Italian Chicken Pasta

Here’s a delicious recipe for Italian Chicken Pasta:


  • 8 ounces dried pasta (such as penne, fusilli, or spaghetti)
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper (any color), diced
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken breasts and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add a bit more olive oil if needed. Add minced garlic and chopped onion, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add diced bell pepper to the skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.
  5. Stir in diced tomatoes (with their juices), chicken broth, dried basil, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken slightly.
  6. Return the cooked chicken to the skillet and stir to combine with the sauce.
  7. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss everything together until the pasta is well coated with the sauce.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  9. Serve the Italian Chicken Pasta hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  10. Enjoy your flavorful Italian-inspired meal!

Feel free to customize this recipe by adding other ingredients such as mushrooms, olives, or spinach. You can also use fresh herbs instead of dried ones for a brighter flavor. Buon appetito!
