Step By Step Directions To Follow: 

  1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the chicken and cook until golden brown. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the broth, salsa verde, cream, uncooked pasta, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat, add the chicken and 1 cup of cheese. Stir until smooth and creamy. Top with remaining ½ cup cheese and broil in the oven until golden brown for about 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

This spicy, cheesy, pasta won’t leave you disappointed. It’s definitely more classy than your usual macaroni and cheese.
