  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced garlic, divided
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1½ cups crushed tomatoes
  • 8 ounces whole-wheat penne
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add panko and 1 teaspoon garlic. Cook, stirring, until the panko is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Wipe out the pan.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken, Italian seasoning, salt and the remaining 1 tablespoon garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside, about 2 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes and penne. Bring to a boil and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until the penne is cooked and the sauce has reduced and thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, position an oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the broiler to high. When the pasta is cooked, sprinkle mozzarella over the penne mixture. Place the pan under the broiler; broil until the mozzarella is bubbling and beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Top with the panko mixture, Parmesan and basil.

I couldn’t find whole wheat Pablo so I subbed regular panko. This recipe was really good and we will definitely make again!

Was very blah tasting to me. I ended up adding a meatless pasta sauce and then I was able to eat it

I just made this dish for dinner tonight. It was hands down one of the easiest and most delicious one pan chicken meals I’ve ever made! Even my pickiest eater devoured it. I didn’t have whole wheat pasta on hand so substituted protein enriched penne and regular bread crumbs for panko but aside from that I followed the recipe exactly. Definitely adding this recipe to the weekly dinner rotation!
