A pan of Chicken Supreme Pasta Bake is definitely comfort food to the max. This easy, cheesy pasta bake comes together in no time when you combine the toppings from a chicken supreme pizza with pasta and cheese.
If you love cheesy pasta dinners, make sure you try this Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Bake. It’s a family favorite here.
My goal to start making more dinners around here is going pretty well. I have been trying to experiment more with savory foods along with all the sweets and treats each week.
Let’s talk comfort food for a minute.
Do you have a certain food group that you just absolutely love? I’m not talking dessert here. For me, that would have to be pasta. 9 times out of 10 I will choose a pasta dish when we go out to eat.
Although, I have been branching out lately and ordering different things. It really is true that the older you get, the more your tastes buds change. Or grow up…depends how you look at it.
Another meal in our house that is total comfort food is pizza. We usually make Homemade Pizza Dough and Homemade Pizza Sauce at least once a month for Friday night movie nights. The other days we order from different pizza places. Homemade, store bought, pizza shop…we pretty much enjoy them all.
So I combined these two comfort foods into this amazing Chicken Supreme Pasta Bake.
Chicken Supreme Pizza is one of my favorites, so I knew I wanted to incorporate those toppings into a delicious pasta bake. This pasta dish starts on the stove top and can be eaten in 30 minutes.
But let’s be honest. Topping it with more cheese and baking it into a melty, ooey, gooey pasta bake is so much better. More cheese always get our vote!
Tips for making this Chicken Supreme Pasta Bake:
This dinner comes together pretty quickly if you prep your ingredients ahead of time. I like to chop my chicken and vegetables early in the day and keep them in containers in the refrigerator.
You can cook your own chicken, but usually I buy an extra rotisserie chicken and keep that in our freezer for quick meal prep. You could even use canned chicken if that’s what you have on hand.
You can cook your pasta while the veggies are cooking or you can cook your pasta ahead of time and keep it refrigerated. Make sure you toss the cooked pasta with a little bit of oil to keep the noodles from sticking if you do cook it ahead of time.
When it is time to start dinner, you will be ahead of the game because you have all the prep work done. Just toss the chopped veggies in a skillet with some butter and sauté for 2 minutes. Then sprinkle the veggies with some flour and cook for another minute or two.
That flour is going to cook into the butter and create a roux that will thicken up the chicken broth. It may be a little clumpy and thick at first, but be patient. It will cook down.
Whisk in the chicken broth and stir until it thickens slightly. Now you can add the yogurt and cheese and let it get all melty and wonderful. This dish is full of dairy and proteins.
If you need dinner in 30 minutes, this skillet dish is perfect. You can eat it as soon as you melt all the cheese into the sauce. Just stir in the cooked pasta, tomatoes, and cooked chicken and dinner is ready.
BUT…if you have an extra 20 minutes, I suggest putting the cheesy pasta into a baking dish and topping it with even more cheese. Oh, yeah!!! You want to do it this way!
This dinner was met with rave reviews from my kids. They loved that this pasta had so much melted cheese on top AND inside.
They were so excited about the cheese that they didn’t even realize that I had slipped mushrooms into their dinner. Haha! Gotta love it when I can slide that one past them. I’m thinking another pan of this Chicken Supreme Pasta Bake needs to happen again very soon.
