Skillet Barbecue Chicken Pasta with Bacon!
Posted June 27, 2011on:
This was an easy dish to put together and clean up since everything is cooked in one pan.
1/3 pound bacon, cut into one inch slice
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
1 red onion, diced
3 cups water
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 ounces penne pasta
2/3 cup barbecue sauce
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
In a large 12-inch skillet cook the bacon over medium heat until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside, reserving about 1 Tablespoon of the bacon grease. Add the chicken and onions and cook until heated through. Remove the chicken and onions and set aside with bacon.
In the same skillet, add the water, chicken broth, pasta, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, until the liquid is almost absorbed, the pasta is tender and the mixture is thick and syrupy. Stir in the barbecue sauce and sour cream. Add the bacon, chicken, onions, and shredded cheese. Stir to combine and cook until everything is heated through.
