Easy Chicken Fajita Pasta Recipe

Today was one of those days where I looked in the fridge, and it was almost empty, and really did not feel like cooking. It was time for something fast and super easy. I spotted the bell peppers, onion, and chicken. What else would that scream other than “fajitas”? And that, my friends, is how this quick one-pot meal was born.

One pot meals are my faves, because I hate washing dishes, especially pots and pans, since you can’t really put those in the dish washer. I love cooking simple meals, especially the ones that take very little effort because even though I’m a food blogger I still prefer to not slave over the stove in the middle of the summer, I’d much rather be outside on my deck reading a good book and soaking up some sunshine.


  • Chicken breasts – Thighs will work too. Make sure you use boneless and skinless chicken.
  • Fajita seasoning – Store-bought or homemade.
  • Olive oil – Canola, grapeseed, vegetable, safflower, sunflower, or avocado oils can be used instead.
  • Onion – Any type you like best.
  • Bell pepper – I used a green bell pepper but any color will work.
  • Garlic – As much or little as you like.
  • Milk – Any milk will work, I used 2%.
  • Chicken broth – Or whatever type of broth you have on hand.
  • Pasta – I used mini shells, but other shaped pasta would work too such as penne, rigatoni, farfalle, or ziti.
  • Salt & pepper – Season to taste, if necessary.
  • Parmesan cheese – Pecorino, Grana Padano, or Romano will all work instead.
