1 11x17-inch bake


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 ½ cups chicken broth

  • 2 ½ cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1 (16 ounce) package penne pasta

  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add broth and heavy cream; stir in pasta and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until pasta is tender, about 15 minutes.

  2. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Grease an 11x17-inch baking pan.

  3. Pour 1/2 the pasta mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle 1/2 the Parmesan cheese and 1/2 the mozzarella cheese over the pasta. Layer remaining pasta on top; finish with remaining Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses.

  4. Broil in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
