Chicken Fajita Pasta Skillet

As moms of any kind – stay/work-at-home, working outside the home, homeschooling, etc, quick meals that are easy to clean are the best, this chicken fajita pasta skillet is the best. Not only is it quick and easy to clean up, but you’re getting all the food groups in there too. I’m a big fan of skillet meals now because they tend to be quick and they have easy cleanup. A huge hit with my kids is our eggroll skillet, add a little plum sauce, and enjoy.

How to make this Chicken Fajita Pasta Skillet recipe:

You’re going to start by cooking your chicken breasts – sliced or diced into bite-sized pieces, with half of the fajita seasoning in a little EVOO in a deep sided skillet.

Once your chicken is just cooked, remove from your skillet, it will get cooked more soon so try not to over cook it.

Add a little oil and your sliced peppers, garlic, onions and remaining fajita seasoning and cook until tender, about 2 minutes.

Once your veggies are tender stir in tomatoes, 1 cup of chicken broth, and uncooked pasta.

Cover and let it boil gently until pasta is cooked, about 15 minutes. (Aren’t those peppers and onions beautiful?)

Once your pasta is cooked, add your chicken back into the skillet and let it heat through.

Remove chicken to a large bowl and set aside.

  3. Add broth, tomatoes with all its juices, and dry pasta to the same pan. Bring liquid to a boil and immediately reduce to a low boil. Cover and let cook for 15 min. until pasta is cooked. Liquid should be mostly absorbed. When pasta is cooked, add the chicken back to the same pan. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stir to combine and heat through.
