Marijuana-Infused Chicken Marinara Pasta [Recipe]
If you’re looking for a great recipe to share with friends… well, you’ve found it. This chicken marinara pasta is THC-infused (with canna-ghee), tastes delicious, and is so filling. As a result, it’s perfect for laid back dinner parties.
You don’t need to be a canna chef to whip up this 420-friendly dinner. It can be broken up into 3 steps:
- Prepare and bake the chicken
- Cook the pasta
- Prepare the marinara
After that, you simply put it all together and top with your favorite cheese (I put feta on Aaron’s dinner). For myself, I opted for something more plant-based.
You know what makes it even better? Finishing this entree with a local, Colorado craft beer.
THC-Infused Chicken Marinara Pasta
Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Serving Size: 2
- 2 organic chicken breasts, thawed
- 1 Tbsp Italian mix (salt-free)
- 2 Tbsp canna-ghee or canna-butter
- 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil, spray with non-stick spray.
- Place chicken breasts on the tray, cover with 1 Tbsp canna-ghee or canna-butter each. Sprinkle herb mix and sea salt on top.
- Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the breasts are fully cooked. Allow to cool.
- 2 quarts of water
- 16 oz spaghetti pasta
- sea salt
- 1 Tbsp canna-ghee
- 8 minutes before the chicken breasts are done, boil a pot of water (2 quarts) on the stove.
- Once it has reached boiling point, turn to medium heat and add the spaghetti pasta. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Once the noodles are soft, strain them. Return the noodles to the pot and add 1 Tbsp of canna-ghee (optional).
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup zucchini, sliced
- 1 jar (24 oz) organic marinara
- Sea salt, to taste
- Black pepper, to taste
- Once the chicken and noodles are ready, heat a pan on medium-high heat on the stove. Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil, followed by 1/2 diced onion and 1 clove of garlic (minced). Saute for 1-3 minutes, or until the onion and garlic are translucent.
- Add the zucchini, sea salt, and black pepper. Cook for 4-5 more minutes, or until the zucchini is golden-brown.
- Next, add the marinara, turn the heat to low, and simmer for 4-5 minutes. You’re ready to serve dinner!
- This marinara stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Put it all together:
- Add some mixed greens to a bowl.
- Pile in the pasta
- Add some veggie marinara
- Top with sliced chicken
- Finish with your favorite cheese or garnish (like avocado!)
- Enjoy getting baked in the kitchen.
