One Pot Chicken and Noodles Skillet is a quick and easy dinner recipe that is ready in less than 30 minutes, and only requires washing one skillet!
I feel like pretty much every one of my dinner recipes lately could say, “We were running behind; I was frazzled and had no idea what to make for dinner, so this is what I came up with.”
Once upon a time, I used to be a meal planner. And honestly, I loved that. I don’t know what my problem is these days, but I just can’t seem to get my act together and plan my meals. Because of this, I end up with a lot of thrown together meals, which I recognize isn’t ideal.
However, throwing meals together has resulted in a lot of delicious dinners, so I guess it has some perks. Such is the case of this One Pot Chicken and Noodles Skillet.
This is a deliciously simple one pot recipe, which is always a bonus for me. After making dinner, washing a thousand dishes just doesn’t appeal to me, so I love a recipe that only requires washing one pan!
I make this one pot chicken recipe in my Lodge cast iron skillet (affiliate link), because I love how evenly cast iron cooks. You can make it in any pot or skillet, so long as the skillet is deep.
This recipe was loosely inspired by a recipe from American Beauty pasta, but I changed much of it. I basically just followed the cook times and liquid amount, since I wanted to make sure the pasta ended up cooked well, while still having a sauce on it.
