How To Make Chicken Parmesan Pasta

Sauté Chicken – Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Cute the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and then sauté them until browned.  Add in the sliced baby bella mushrooms, along with the salt and pepper, then cook until tender.

Mix In Sauce & Pasta – Next, I added a delicious tomato basil pasta sauce to the mixture in the skillet. It is seriously so flavorful, and tastes like homemade!  Add in the water to the skillet, and stir in the penne pasta until everything is fully mixed. The penne will cook right in the skillet with the other ingredients, which means one less pot to clean!

Cook – Cover the skillet and let the chicken pasta simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the pasta is tender. While it’s cooking, the pasta will absorb the liquid and becomes really flavorful.

Sides Dishes To Serve – Serve this meal with a side of Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables and a fresh Homemade Dinner Roll to soak up every last bit of flavor and you’ll be all set!
