Hello friends! I’m back this week with another one pan wonder. Another favorite chicken recipe. Another meal you should add to your menu ASAP. I present to you the One Pan Creamy Basil Chicken Pasta! And omg it’s beyond good!
I was scrambling to find something to make before Game of Thrones and just threw what I had in the fridge together to make a quick meal. And thankfully this was one of those meals that just worked. I was able to have the meal ready, be sitting down and enjoy it with plenty of time before GoT started. And yes, I am an uber nerd and LOVE GoT. And I won’t spoil this week’s episode but OMG!!!!!! This show never disappoints!
And yes, I’m still going by the theory that R+L = J. And if you don’t know what that means and are a fan, you have been warned to not google it if you don’t like spoilers!!
So if you are looking for an easy week night (or pre-Game of Thrones) dinner, then please try this one! I promise you won’t be disappointed! It also makes great leftovers as Tai can tell you 😉
