30 Minute Meals {Cheesy Chicken and Pasta Recipe}


First let me apologize for this photo.  It was the only one I had available because when we moved from our home I misplaced my camera’s battery cable and  I also lost all the pictures I uploaded onto the computer and had to make due 😦 .  I hope in the near future I’ll be able to show some awesome recipes with even better pics 😀 . Ok now on to the recipe..

Before moving in to our temporary apartment, I made a delicious Cheesy Chicken & Pasta.  Here is what you’ll need:

  • 4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (thawed)
  • Shredded Cheese of your Choice (I used Mozzarella Cheese Blend -the only cheese I had available at the time 🙂 )
  • One bag of pasta (I used Shop Rite Pasta)
  • Cooking Spray
  • Aluminum Foil


Pre-heat your oven to 400°F.  Next tear out sections of aluminum foil (enough to wrap each chicken breast in) and spray with cooking spray.  Place your chicken on each foil and add your cheese.  I used about a 1/4 cup of cheese but you can use as little or as much as you’d like.  Wrap your chicken and place in the oven and cook for 30 minutes.  I like to wrap my chicken individually, that way any left over chicken can easily be frozen and cooked again (left overs rock!)  It also helps with picky eaters, my little one hates cheese on her chicken so I just lightly season hers and bake accordingly 🙂

Next cook your pasta according to package directions.  I usually wait until my chicken is just about ready so that the pasta is not sitting for too long.  I hate when my pasta is cold  or dry!  And if you don’t want pasta this chicken would taste great with steamed vegetables!  That’s it..  Easy peasy!!
