Protein and Carb Rich Chicken and Chorizo Pasta

Big on Flavour, Big on Nutrition

RATE:  
 

For a tasty dose of protein and carbs that goes big on flavour, try this post workout spicy chicken and chorizo that is both delicious, easy to make and provides the essential macros required for post training. This dish which is packed full of protein and carbs is also perfect for an endurance session or a rest day.

Chorizo is one of the most underrated sources of protein; a regular serving of the highly spiced Spanish sausage provides 24 grams. The chorizo also contains thiamine, which helps your body convert food into energy.

Ingredients

  • 200g pasta (your choice)
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
  • 200g chorizo sausage, chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • 2 white or red onions, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely diced
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 handfuls fresh basil

Meal Preparation

  1. Bring a large pan of slightly salted water to the boil, add the pasta and return to the stove. Reduce the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes
  2. While your pasta is cooking, fry the chorizo in a medium frying pan over a high heat turning occasionally. As the chorizo cooks, oil should start to run out of the sausage. Once the oil has fully run out of the sausage, get rid of all but around 2 tablespoons of the chorizo oil.
  3. Fry the chicken, onion, and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Then add the chilli, tomatoes and tomato puree. Bring to the boil, then cover and let simmer for three minutes, then let simmer uncovered for three more minutes to allow the sauce to reduce slightly.
  4. When the pasta is cooked, drain and add to your sauce in the pan.
  5. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh basil.
