Baked Cheesy Chicken Pasta





This recipe is great because it uses things that we always have in our cupboard and is pretty dang foolproof. I mean, honestly, you can�t go wrong with chicken, pasta and cheese! It was quite easy and pretty efficient on time too!

Baked Cheesy Chicken Pasta

Ingredients:
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1/2 lb. pasta (rotini, penne, rigatoni, bowties- whatever you�d like)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 c. + 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 c. milk
  • 3/4 c. shredded cheese (I used a provolone/mozzarella mix)
  • 3/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Boil pasta until al dente- about 3 minutes under recommended time. Set aside.
  3. While pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a medium skillet. Season chicken with salt & pepper and cook until no longer pink inside. Remove from pan and thinly slice. Set aside.
  4. In a medium pot or dutch oven, melt butter and add flour and garlic. Whisk together and cook for about 1 minute (you are creating roux- the thickener for your cheese sauce).
  5. Gradually add milk while whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer and whisk frequently while sauce thickens. It may take a few minutes to thicken, just keep whisking!
  6. Remove pot from heat and gradually stir in cheeses.
  7. Add chicken and pasta to pot. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  8. Pour mixture into a greased baking dish.
  9. Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes or until top is golden and bubbling. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.
