Easy Chicken & Pasta


Easy Chicken & Pasta is a one pot meal and very good! I adapted this recipe years ago from a Campbell’s soup recipe that I cut out of a magazine. This can go from the pan to the table in about 30 minutes. A great nutritional recipe with chicken, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and pasta. Make this even healthier by using 98% fat free cream soups.



Ingredients – I cooked my chicken by boiling it ahead of time.

You can also use leftover chicken from another meal or cook it

in the large skillet before you make the rest of the meal.


In a large skillet, add both cans of soup, water, basil and frozen vegetables.

Stir until combined.

Bring to a boil.


Add the pasta and cook until desired tenderness, stirring frequently.

We like our pasta soft, not Al Dante, so I used a lid to

retain more of the liquid since I cook it longer.

Add the chicken and simmer for 5 minutes.



Stir and let sit for about 5 minutes so the liquid is absorbed, then serve.

Optional: Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese and parsley.

  1. Looks tasty and I think it would be great to make ahead of time and chill it for those hot Summer evenings when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.

    • That’s how I ate the leftovers the next day…..cold. It was delicious hot as well as cold! But it was funny because I didn’t need any salt eating it hot and needed to add salt eating it cold….lol Thanks for commenting Linda!

  2. Sounds good Diane, could I substitute whole wheat pasta? I know this diet is suppose to help with a few issues that I have, but I’m having to make a lot of substitutions in recipes.

  3. We tried this for dinner this evening. Not only was it lovely but my 16 year o!d son asked me to teach him how to cook it, he liked it so much! I think it’s a hit!
