One Pot Chicken Jalapeno Pasta

Finally had our first snowfall this week.  Winter is not my favorite season, but I do love warm dinners and hot chocolate on a chilly evening.  I am also looking forward to seeing the Elk at Hardware Ranch and sledding.  Now that snow has fallen I am getting in the holiday mood.  Time to put up the decorations and start baking.  This time of year gets busy with school programs, family parties and work gatherings.  I love every second of it.

Sign me up for any meal I can make in just one pan.  I would rather not spend all night doing dishes, so this kind of recipe is awesome.  There is so much flavor in this dish.  I think the main reason is the pasta is cooked with all the other ingredients so those flavors are absorbed by the pasta.  This is a great weeknight dinner.  You can have it on the table in 30 minutes or less.

Saute bacon and remove most of the excess grease (leave a little).

Add the jalapeño, pasta, rotisserie chicken and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil stirring every so often so the pasta cooks evenly, for 10-12 min. Most of the broth will be absorbed by the pasta.

Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese and most of parmesan.  Save some parmesan to sprinkle on top.
