This chicken pasta recipe combines two of the nation’s favourite ingredients and is the perfect chicken recipe for your midweek family meals. You just can’t go wrong with this chicken pasta recipe. This one-pot pasta is made with fusilli pasta along with some chicken and vegetables.

A vegetable pasta with chicken recipe that will be loved by everyone, adults and kids alike. Nothing beats a chicken pasta recipe for a quick and delicious evening meal. A healthy chicken pasta recipe for the ultimate weekday family dinner!

Chicken pasta is one of my all-time favourite dishes. Not only do I love it, but it means that there are no fussy eaters. Pasta is one thing that always goes down well, whether it is a tuna pasta bake or this delicious chicken pasta.

I always make a homemade pasta sauce, but you could use store-bought sauce. I feel like pasta sauce isn’t actually that hard to make. The way I make pasta sauce is very similar to my pizza sauce recipe. Although sometimes I like to make it extra spicy because I love my spices!

I like to use fusilli pasta in this recipe. The curvy shape of it allows the pasta sauce to cling to the pasta. However, you could use other varieties of pasta as well, for example, penne or rigatoni. Use whatever you have in your cupboard!

As always, I have to add bell peppers. There is just something about those colourful varieties of capsicum peppers that make me want to add them into everything. Recently I even made a capsicum curry dedicated to my love for this vegetable.

I like to add sweetcorn as well, but you can add whatever vegetables you like. Everyone has their own personal preferences. This chicken pasta recipe is a great way to disguise vegetables in a delicious and homey dinner meal. Chicken and pasta are the best combinations for everything as they literally pair well with any vegetable! What isn’t to love?
