The Easiest Garlic Parmesan Chicken with Bow Tie Pasta

Please share!

Cooking a delicious meal in just minutes is not an easy feat, but this garlic parmesan chicken with bow tie pasta recipe will surely be in heavy rotation once you try it.

For starters, it’s a crowdpleaser. Even my picky kids devour this yummy and satisfying chicken dish every time I make it. You can use other types of pasta, too, including gluten free.

But what I like the most about this creamy garlic parmesan pasta with chicken is that I can make it quickly and without stressing too much about the ingredients. All that needs a bit of prepping is the chicken. I prefer to defrost the chicken breast in the fridge and simply put it there the night before. 

 

Pro tip: Keep an eye on the skillet while simmering, stir every 5 minutes or so to make sure there is no sticking nor burning. And I also add more milk or cream if the liquid evaporates out too quickly.

Chicken with bow tie pastaNeed some variations on this recipe? Simply add frozen veggies to the recipe. Add them when the liquids are added, stir and let simmer. Peas and carrots go really well with the cream, parmesan and garlic mix.

If you do end up having leftovers, store in the fridge for up to 48 hours. I do not recommend freezing the leftovers.
