Things You'll Need
1 pound pasta, any short variety
1 pound chicken breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
2 cups Colby Jack cheese, shredded and separated
1/2 red onion, diced
2-3 scallions, sliced
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
2 cups frozen sweet corn
Step 1: Sauté Chicken
Use 2 tablespoons of oil plus a dash of salt and pepper to sauté chicken over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Save time by using rotisserie chicken.
Step 2: Boil Pasta
While chicken is cooking, boil a large pot of water and partially cook pasta for only 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Step 3: Mix Ingredients
In a large bowl, combine cooked pasta, barbecue sauce, Ranch dressing, corn, onion, scallions, tomatoes and 1 1/2 cups of cheese.
Step 4: Bake
Pour mixed pasta into a buttered casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup of Colby Jack cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.
Step 5: Serve
If you'd like, add a few sprinkles of chopped parsley on top for color and enjoy!
