Easy Chicken Pasta Recipe

This Easy Chicken Pasta Recipe is a fast one skillet meal that combines chicken and pasta in a heavenly way. No need to cook the pasta before hand, it gets cooked right in the skillet, soaking up extra flavor as it simmers.

Easy Chicken Pasta Recipe

I like to use rotini in this chicken recipe, but you can use your favorite type of small pasta, such as macaroni, elbows or bowties.

If you’re making this as a dinner entrée, keep the boneless skinless chicken breasts whole, but as a quick lunch for the kids, cut them up in bite sized pieces and they won’t even notice they’re eating the vegetables!
