Bow Tie Noodles and Jerk Chicken

Okay, someone told me the other day that Jamaicans do not eat pasta. WHAT? It is not an official dish, but Jamaicans pretty much eat any kind of food. Here is a really simply Pasta Dish with some authentic Jerk chicken thrown in...



  • boneless chicken breast halves (or you can use thigh meat)
  • 2 teaspoons jerk sauce (click on recipe in the preparation section)
  • 1 (12 ounce) package uncooked bowtie noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  1. Preheat the grill for high heat. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, cook the egg noodles 6 to 8 minutes, soft and drain .
  2. . Grill chicken 8 to 10 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook the garlic for one minute. Mix in the chicken stock, 1 tablespoon jerk sauce, white wine,
  4. juice of 1 lime, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and stir in the heavy cream. Cook and stir until mixture is thickened, about 5 minutes. Do not allow it to boil.
  5. Pour the cooked egg noodles into the saucepan, and toss with the cream sauce. Divide noodles onto 4 serving plates, and top with grilled chicken.
You can sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top the noodles if you like
