Crustless Chicken Pot Pie Pasta Skillet tastes like a pot pie that’s been in the oven for hours. It’s the perfect way to enjoy all the yumminess of a pot pie without the crust!
While everyone is trying to use their grill as much as possible these last few weeks of summer, I’m over here in the kitchen making dishes that bring me warmth and comfort. I was in the mood for chicken pot pie, but I didn’t want to put forth the effort to make one. I mean, yea I can buy a pre-made crust, but sometimes it’s hard finding one that Kelsie can have because of her allergies, so I opted to make a skillet meal instead. After all, I love dishes that I can just throw together in a pan, and sort of forget it. One pan meals are my favorite!
I cooked the chicken prior to making this dish, but you can certainly use a rotisserie chicken instead. I just didn’t feel like getting dressed and going to the store, because I had spent the entire day cleaning house and washing laundry. Since I had chicken thawed out in the fridge, I just seasoned it with an all purpose seasoning, cubed it up, and cooked it in the same pan that I was going to make this meal in. This dish doesn’t have to be complicated. I used whatever pasta I had on hand, meaning I would have broken up spaghetti noodles to use, if that was all I had. 🙂 You’re really going to love this recipe because it tastes just like a chicken pot pie, but without all that time and effort.
