One Pot Caprese Pasta with Chicken …the easiest, most amazing pasta dish ever. Everything get’s cooked together in one pot and is done in 8 minutes!

One pot meals are one of my favorites. They are simple, require little work (with less dishes) and are done in less than 30 minutes! This one pot Caprese pasta should only take you 20 minutes, from start to finish!

This pasta has everything that you love about a Caprese salad. The tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and balsamic! It’s also light on calories, filling and has tons of flavor. I’ve made made this recipe about 3 times in the past month (tweaking a little here and there), and my family still hasn’t gotten sick of it. I also had leftovers and dropped some by a friend who was moving and she said her family all loved it too! You really can’t go wrong with pasta, in my book. ;)

If you want the mozzarella a little more golden, you could also pop it in the oven for a minute or two as well.

    Looks super easy and delicious! We’d leave out the balsamic in my house, but still looks like an amazing weeknight meal.

    You can’t beat one pot dishes…they’re my saving grace most nights! We love Caprese Salads and we eat a ton of chicken so I am sure this will be a big hit in our house! Thanks for the new recipe! :)

      Yes! It’s diced into bite-sized pieces, so it cooks quickly. :)
