Szechuan_Chicken_LIFEintheLOFTHOUSE I love this Szechuan Chicken recipe. It’s a copy-cat version of the one I order all the time at The Pasta Factory, which is a popular, locally owned restaurant where I live. Their Szechuan Chicken is one of the healthy choices there and it is so yummy!

Szechuan Chicken is an easy and healthy meal your whole family will love. The teriyaki gourmet sauce gives it so much flavor, and the linguine pasta makes it that comfort food we all love!

The first year Kale and I were married is when I created this dish. I always loved looking for new recipe ideas back then and still do to this day. 🙂 He ended up just loving this one and he always requests it for dinner. The winning ingredient is the Yoshida’s Gourmet Marinade Sauce. It’s that same great sauce I use for our favorite Asian Chicken Salads.

Szechuan Chicken pasta is loaded with flavor from the sauce, grilled chicken and veggies! It’s easy. It’s healthy and absolutely delicious. I just love meals like that.

I like to use whole wheat Linguine to go with it, but you could always use any pasta you like if you’re not a fan of the wheat. Either way, you can’t go wrong. This recipe is a winner!




Szechuan Chicken
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup Yoshida’s Original Gourmet Marinade (found at Costco and Albertsons)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced (seeds and ribs removed)
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, steamed/cooked
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 8 ounces (1/2 lb) Linguine noodles
  1. Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the linguine noodles and cook according to package directions. (While noodles are boiling, start cooking the chicken.)
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the diced chicken and cook until chicken turns white and is no longer pink on the inside. About 10-12 minutes.
  3. In a small skillet, add 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and saute until soft. (10 minutes or so) Once softened add to the cooked chicken.
  4. Once chicken is completely cooked, pour in the gourmet sauce, minced garlic and paprika. Stir well. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook for 5-8 more minutes, or until marinade is thoroughly heated and slightly thickened. Add in the cooked broccoli last.
  5. When linguine is done cooking drain the water and then add noodles into the chicken/marinde mixture. Stir to combine and then serve in individual bowls.
  6. Enjoy ♥

  1. Holly, I completely sympathize. I’ve not been eating too well since the beginning of the new year. And watching The Biggest Loser doesn’t help anything. 😉

    That being said, this dish makes me want to eat all things green. It looks absolutely delicious, and I’ve gotta find that marinade!

  2. The Szechuan chicken sounds healthy 🙂 I know what you mean about eating more/less healthy when you want to improve…something about forbidding yourself makes things more tempting!

  3. Thanks for all your comments : )

    Carrian- Pasta factory is a very popular,locally owned restaurant down here in Southern Utah (St. George) It is sooo good! : )

  4. Haha that Oreo Brownie Sundae is so hard to resist! Now I’ve gotta get me some of that sauce. I know you’ve always been a fan of it! This meal looks incredible Holl!

  5. Mandy you are so right! I swear I think I love every dish on your blog (as you can tell Ive posted a ton of them on mine..ha) My new header was inspired by your old one!

  6. I’ve been eating good for one day and the next day I eat bad. I like to tell myself it’s a healthy balance. One day on and one day off. haha. This recipe looks great!

  7. What a beautiful blog, Holly! Just discovered you via Pinterest, and had to try the Szechuan Chicken. First time trying Mr. Yoshida’s sauce, too. It rocks! Hubs and I thoroughly enjoyed. I used a little less chicken, added diced carrots & celery and fresh spinach. Bookmarked your website and will be back again and again. 🙂

  8. I made this as a veggie side dish to your baked sweet and sour chicken and egg rolls (pork instead of chicken…didn’t want two chicken items). I used frozen stir fry veggies. Needless to say i made all three for less than 15.00 and had a ton of leftovers. My son said we need to have that at least once a month. It’ll be a long time before i spend $ on take out again. Btw, for the egg rolls i used a bag of Dole’s new asian chopped veggies…no chopping and a great variety of veggies. Love your blog and recipes. They are easy and economical.

  9. Yum I have been looking all over for pasta factory’s Szechuan chicken copycat recipe and I stumbled upon your blog! Just so happens I have all the ingredients so I think I will make this tonight! Thanks a bunch!
