  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white onion diced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic 2 cloves
  • 1 bell peppers diced
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 jalapenos sliced (optional)
  • 10 oz. can diced tomatoes & green chilies 1
  • 2 3/4 cups unsalted chicken broth
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 3 cups whole grain rotini or pasta of choice
  • 1/2 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Place a cast iron (or oven-safe pan) over medium heat with 1/2 tbsp. olive oil. Once the olive oil is heated, add the diced onion, bell peppers, and minced garlic. Saute 3-4 minutes.
  • As the onions caramelize, add the ground chicken, salt and pepper, and remaining seasonings. Stir well and break up the chicken as it cooks.
  • Once the chicken has cooked through, add the sliced jalapeños (optional), diced tomatoes, chicken broth and pasta. Bring to a boil, stir very well and lower temperature to a simmer. Cover and allow to cook 10-15 minutes or until the pasta has softened. Allow for there to be some remaining liquid from the broth.
  • As soon as the pasta is cooked, mix in 1/2 cup greek yogurt and 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Once the cheese has been mixed throughout and melted- top with remaining cheese and jalapeno pepper slices. Place the skillet into the oven for 3-4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. If you do not have an oven-safe skillet/pan, then spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and spoon the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake until cheese has melted.
  • Serve with toppings of choice.
