Chicken Parmesan Skillet Pasta {No Boil}

This is another one of my no-boil pasta dishes. I am officially obsessed with this cooking technique! This no-boil pasta is my take on Chicken Parmesan Pasta. It has all the flavors of Chicken Parmesan without the frying. I used chopped chicken in the pasta and added some bread crumbs and mozzarella cheese on top. It was SO delicious! This makes a ton and is very filling. Plan on feeding a crowd or having leftovers for lunch.

  1. Made this for dinner tonight using whole wheat rotini. Surprisingly, I could have cooked the pasta a few minutes less than the 15 minutes, but it was still delicious. We'll definitely have this again.

  2. We enjoyed this dish for dinner tonight. I was doubling it to take a couple dishes to my in-laws so I didn't complete it in the skillet, but other than that I followed the recipe. Very yummy and kid-friendly.

  3. I'll try it this week since I have a bunch of smoked chicken in the freezer that we made up just for dishes like this.
