This one-pot chicken fajita pasta recipe by Tasty on YouTube is an easy recipe to follow without having to boil the penne noodles separately. I love when the noodles cook in the same pot as the other ingredients because it soaks up all of the flavors. One-pot recipes are convenient and it makes the final cleaning process less hectic. I hate doing dishes and cleaning up a big mess after cooking, but the recipe reduces that time.



  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 3 chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 5 cups milk
  • 4 cups penne pasta
  • 1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded


First, heat oil in a large pot over high heat. Add the chicken and cook until there’s no pink visible, then take the chicken out. Add the bell peppers and onion, cooking the onions until translucent. Add the chicken back to the pot with salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder. Stir until evenly coated.
