This delicious one pot bruschetta chicken pasta has a bold, briney, and tart bruschetta flavor with incredibly juicy chicken - and can be made all in one pot!
Just one pot and 30 minutes for a dinner that serves four under 350 calories per serving!
I will admit to LOVING one pot pastas.
They are quick, easy and so simple- you can dump a bunch of ingredients in one pot and end up with a delicious dinner with only one thing to clean up.
Does it get any better than that?
Though, I will admit, I do get a bit bored with the few one pot pasta recipes I make in my normal rotation.
I recently had some chicken I needed to use up, and not much else on hand for a complete meal- when it hit me- instead of sauce (I was oddly completely out of tomatoes or tomato sauce), I could use up a jar of bruschetta spread I had just waiting for a chance to shine.
The result was fantastic- and truly a dish I can't wait to make again and again!
You can also customize this recipe and add or subtract fresh veggies. I used asparagus and an onion because that is what I had on hand- but you could nix them (though, this will reduce the amount of pasta everyone gets), use what I did, or whatever you have on hand!
Peas, diced zucchini, diced green beans, bell peppers, diced eggplant, or broccoli would all be great in this dish!
