This Chicken Pasta Dinner is a crowd-pleaser, that is for sure. Your family will love it, and it’s a fantastic entree to serve guests as well. Chicken Pasta Dinner looks fancy but is very easy to prepare.

The name really doesn’t tell you much about this dish. The truth is, I never really came up with anything unique to call it. Whenever we would have it for dinner, I would say, “you know…that Chicken Pasta Stuff,” and I guess it just stuck.

This recipe can be made gluten-free by replacing the flour with any gluten-free flour or flour blend. I used Bob’s Red Mill Baking Mix. And replaced the pasta with Bionature gluten-free elbows, one of my favorite brands. It doesn’t fall apart, and it’s delicious.

If counting weight watcher points, 1/4 of the recipe with 1 cup of cooked pasta (regular or gluten-free) is 11 points. The pasta counts as 5 points. Serve this with a salad and some fruit, and you’ve got a super satisfying meal.

Here’s a tip – don’t overcoat the chicken pieces with flour, or the sauce will be too thick. Stick to the suggested amounts.
