First, let’s talk about all that I’m thinking about lately. We close on our new house TOMORROW. This has been a crazy, stressful period of our lives and I don’t really see it slowing down anytime soon. Now we have to pick paint colors, tile colors, appliances, etc. Oh and move from the house I’ve lived in for 11 years and accumulated lots of stuff, a husband, a baby, and two cats. Tons of decisions with dollar signs adding up so quick my head is spinning. But, despite it being stressful, they’re fun decisions. Decisions I’m thankful that we have the opportunity to be making.

Since we’ve been so, so busy, all my TV watching and cooking/baking time has been cut to a minimum. One of my favorite channels to watch is Food Network (naturally) and it seems like every time I turn it on at night, Chopped is on. Have you watched it? Chefs are given a basket of ingredients and have to create a meal. I love the concept.

Well, Sargento is hosting a Chopped at Home contest. My “basket” contained boneless skinless chicken breasts, red bell pepper, Greek yogurt, and Sargento® Chef Blends™ Shredded 6 Cheese Italian. I was so thankful I didn’t get any unique ingredients – duck, quail, rhubarb, etc. are ones I’ve seen pop up on the show. I’m persnickety, remember?

Because we’ve been so busy, I knew I wanted to make a quick meal with minimal clean-up. This cheesy chicken pasta skillet comes together in just about 30 minutes and is made all in the same pan.
