Start boiling a pot of water for pasta.
Pour olive oil in a large pan and turn on to medium high heat. Add onions to pan, sprinkle lightly with salt, sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds. Add chicken, cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add crushed tomatoes, parsley, water (start with one cup of water, add more if necessary), adobo, salt and pepper. Stir well. Lower heat to medium and let cook for about 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a bit more water if the sauce thickens up more than you like.
While the sauce continues cooking, add pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook according to the directions on the box.
Serve sauce over pasta. Garnish with a bit of chopped parsley if you’d like.
