Prep Time: 5 min | Cook Time: 50 min | Total Time: 55 min

Serves: 2 people

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cup shredded chicken
  • 2 cup penne pasta
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic, finely sliced
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp pasta seasoning
  • 2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 cup grated cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves, for garnish
For the chicken stock:
  • 500g chicken, with bone
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 2 tsp black pepper powder
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Directions:

To make the chicken stock:

Heat water in a pot. Add a few pieces of chicken (with bone), salt, ginger-garlic paste and black pepper powder. Boil for a few minutes. Remove the pieces of chicken when cooked thoroughly. Shred the chicken with the help of a fork and keep it aside.

To make one-pot chicken pasta:

In a pan, heat 1 tbsp oil over a medium-high flame. Add the chopped onions and saute it for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to soften.

Add the garlic and cook for a minute.

Add the tomato puree and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Then add the chicken stock, pasta seasoning, a cup of water and salt. Bring to a boil.

Lower the flame and add the pasta and stir well to combine.

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.

Add the shredded chicken and stir well.

Then add grated cottage cheese or paneer and black pepper powder. Give it a nice mix. The cottage cheese will provide a creamy texture to the dish.

Top with grated mozzarella cheese and cover with a lid. Turn the heat off. Allow the cheese to melt completely.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve.

Recipe Notes:

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