Coconut Chicken Broccoli and Peas Pasta

I love an easy one pot meal – the less clean up needed, the better! This is has been my new go-to pasta recipe lately. It only takes a couple minutes to put together and it reheats wonderfully. 

While I don’t live a dairy-free life, this pasta is great is dairy free (if you skip the parmesan topping). While I usually like to make a creamy pasta sauce with heavy cream, this time I used coconut milk. I love that it adds just a hint of coconut flavour while helping coat the pasta in a silky smooth sauce.

What You’ll Need

  • olive oil
  • chicken breast
  • salt
  • onion powder
  • garlic – this is a garlic heavy recipe so use less if you’re not a huge fan of garlic
  • chicken stock

How To Make This One Pot Pasta

  • In a large pot (I use a Dutch oven) on medium heat, add in olive oil and chicken breasts. Season with salt and onion powder and brown the chicken for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  • Add in the chicken stock and coconut milk and increase the heat until the liquid starts to boil.
  • Add in the pasta and lower the heat back to medium. Let the pasta cook for 8-9 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in broccoli and peas, stir and let cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the pasta has cooked through. 
  • Top off with some red chili flakes and shaved parmesan if you wish before serving.

Tips and Notes

  • To meal prep: portion out into airtight containers and let cool before storing in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • If you want your broccoli to be on the softer side, I recommend adding the broccoli into the pot earlier.
  • I cooked my pasta in a 5.5 qt Dutch oven.
