One Pan Tomato Basil Chicken Linguine is the easiest one pan meal I’ve ever made. Everything is cooked in one pan and it creates it’s own sauce as it cooks. This meal is ready in under 20 minutes making it perfect for those busy weeknights.
1small onionor half a large onion, cut into thin slices (about ¾ cup)
1pintcherry or grape tomatoesslice in half lengthwise
1poundboneless skinless chicken breastcut into bite-sized pieces (about 2 breasts)
8-10fresh basil leaves
1/2teaspooncrushed red pepper flakes
4ouncesParmesan Cheesefresh, shredded
In a 5 quart saute pan or skillet, arrange onion slices, minced garlic, tomatoes, chicken, pasta, basil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Drizzle olive oil over the ingredients in the pan, then pour in water. Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, simmering and stirring for about 9 minutes or until pasta is tender. There will be some liquid left in the pan - this will help to create the sauce.
Add Parmesan cheese and toss to coat while the cheese melts.
Serve immediately, garnished with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
