One night I came home from work and was like what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight? A quick scan of the pantry and the fridge told me I had chicken, real bacon bits, pasta and OMGEEE, the honey mustard dressing that I had purchased a few days prior. An easy one pan meal was in store for this household of two. I’m a HUGE fan of one pot meals, especially during the busy work week. As much as I love cooking, I hate doing it after a busy day at work. When I cook dinner after work, it has to be fast, simple and produce the least amount of dirty dishes possible. Yes, I still love you, dishwasher. But filling you up with dirty dishes requires time that I just don’t want to giveaway to filling you up.

This meal is ridiculously easy to make. It had to be, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it after work. First you boil some water in a large deep skillet or pan. Then you add some pasta, cook, drain and set aside. Cook some diced chicken and then add onion and bacon bits. Cook those suckas until the onion is tender. Then add the pasta, swiss cheese and honey mustard and mix well. BOOM. Dinner is served. The tummy’s are happy and the dishwasher is crying in a corner because there aren’t a ton of dirty dishes to fill it with.

Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: about 8 cups
Ingredients
  • 8 oz of your favorite pasta. I used large shells.
  • ½ C chopped sweet onion
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ C real bacon bits
  • ½ C shredded Swiss cheese
  • ⅓ C honey mustard dressing
  • Green onion for garnish
Instructions
  1. Bring a large deep pan or skillet of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Add 3 tbsp of olive oil and the chicken to the pan. Season with seasoned salt and ground pepper and heat over medium heat. Saute until the chicken is cooked, about 8-10 minutes. Add the onions and bacon bits and cook (stirring often) until the onion is tender, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and turn off your stove. Add the pasta and ½ C Swiss cheese to the pan and mix well. Mix in the honey mustard. Garnish with green onion, if desired.

  1. I’m a huge fan of one pot meals! They make cleanup so much easier too. I definitely need to add this to my weeknight menu soon. Thanks for including a link to my recipe!

  2. Julie, I have been craving pasta like a crazy person and this looks like just the thing I want to eat for lunch :) Plus, bacon. Yes, please!

  3. Thank you Julie for the nice recipe. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  4. Great recipe, so creative!!!

  5. One-pot meals are totally my jam! Especially if pasta is involved, so yeah this gorgeous dinner is ticking off all my “yum” boxes! Adding this one to the dinner menu! :)

  6. Honey mustard is my fave and pairing it with pasta seems so obvious but I’ve never thought of it! Great Idea!

  7. Yesyesyesyesyesyesyes.
    I LOVE this (although I would boil my pasta separately because I am all impatient and junk – “Two Pots Claire”, that’s me). Looks delicious and pinned for later!

  8. I can’t resist myself when pasta served to me. but i doubt on the mix of honey bacon in it. let’s see after making a try. good luck to me.

  9. I’m thinking leftover chicken or turkey!!!! I’m roasting a turkey breast on Sunday and am always on the lookout for good leftover recipes. this is it! I’ll make extra broccoli and through that in too. Only need to cook the pasta. thanks!
