One Pan Chicken Alfredo with Penne Recipe

This delicious creamy cheesy garlicky pasta is a real winner, and it is so simple to make. Best of all, you just have to saute some chicken then throw the rest of the ingredients into the pan and walk away for twenty minutes! How good is that?

Real good, let me tell you!

Here’s what you’ll need to cook this guaranteed plate-licker.

One Pan Chicken Alfredo with Penne

Super simple – you’ll need some chicken breast fillets, garlic, cream, chicken stock, parmesan cheese, olive oil, salt and pepper, and a packet of penne pasta.

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces, heat the oil in a large, heavy-based pan that has a lid (very important) and cook the chicken until it changes colour. You don’t need to cook it all the way through as we’ll be simmering it with the sauce a bit later on.

Add the crushed garlic and cook for a little bit more. Then add the chicken stock, cream and uncooked pasta and give everything a good stir. Bring to the boil, making sure all the pasta is a little bit submerged in the liquid, then reduce heat until the pan is gently simmering. Pop the lid on and allow to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pasta is just tender.

Take it off the heat, throw in the parmesan cheese and stir to combine. It will melt through the sauce, making it deliciously gooey and cheesy. It smells like heaven at this point, you guys!

Spoon it into bowls and enjoy! Hope you liked it as much as my family did!
