This Creamy Chicken Asparagus Penne Pasta is a marvelous dinner recipe that’s filled to the brim with fresh veggies and tender pasta in a light and creamy sauce.
A couple weeks ago I was in Las Vegas at a conference, learning all the things, but really just wanting to eat all the things. One evening we went to Yard House, right by the Quad hotel on the strip and I ordered their Chicken Penne.
It was filled with tender chicken, fresh asparagus and was tossed in a deliciously creamy sauce.
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it… so I made my own version!
I cut up pieces of chicken thighs for this recipe, but chicken breast would also work.
I tossed the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little paprika, then cooked them up in a hot skillet.
Next I took the chicken out of the skillet and tossed in loads of fresh cut veggies.
Asparagus was the main player, but sliced mushrooms, diced bell pepper and onion also made their way in there.
While the pasta was cooking, and after the chicken and veggies were already cooked, I made a quick creamy sauce in the same skillet.
I love making sauces in the same skillet that the food has been cooked in. It brings all the flavors together!
Once you add all the pasta, veggies and chicken back into the pan with the creamy sauce, just give it a few stirs to coat and get heated through.
You’re going to love this delicious dish!
