By  | 


  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 medium yellow onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16 oz. dried short-cut pasta
  • 24 oz. jar marinara sauce
  • Water to fill empty marinara sauce jar
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Additional dried Italian seasoning, optional
  • Fresh parsley and/or basil, minced for garnish


  1. In a large pot or skillet, add a drizzle of olive oil and heat over medium-high heat.  Add chicken, season with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.  Cook about 5 minutes, until chicken is most of the way cooked through.  Remove to a plate.
  2. Add onion and garlic to the pot and cook about 2-3 minutes, until soft.  Pour in marinara sauce, fill up empty sauce jar with water and add to the pot.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to a strong simmer.
  3. Add chicken and pasta, stir, and then cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, until pasta is cooked to your liking.  Stir in Parmesan cheese and 1/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese.
  4. Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese on top of the dish and cook another 2-3 minutes, until cheese is melted and gooey.
  5. Sprinkle with additional Italian seasoning if desired, and garnish with parsley or basil.
