Only the people who tried a similar plate in famous restaurants will feel excited as same as me when I was in the process of finding the secret behind this irresistible deliciousness.

I call this dish ” the holy sacred dish” simply because any recipe compiles both pasta and fried chicken is a holy damn sacred.

I tried this plate in a famous restaurant in both Cairo and Dubai and from the first bite I was sure, I found my true love that ain’t letting me down !

This taste of crispy chicken with the creaminess of Parmesan and fresh cream, “Al dente” pasta  and in the background the sweetness of marinara sauce which perfectly complete the scene.

In this recipe, I only depended on my sense of taste to get all these ingredients together  and it came out heavenly good and I claim it is way rich in terms of taste and much lighter !

You will have a taste as if you are in your favorite restaurant ordering your favorite plate and I guarantee you it will satisfy your craving at home with your beloved ones.
