Creamy Chicken Pasta
Topped with a Fried Vegan Chicken Breast this Plant Based Creamy Chicken Pasta is just as fulfilling as it is delicious. It's a simple but still super bomb. The parmesan crisp on the chick'n is honestly EVERYTHING.
I've been looking for new recipe inspo, and, a scroll down my Instagram feed always does the trick. This recipe was inspired by a post from @_mrmakeithappen_ on Insta. He recreated the Louisiana Chicken Pasta from Cheesecake Factory and I immediately knew I needed to veganize it! It came out too fire.
