Chicken Tomato Pasta in the Deep Covered Baker

Quick and easy meals are how I get dinner on the table for my busy family! This Chicken Tomato Pasta cooks up quickly in the microwave.

Yes, I know not everyone has a Deep Covered Baker from Pampered Chef, but those of us who do are always looking for more easy microwave recipes.

I use mine all the time to make Chicken Fajitas, but another go-to meal for us is this Chicken Tomato Pasta. It’s a revision of a Pampered Chef recipe, made simpler by using pantry ingredients.

I usually cook some extra chicken breasts when we have them for another meal, or I can pull some pre-cooked chicken from the freezer and have it thawed out by dinnertime. And I always have canned tomatoes and mozzarella cheese on hand, so it comes together quickly.

Chicken Tomato Pasta in the DCB

This is such an easy recipe to pull together for busy weeknights, and it can be made gluten-free by substituting the pasta with your favorite GF brand.

Just keep an eye on the cooking time–I’ve found that quinoa pasta takes less time to cook.

Yield: 4 servings
