Chicken Pot Pie Pasta Ingredients
Another favorite weeknight meal is my Spaghetti Carbonara. It makes a great dinner and then can easily transform into lunch for the next day!
This chicken pot pie pasta has many of the ingredients from the traditional recipe plus pasta, of course!
This is what you’ll need to make this recipe:
- pasta: use any tubed or shelled pasta: penne, rotini, macaroni, etc.
- butter: cooked with aromatic vegetables and makes the base for the pan sauce.
- yellow onion: or white onion, just as long as onions are involved.
- celery: an aromatic vegetable cooked down with onions and butter.
- poultry seasoning: adds that “pot pie” flavor to the sauce.
- all-purpose flour: whisked into the cooked vegetables and helps thicken the sauce.
- chicken broth: combined with the flour-coated veggies and simmered to create the “sauce”.
- mixed vegetables: the quintessential pot pie veggies- frozen peas, carrots, and corn. You can find this combo in the frozen section of your grocery store.
- rotisserie chicken: my #1 kitchen hack to save time with recipes that include pre-cooked chicken. You can also use any leftover cooked chicken from a previous meal- you’ll need 2 cups chopped.
Don’t have a rotisserie chicken or leftovers, but want to make this recipe tonight? Pan-sear boneless chicken breast in the same skillet, remove it from the pan and cook the tidbits left with the veggies for added flavor.
Simply give the chicken a rough chop before stirring it into the veggies and sauce.
