NAKANO Bow-tie Chicken and Pasta Recipe

I’m heading to Italy in less than two weeks so as a way to celebrate with the kids we decided to have Italian food for dinner.  Plus we love Italian food.  I wanted to try a new recipe and had a bottle of NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar Red Pepper in the cabinet. I searched the Mizkan website and within their recipe database I stumbled upon the below meal.  I changed a few ingredients and edited their recipe to make a better fit for our family.


  • 10 oz. dry bow-tie pasta
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar Red Pepper
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • asparagus (optional)

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Return pasta to pot; set aside. Meanwhile, cut chicken into bite-size pieces; season with garlic salt, pepper and onion powder at your discretion. In 10-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat; add chicken. Brown chicken well on all sides; stir frequently. Add rice vinegar; cook until liquid is almost gone. Add cream, and steamed asparagus if desired; heat through. Pour sauce over pasta; gently stir until hot. Serve immediately.Makes 4 servings.

I was a little concerned we were not going to like the sauce.  It just didn’t seem like many ingredients to me for sauce, being only the vinegar and cream.  However we were all pleasantly surprised and the kids asked when we can cook the meal again soon.  I was impressed at how simple this dinner was and how delicious.
