Spicy creamy chicken pasta recipe

Can you say DELICIOUS? Our entire family gobbled this up and we will be eating this on a regular basis. It is easy and tastes fabulous! Everything you need is in one pot so it makes everything so easy. Clean up is a breeze with this recipe! Serve it with a simple side salad or Easy Grilled Broccoli if you prefer. It’s also really tasty with this Oven Roasted Parmesan Asparagus. We also love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe. Oh my! These are so good and you can dip them in the creamy tomato sauce! So good!

This pasta dish is one of our favorites! It’s really easy to make if you have guests coming over. It tastes so fancy but really is so simple. Everyone will ask for the recipe and think you spent a ton of time on this. We won’t tell……. 🙂

You will need a large skillet. We used a cast iron skillet but you can certainly use what you prefer. I just love how food cooks and tastes in cast iron. If you don’t have one, I bought my cast iron skillet on Amazon on sale. They have lots of sizes to choose from. I also make Cast Iron Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie that is amazing if you need a dessert idea! I also want to try this Cast Iron Cherry-Berry Cobbler. Yum! Both of these dessert ideas are fantastic with a scoop of vanilla ice cream served on top. Or you can use whipped cream.

This One Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta get dinner on the table fast!

I don’t know about you but dinner time can get crazy around here. Life is busy and we are often all headed in different directions. It does not always happen but I try really hard to get everyone around the table. Those moments are precious when everyone comes together to share about their day. Thee is just something special about gathering around the table.

My hope is that this recipe will allow you to spend less time in the kitchen and more time around the table with your family! It’s such a simple meal and we love one pot dishes around here. I’m all for less clean up. 🙂 We are just not in the season of life where I have tons of time to make these elaborate meals that require 7 different pots and pans. We all know what that can do to a kitchen and the mess afterwards! That’s why I just love this simple Creamy Chicken Pasta! Everything goes into one skillet and it’s that simple. Preparation takes very little time and the entire family gobbles this up. That makes a mama happy!
