Hunters Chicken Pasta Bake






Hunters Chicken Pasta Bake is a delicious and hearty dish that combines the flavors of chicken, bacon, tomato sauce, and cheese, all baked together with pasta. Here’s a recipe to help you make it:



– 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

– 6 slices of bacon, chopped

– 1 onion, diced

– 2 cloves of garlic, minced

– 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes

– 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes

– 1 teaspoon dried oregano

– 1 teaspoon dried basil

– 1/2 teaspoon paprika

– Salt and pepper to taste

– 8 ounces penne pasta, cooked according to package instructions

– 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish).


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set it aside, leaving the bacon fat in the pan.
  3. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and then add them to the skillet with the bacon fat. Cook the chicken for about 6-8 minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it cool slightly before cutting it into bite-sized pieces.
  4. In the same skillet, add the diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté them until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
  5. Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, dried oregano, dried basil, paprika, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir well to combine all the ingredients. Let the sauce simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  6. In a large baking dish, combine the cooked penne pasta, chicken pieces, bacon, and tomato sauce. Mix everything together until evenly coated.
  7. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over the top of the pasta mixture, covering it completely.
  8. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Once the pasta bake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley before serving.

Enjoy your delicious Hunters Chicken Pasta Bake! It’s a comforting and satisfying dish that’s perfect for a family dinner or a gathering with friends.
