Stuck for a dinner idea that the kids will eat and you’ll be able to whip up in about a half an hour?
This one-pot noodle and ground chicken dish will be devoured by all and definitely added to the weekly rotation!
1 lb ground chicken, turkey or beef
1 cup onion, diced
1 tsp EACH paprika, parsley, oregano, garlic powder, salt
½ tsp chili powder
2 tsp tomato paste for extra umami = flavor (optional)
14oz can coconut milk (you can use 1-1/2 cups regular milk or almond if you prefer)
2 cups beef broth
2-1/2 cups short pasta (rotini, penne, cavatappi, whole wheat/ grain or gluten-free work as well)
1 cup cheddar cheese (you can sub in dairy-free cheese as well)
1-2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Preheat a 10″ skillet with a tight fitting lid over medium heat.
Add in your ground meat and diced onion, brown.
Add in all the spices and tomato paste if using.
Stir in the liquids and noodles.
Bring to a gentle simmer, cover, and turn the heat to low.
Simmer about 10-15 minutes until the noodles are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
Remove from the heat, vent the lid, and let rest to absorb the remaining liquid for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the cheese and Worcestershire, taste, add more salt if necessary, enjoy!
*I totally forgot to add the cheese and Worcestershire, but it still tasted awesome!
