  • 2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts about 2-3
  • salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups rotini pasta uncooked
  • 1 cup Sweet Baby Ray's Original Barbecue Sauce divided use
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or more, to taste)


  • Heat a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pot or large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Season both sides of chicken breasts with salt, pepper and a little bit of garlic powder.
  • Place chicken breasts into pot and cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Then flip over and cook an additional 3-4 minutes (until cooked through.)
  • Once you flip the chicken, spread about 2 tbsp. Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce onto each side.
  • Cook for an additional two minutes.
  • Take cooked chicken out of the pan and set aside.
  • Add diced onions to the pot (you may need to add a bit more oil.) Season onions with a little salt & pepper.
  • While the onions are cooking, chop up the chicken into 1-inch chunks.
  • Stir garlic into the pot and cook for just a minute (you don't want it to burn.)
  • Then add in the can of undrained diced tomatoes and chicken stock.
  • Stir in uncooked rotini pasta and diced chicken.
  • Allow to come up to a boil, then cover and turn down the heat to medium and allow to simmer until the pasta has cooked (about 12-15 minutes.)
  • Lastly, add in 1/4 cup (or more, depending on your preference) of SBR Sauce and top with shredded cheddar cheese.
