Spicy Korean Chicken Alfredo Pasta


Spice up your chicken alfredo pasta with Korean ramen hot sauce!

Get ready to be blown away by this spicy chicken alfredo pasta that is FULL of flavors! This recipe is rather simple since it is not entirely made from scratch. I use store-bought alfredo sauce and hot sauce from Samyang’s Buldak ramen, which is the notorious ramen featured in the Fire noodles challenge. The hot sauce is incredibly spicy but very flavorful. Whenever I eat the ramen, I only use about 1/6th of the packet and save the rest of the sauce for other dishes such as this alfredo pasta or my cheesy tteokbokki.

The flavors in this dish are very much Western with a hint of Korean. You can season the chicken with your own choice of seasonings – I used Kinder’s Cajun rub. This recipe is great for meal prepping or potlucks. Consider doubling or tripling the recipe to serve more people.
