One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta

One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta - chicken, vegetables and creamy sauce packed into one pot!

Today, I have a meal that everyone will love. If you are still shoveling out from all the snow and hunkered down inside your house trying to get warm, this One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta is warm, comforting and creamy. Oh, and did I mention, easy! One pot meals are great because they are relatively quick and easy and you don’t have a million dishes to clean. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is spend an hour cooking a meal and then another half hour cleaning all of the dishes. On busy days, it is easier just to make a quick salad or dice a mango and avocado and eat them straight from the flesh for dinner. But sometimes, all I want is a warm, comforting home cooked meal. This one pot pasta dish is chicken pot pie in pasta form.

I’ll admit, before I ever tried a one pot pasta meal, I was skeptical. How could all of these ingredients cook in one pot? Trust me, it works. Make sure pasta is just barely covered with liquid (add a little more if not). If the pasta seems like it still isn’t cooked, continue cooking for a few additional minutes.

Make sure to stop by on Friday because I will be sharing a round-up of one-pot meals from some of my favorite bloggers. No more worries about what to plan for dinner. I’ve rounded up enough one pot meals to last you more than a month.

Ingredients 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped carrots
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts , cut into one-inch pieces
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth, plus more as needed
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add vegetables and minced garlic. Sauté over medium heat until vegetables become tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Continue to sauté over medium heat until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Add milk, broth and flour. Stir to combine and add pasta. Add a little more broth, if necessary, to cover pasta completely (about 1/2 cup). Stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce to low and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring every five minutes to keep pasta from sticking together. Remove lid and cook another 5 minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Remove from heat, stir in cheese and top with freshly chopped parsley.

  1. Not sure where it became very thick but it did! I would attempt this again perhaps without the flour? Thanks for the recipe! 

    • Hi, Julie! It’s a pretty thick pasta because of the cream sauce. You could definitely try it again without the flour. Sometimes, depending on the heat, it could thicken more. Higher temperatures tend to thicken faster.

  2. This came out great, even after doubling. I had most of the ingredients on hand but used pipe rigate because that’s all I had. Didn’t have chicken broth so I omitted the salt and used hot water and bouillon. Added a bit of sherry, some thyme, and some hot pepper flakes, also some spinach, and a can of artichokes. This recipe is VERY forgiving. You can really use it as a base for anything you can imagine if you keep the basics in mind and KEEP STIRRING! also I garnished with feta crumbles. I’m stoked to try more one pot meals! Thanks for the recipe and inspiration!

  3. So I’ve made this recipe a few times and I really love it with the exception of one thing. The noodles always end up sticking together as well as to the bottom of the pan. Am I doing something wrong?

  4. I make something similar but with rice instead of pasta, and I speed it up by using cream of celery and mushroom soups. Then bake until it is bubbly. My husband doesn’t like pasta and barely stands rice, but he loves this.

  5. How do you add the pasta and stir without it breaking in pieces?

    • Hi, Denise! I just stir it enough to combine the ingredients a little. You don’t have to stir too hard or else you might break the pasta.
