One Pot Chicken and Pasta Meal 

One Pot Chicken and Pasta Meal 

A perfect weeknight meal, one pot, no trouble and lots of flavour. 

One Pot Chicken and Pasta Meal                        

Serves 8 – 10



3 lbs. cut up boneless chicken pieces, thigh or breast

For the marinade:

1 c. buttermilk

1 tsp. herb mixture of choice (I used A Pot de Fleur Délice à la flour d'ail. But using FaCs would work. Or use 1 tsp. paprika of choice, 1/ 2  tsp. black pepper, 1 tsp. oregano and 1 tsp. garlic salt.) 

* 1 tsp. smoked paprika (If using the Pot de Fleur Herb mixture)

For the Main event:

2 sticks celery

4 small carrots

1 medium sized onion

1 bell pepper

3 cloves garlic

2 tbsp. olive oil

8 c. chicken broth

2 c. water

1 tbsp. herb mixture (I used Délice à la fleur d'ail)

1 tbsp. seasoning mix (see FaCs Seasoning recipe here for what to add separately)

1 tbsp. coarse sea salt

1 tsp. ground black pepper

4 c. uncooked pasta of choice (a short pasta is best to use here, like macaroni, rotini, penne or orecchiette.


Marinate your chicken:

·      Place the cut-up chicken pieces in a bowl or Ziploc bag with the buttermilk, herb mixture and smoked paprika. Marinate for as long as you can, 2 hours at the very least.

·      When ready to start your recipe, drain your chicken pieces thoroughly and pat with paper towels till somewhat dry. Discard marinade. 

·      Pour the olive oil in a medium hot Dutch oven or heavy pot and add chicken pieces, brown the meat thoroughly.

·      Dice all the vegetables the same size

·      Add to the chicken in the pot and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, scraping bottom of the pot.

·      Add the chicken broth, water, salt, herb mixture, seasoning and black pepper.

·      Cook, covered in 350° F oven or on stove top on medium-low for 90 minutes. (If on stove top, check regularly and stir to prevent a sticky bottom.

·      Remove from oven if in the oven and place on medium high heat on stove top.

·      Make sure the chicken mixture is simmering, add your pasta and cook to package’s directions.

·      Remove from heat and check for seasoning. (Salt and pepper)

Serve and enjoy!

Gluten Free: Exchange the pasta for rice or potatoes.

Note: You do not have to marinate your chicken, I do it most of the time, but not all the time.
