Spicy Chicken Spaghetti

Spicy-sweet chicken on pasta, the kind of spicy that hits you right between your eyes. When I make my spicy chicken pasta I like using dried chili which I make by roasting fresh chilis in the oven for 20 minutes until they shrivel up and dry to a dark-reddish hue. The spiciness is tempered by the sweetness so this makes a good contrast.
