Love my one pan chicken pasta on the BBQ?! Well, I transformed that meal so it can be made any time of the year! #ProntoNight

You know when you create a meal and the family just keeps talking about it? Well, my one pan chicken pasta on the BBQ really hit the spot with my family because they just keep bringing it up. Can I complain? No! Nothing makes me happier than seeing them eat 🙂 That being said, we have some reaaaaalllly hot temperatures upon us and even I do not want to be outside in it BBQing. So, I decided to recreate this one pan chicken pasta recipe so it can be made any time of the year on the stove top!
Not only that, but I made my first YouTube video documenting the steps on how to make this dish! First video, so be nice, but I definitely felt a rush making it. Of course, I accidentally deleted the part where I add the Pronto Pasta, but rest assure, I am using the penne varietal this time around and it worked just as well as the rotini did on the BBQ.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy as my daughter would say right now 🙂
- 1½ lbs bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs pat dry.
- 1 (340g) box Penne Barilla Pronto Pasta (or style of your choosing.)
- 1 red pepper, halved and sliced
- 1 green pepper, halved and sliced
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 oz. fresh spinach
- 2 tsp. lemon zest
- ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2½ cups chicken broth
- Salt and pepper
- Season chicken generously with salt and pepper.
- Place large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.
- Place chicken, skin side down, into pan and cook for about 7 minutes or until skin is nice and golden. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes, or until chicken is golden.
- Add peppers and tomatoes, Cook for a few minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for another minute.
- Pour in the sauce ingredients. Add pasta and cook for 10 minutes, or until pasta is cooked through and little to no liquid remains.
- Remove from heat and stir in spinach. Season with salt and pepper.
This one pan chicken pasta was just as simple as making it on the BBQ! Now we have an all-year round recipe 🙂 I am loving these Pronto Pasta’s from Barilla. Seriously, dinner is a breeze and I am one of those people that hates taking the time to boil pasta (and even hate cleaning the pan more so!)
