Creamy Lemon Chicken One Pan Pasta Skillet makes the perfect easy weeknight meal. Best of all, it’s made entirely in ONE PAN in under 25 minutes. Full of lemon, chicken, spinach, parmesan and ricotta.
This Creamy Lemon Chicken One-Pan Pasta is probably the easiest one pot dish out of them all. It’s literally a 5 minute prep, and then everything gets tossed right into the pan, including the uncooked pasta.
Just let the water come to a boil and that’s it! Dinner can be ready and on the table in only 25 minutes and with only ONE PAN to clean up.
You can also easily toss in or replace the protein and veggies with whatever you have on hand. And like my other one pan pasta dishes, simply replace the pasta with gluten-free or your favorite kind that you have on hand.
Start off by browning the chicken with some garlic and then toss in the uncooked pasta and just let it simmer away.
Every so often, you’ll just have to stir it so the pasta doesn’t stick.
Once it’s almost cooked, I like to toss in some spinach for extra veggies, fresh basil, parsley, lemon juice and zest and finally Parmesan and ricotta cheese.
It’s super tasty and full of bright refreshing citrus flavors. You can’t beat how simple and easy it is to whip up making it perfect for those busy spring and summer weeknights.
