Ingredients

  • 1

    lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 2

    cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1

    cup salsa verde

  • 1

    cup heavy whipping cream

  • 2

    cups uncooked penne pasta

  • salt and pepper to taste (about ½ teaspoon each)

  • cups pepper jack cheese, shredded

Directions

1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces (about 1 inch cubes). Season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the chicken in a single layer. Cook for 5 minutes, until golden brown, flipping once halfway through. Remove to a plate and set aside. 2. Add the broth, salsa verde, cream, uncooked pasta, salt and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. 3. Turn off the heat, then add the chicken and 1 cup of cheese to the skillet. Stir until smooth and creamy. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and broil in the over until golden brown and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
