One Pot Easy Creamy Chicken Pasta Recipe

I don’t know about you but of my 3 kids only one eats well the other ones are pretty picky. I have one that is still in the mac and cheese and pizza only stage. But somehow they agree on this dish. My super picky eater will pick out everything and eat only the chicken and pasta but at least he eats it!

With it being a one-pot meal it’s perfect for busy weeknights. You can even cook the chicken ahead of time and freeze it then just pull it out warm it up and mix it all together. Super Easy.

½-¾ lb. skinless boneless chicken breasts
12 oz. Bowtie pasta
1 -14.5  oz. can petite diced tomatoes

½ cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup heavy cream or half and half
