The full printable recipe is at the end of this post, but let’s walk through the steps with some photos so you have a clear idea of what to expect. This garlic parmesan chicken pasta is easy and these step-by-step instructions will make sure they turn out every time.

Cook Chicken: While the pasta cooks, toss the chicken breast with olive oil, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, dried sage, and red pepper flakes. You could also use Italian seasoning. Sear the chicken for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until the internal temperature reaches just before 165°F. Cooking time will vary based on the size of the chicken. Remove the cooked chicken to a clean plate or cutting board.

Pro tip: if the outside of the chicken is burning before the inside is done, add a Tablespoon of water to the pan at a time.

Ingredients:

1 pound rotini pasta, cooked and drained (save 1 cup of cooking water for casserole)
3 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
2 (15 ounce) jars Alfredo sauce
1 cup garlic parmesan sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish lightly with cooking spray or butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked pasta, chicken, Alfredo sauce, garlic parmesan sauce, half of the mozzarella cheese, and half of the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Add about ½ cup pasta water if needed for extra sauciness.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheese over the top.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Optional: For a golden top, broil for 2-3 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning.
Let cool for 5 minutes before garnishing with chopped parsley, if desired. Serve warm and enjoy!
