Prep Time 20 d
Cook Time 15 d
Servings 4


  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lb penne pasta
  • 2 cup roasted corn trader joes frozen is great
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 cup broccoli chopped, sub any green veggie
  • 4 oz cream cheese could sub greek yogurt
  • 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • Start by boiling the water for the pasta! I find that this always takes the longest!
  • Prep the rest of the ingredients! If using raw chicken, cook it now and chop into 1 inch chunks! Cook bacon if needed, and chop broccoli (this will cook in the pan).
  • Add that pasta to the boiling water and cook according to package instructions! Save 1 cup of pasta water before draining!
  • Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to the pan and toss in the chopped broccoli! Cook for about 5 minutes until a little charred! Add in corn and bacon and the pasta water! Bring to a simmer then add in cream cheese! Stir to melt.
  • Add in chopped chicken and cooked pasta! Cook together for about 3-5 minutes and season with salt and pepper! Turn off the heat and stir in parmesan cheese! Serve and enjoy!
