A One-Pot Creamy Chicken Pasta for Busy Weeknights

December is notoriously busy with holiday activities. Between baking for cookie swaps, shopping for gifts, and attending your kid’s Christmas pageant, it’s hard to find time to cook delicious, satisfying meals. Enter: this creamy one-pan chicken with mushrooms, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and linguine.

Seriously, you can make this dish in just one pan — in under 30 minutes, to boot. Because you’re cooking the dried linguine right in the pan with the other ingredients, you get an irresistibly thick, creamy sauce that perfectly coats the pasta. (The addition of butter, half-and-half, and Parmesan cheese don’t hurt, either.)

With a starch, a protein, some veggies, and some fat, you’ve got a complete meal here that your family will love. And the best part? You only have to wash one pan when dinner’s over.
