Description

This one-pot pasta recipe is bursting with flavor. Best part: the easy cleanup!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil
  • 1-¼ pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs, Cut Into Bite Sized Pieces
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1-½ teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 4 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 12 ounces, weight Penne Pasta
  • 2 cups Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
  • 1-¼ cup Basil Pesto
  • ½ cups Chopped Sun Dried Tomatoes

Preparation

Place a large pot (I used a Dutch oven) over medium heat. Add avocado oil. Once hot, add chicken, salt and pepper, and basil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and browned on the outside. Add garlic and cook 2 more minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside.

Turn the heat up to high and add water and salt to the now-empty pan. Bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook, stirring often, until pasta is al dente and most of the water is absorbed, about 12 minutes. It’s okay if there’s still a little water that hasn’t evaporated!

Stir in tomatoes, pesto, and sun-dried tomatoes. Serve immediately. Enjoy your one-pot cleanup!
