I love a short-cut whenever I can get it. I found this online at the Pasta-Roni website because I got a TON of boxes of this stuff and wanted to know a bit more about it. This is SOOO delicious and easy and a fancy way to disguise a box mix. I "from scratch" cooks are about to die, but it's good. Try it before you turn up your nose.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle chicken with Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper.
  2. Cook chicken with oil in large skillet over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes per side or until browned. Remove from skillet; set aside.
  3. Add water, milk to same skillet; bring to a boil.
  4. Stir in pasta and Special Seasonings packet. Place chicken over pasta. Return to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium. Gently boil 4 to 5 minutes or until pasta is tender and chicken is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally.
  6. Sprinkle with chives, if desired.

My whole family raved about this! I left out the black pepper, and still, this was full of flavor! I did find that the pasta was dry after cooking it, but stirring in an extra 1/3 cup milk before serving worked beautifully. Thanks!

I had a box of Pasta-Roni in the freezer for awhile and decided to try this recipe since I did not know what to do with the product. The chicken was excellent and it did go well with the pasta. I liked how simple the recipe is to prepare, but I did not really like the Pasta-Roni (I felt it was sticky). However, DH2B did like it and ate it without hesitation. Since the ingredients do not list veggies, but the directions mention to add them, I went to the Pasta-Roni site and saw that the original recipe called for 2 cups frozen veggies. By the time I got Redneck's zmail that she left them out on purpose, I had already made the dish with the veggies. I liked the veggies in the dish and if I were to make this again I would include them with the pasta. However, I would prepare the pasta product as it states on the box rather then in the pan and then I would add the cooked chicken to the plates.
