29 Easy Chicken and Pasta Recipes

Chicken and pasta combinations are usually easy to fix, and can often be one-pot meals. Plus, many, such as the casseroles, can often be made ahead of time and baked later in the day or the next day. 

If you don't have leftover cooked chicken, consider using a fully cooked rotisserie chicken, or use the convenient packages of pre-cooked chicken breast strips that can be found in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. A 9-ounce package will yield about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of diced chicken, the perfect amount for many casseroles.
