After reading the title of this recipe, we just had to try it to see if it checked out. And it did. This baked pasta dish from RecipeTinEats has all the feels of comfort cooking with none of the effort. Perfect for lazy Sundays.


To make, you'll start by seasoning the chicken with salt and pepper. You'll then assemble the baking dish by adding pasta, flour, milk, broth, garlic, and butter. Then you'll top with chicken and broccoli, and bake in the oven, removing partway to add cheese.

  • 14oz chicken tenderloin/breast
