start experimenting with cooking noodles into sauces much more often after this major success!

Serve this meal to a crowd or whip it up on a busy weeknight for your family.  It’s so impressive and delicious that no one will believe that you made it all in just one pot.
