Step 1

In a bowl, mix diced chicken with olive oil and minced garlic. Heat a large, heavy saute pan. Add butter and melt. Add the diced garlic chicken, stirring occasionally until well-browned on all sides. Add bell pepper, onion and jalapeno. Continue cooking until vegetables soften.

Add tequila, soy cause and chicken broth. Cook, reducing the mixture until there is just a little liquid left. Add the heavy cream, 2 tbsp. of the cilantro and the lime juice. Cook until sauce thickens.

Add the cooked and well-drained spinach fettuccine to the cream mixture. Toss until pasta is hot and well-coated. Divide pasta into 2 large bowls and top with remaining cilantro.

Serve hot.
