8) Once the sauce and noodles are ready, divide the noodles and pour the sauce on top! Sprinkle crushed red pepper on top and serve warm.

Ready in less than 30 minutes.

Tips:

Make the chicken ahead of time and freeze it in individual containers or baggies.

 

If you can buy a large package of chicken, enough for a week or two. Then bake the plain chicken in the oven. Once it is cool, freeze it.
