Penne Pasta with Marinara Sauce and Chicken Chunks Recipe

I’ve made this way too many times to not share. Tangy marinara sauce with chicken chunks and tender penne noodles; this dish is too good to resist.

How To Make Penne Pasta with Marinara Sauce and Chicken

  • 8 oz penne pasta (cooked & cooled)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 3 oz red onions (chopped)
  • 24 oz marinara sauce
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (roughly 20 oz total, cut to chunks)
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • Salt & ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Parmesan cheese & chopped parsley
  1. In a hot pan over medium heat, saute the garlic and onions in melted butter for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken chunks & italian seasoning. Saute until it is brown and cooked all the way through.
  3. Once the chicken is done, add the marinara sauce and stir till everything is well combined.
  4. Allow the sauce mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Adjust accordingly.
  5. Add in the cooked pasta and toss to combine
