Chicken Parmesan pasta skillet – all the flavors of classic chicken Parmesan in a quick and easy one pan meal. Dinner tonight is sorted!

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite dinners ever, especially to order at a restaurant. But it can be a process to make at home, especially if you want to do it right.

So here is a fun pasta skillet that gives you all the same flavors in a new and different way. Or you can go with this Chicken Parmesan Sandwich for another twist!

Getting dinner on the table night after night can be a job in itself.  Pleasing everyone in the family, with their different tastes, likes, and even different schedules.  Sometimes you just want to throw in the towel and let everyone fend for themselves.

To get all the flavors of this classic dish, but get it on the table in about 20 minutes, I used ground chicken! Cooks in no time, and gives you all the flavor you are looking for.

How To Make Chicken Parmesan Pasta

  1. Use a large skillet and start by heating the oil over medium high heat. Once it is hot add the ground chicken and onion. Cook for about 5 minutes, breaking apart the chicken and cooking until the onions are soft.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, until you can just start to smell it.
  3. Stir in the uncooked pasta, marinara sauce and water. Bring everything to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Cook for 10-12 minutes until the pasta is cooked.
  4. Stir in both cheeses until everything is melted and comes together.
  5. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the top. And place under the broiler to get them golden brown.
  6. Serve immediately.

Chicken Parmesan is known of the crispy coating on the chicken. To get this texture, you sprinkle the breadcrumbs on the top and then put it under the broiler. If you truly want a one pot, one step dinner, you can skip this step. Make sure you are using an oven safe skillet if you are putting it under the broiler.

Getting dinner on the table on busy weeknights can be tough, but with this chicken parmesan pasta it doesn’t have to be. Even your picky eaters will be coming back for more.
