1/2 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped
6 cloves Garlic, minced
2 tbs fresh Jalapeno, mined (remove the seeds!)
1/4 lb butter
1/2 cup Chicken stock
3 tbs Tequila
3 tbs Lime juice
3 tbs Soy sauce
1 lb Chicken breast, diced
1/2 cup Red Onion, minced
1/2 cup Red Bell Pepper, diced
1/2 cup Green Bell Pepper, diced
1.5 cup Heavy Cream
1 lb Spaghetti, cooked

Melt half the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook cilantro, garlic, and jalapeno for 5 min. Add chicken stock, tequila, and lime juice. Bring mixture to a boil and cook down until thick. Set aside.

Marinade chicken with soy sauce for 5 min. In seperate skillet, melt remaining butter and cook onion and peppers over medium heat for 3 min. Add chicken and cook 1 min. Add tequila mixture and cream. Increase heat until mixture boils and chicken is cooked through (don't overcook the chicken!) Serve over Spaghetti.

Note: I have found that a Wok will work very well for the last stage of this!

Hey, these sound tasty!!
Especially with the jalapeno's!!!!

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

fettucini noodles should work, or any type of noodles. I might not want to try angel hair pasta though.

Tequila! ah yes. You have to buy a bottle to get the 3 tbs, so it's a bit for the chicken and the rest for the Cook (and company!)
