One Pot Chicken Pasta

This one-pot pasta recipe is one of the easiest dishes I have ever made. It is perfect for a weeknight dinner or a lazy weekend breakfast. All you need to do is throw all the ingredients into a pot, cover with a lid and allow it to simmer for a few minutes. Finally, you will be left with perfectly cooked pasta coated in a rich tomato sauce. This is a quick yet delicious dish for the whole family.

Total time: 45 minutes
Yield: Serves 2


  • 1.5 cup shredded chicken
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic, finely sliced
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp pasta seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 2 cup penne pasta
  • 1 cup grated cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh coriander leaves, for garnish

Cooking Directions

  1. To make the chicken stock, boil a few pieces of chicken (with bone) in water. Add salt, ginger-garlic paste and black pepper powder. Remove the pieces of chicken when cooked thoroughly. Shred the chicken with the help of a fork and keep it aside.
  2. In a pan, heat 1 tbsp oil on a medium-high flame. Add the chopped onions and saute it for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to soften.
  3. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  4. Add the tomato puree and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Then add the chicken stock, pasta seasoning, a cup of water and salt. Bring to a boil.
  6. Lower the flame and add the pasta and stir well to combine.
  7. Cover with a lid. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the pasta has cooked through. Stir at a 5-minute interval to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  8. Add the shredded chicken and stir well.
  9. Then add grated cottage cheese or paneer and black pepper powder. Give it a nice mix. The cottage cheese would provide a creamy texture to the dish.
  10. Top with grated mozzarella cheese and cover with a lid. Turn the heat off. Allow the cheese to melt completely.
  11. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

Recipe Notes:

  1. In this recipe, I have used penne pasta but you can use any other pasta of your choice. This pasta is from the brand Tasty Treat. It is made with suji or semolina

  2. I have used Keya’s pasta seasoning, but you can use fresh herbs if you like.
  3. Instead of adding store-bought cottage cheese or paneer I have used homemade chena. It gives a creamy texture to the whole dish.
