One Pot Chicken Pasta (Easy!)
I have wanted to make something like this easy chicken parmesan pasta recipe for a long time. I’m all about the easy skillet chicken meals, and you wouldn’t believe how easy pasta is to make in a skillet. Just cover that bad boy and it does all the work for you!
Just one pan means virtually zero cleanup (and you will finish all the pasta, trust me). It’s hard to mess this one up, which is why I love it. Impress friends or family with hardly any effort at all. Comfort food made easy, that’s my specialty!
How to Make Chicken Parmesan Pasta
Grab your skillet, grab your 6 ingredients, throw everything together, and cook. That’s all there is to this easy one pot chicken parm pasta!
It’s amazing that you can make such a delicious dinner with so little work, but it’s NOT too good to be true.
- Chicken Breast (cut into cubes)
- Italian Dressing (click for my homemade recipes or buy your favorite at the store)
- Rigatoni Pasta
- Marinara Sauce (click for my homemade version or buy your favorite at the store)
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Parmesan Cheese
Count ’em–you’re just 6 ingredients away from a delicious dinner! Plus a bit of salt & pepper for seasoning, and some (optional) basil for garnish.
- If you prefer, you could make this dish with other types of pasta; penne would be great in this dish!
- If you don’t have a large skillet, use a stock pot instead.
- The pasta on the outer layer will be a little bit toastier, but the rest will be perfectly soft and tender.
- To make the top layer of cheese extra melty (yum!) just pop the skillet under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.
I love that you don’t even need a side dish with this delicious Chicken Parmesan Pasta Recipe. One Pot Meals are great like that!
I usually just serve it with some crusty garlic bread and call it a day. Oh and some wine–can’t forget the wine! Wine and pasta is a great combo for making dinner at home feel like a special occasion.
This one pot chicken pasta has simple ingredients, but lots of flavor and lots of cheese. The perfect combo. I know you’re going to love this one!

I added fresh spinach right before I added the cheeses. Also grilled my chicken for extra flavor
As a single working Dad, who hates fast food, I’m always looking for quick and delicious meals. This was a instant hit with my son and his buddies. I used Prego Definitely a keeper!
Thanks for sharing, Dan!
Was I supposed to cook the pasta first then add to the pot?
It cooks in the pot!
We love this meal and make it on the regular. Have you tried freezing it before? Thinking of taking it to a friend but need an option that can freeze if she doesn’t want it tonight.
I have not!
Loved it. One of my go to chicken recipes. I use Paul Newman’s Sockoroni. Adds a little kick and some vegetables.
Sounds amazing, Carol!
Is there a way I could make this whole thing in the crockpot instead of a skillet? I’ve made it before but I’m not the best at making chicken. Thank you for your help!
I have not attempted that before!
I’m trying to create it in the crockpot today. I can let you know how it turns out!
Ashley….how did it turn out?
My husband made this, everyone raved about ot!
Thanks for sharing, Jill!
Delicious, easy, and the kids loved it! Used rotini noodles since that’s what I had and it turned out great!
Thanks for sharing, Amy!
I love a one pot/pan dish, but this was a little bit bland for my crew. I used ziti noodles and still had to simmer an extra 10 minutes for them to be close to done. The “brown” on the chicken rubbed off as the dish cooked making that taste plain. I may try this again, but with breaded chicken nuggets rather than just plain chicken. Perhaps just microwave those as they are precooked, and fold them in at the end.
I am sorry to hear it didn’t quite work out!
Mine came out very watery and I followed the easy directions. Any suggestions?
Oh no! Maybe a little bit less water than what’s called for!
