Cheddar Cheese Chicken Pasta Bake

Cheddar Cheese Chicken Pasta Bake
  • 1 (16 ounce) package rotini pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (16 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese, or as desired
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Toss in chicken, onion powder, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and black pepper. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Whisk chicken broth and flour together in a bowl until well blended. Pour over the chicken in the skillet. Add half the Cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, cream, butter, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce; stir to combine. Continue stirring over medium heat until sauce starts to thicken, about 10 minutes. Stir cooked pasta into skillet.
  5. Pour chicken-pasta mixture into a glass baking dish. Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is bubbly and melted, about 15 minutes.
