Here’s a One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta recipe I made. I love how everything cooks in the same pan – chicken, pasta noodles, and all!

This is how it turned out:

One-Pot Cheesy Chicken Penne Pasta {}


  • 1-2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 uncooked boneless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 can Manwich Bold sauce + 1 can water
  • 2 c. chicken broth – try homemade!
  • 8 oz. uncooked Penne pasta
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar jack cheese


  1. Heat oil in a large pot. Add onion and garlic then saute for a minute or two. Add raw chicken, and cook until thoroughly cooked.
  2. Add broth, Manwich sauce, water, and pasta in the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 25-30 mins.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until it melts.
