There are few more comforting things than a delicious bowl of buttery pasta. But adding in a healthy protein like chicken makes for a satisfying and crowd-pleasing meal. From supereasy lasagna to bright and bold Vietnamese noodle salad, here are F&W’s ten best-ever chicken pasta recipes: 

1. Easy Chicken Lasagna
Paired with a simple green salad and some crusty bread, this chicken lasagna is an easy weeknight meal.

2. Pasta Shells with Chicken and Brussels Sprouts
Here, mild chicken tames the strength of the sprouts while garlic, lemon juice, red-pepper flakes, and Parmesan unite the two main ingredients and complement them both.

3. Farro Pasta with Chicken Scarti and Borlotti Beans
Farro is an ancient type of wheat that gives pasta a firm bite and sweet, grainy flavor. Chefs Steve Samson and Zach Pollack pair it with hearty, rustic sauces like this one, which gets its richness from quickly sautéed chicken livers.

4. Tagliatelle with Braised Chicken and Figs
This Spanish-inspired pasta from chef Kyle Bailey is rich and complex-tasting, thanks to a sauce made from chicken braising liquid that’s reduced until silky and luscious. 

5. Pappardelle with Chicken Livers and Mushrooms
The humble chicken liver adds depth to this luscious dish.
