Do you want to try a new pasta recipe but need ways to keep it healthy? I have just the thing to make that happen. Trade out your regular pasta for Barilla Gluten-Free and make a meal your whole family will enjoy.  Who says gluten-free meals have to be bland or boring?  This 20 minute, 10-ingredient, Chicken Burrito Skillet is nothing short of a flavor explosion. I’m not kidding. It’s seriously tasty. Even if you’re not currently on a gluten-free diet, this pasta will amaze you with its flavor and texture. It’s made of a blend of corn and rice and fits naturally into the recipe we are featuring today for a healthful and delicious Chicken Burrito Skillet.

 

Unlike other gluten-free pasta brands, Barilla has a great flavor and a texture like semolina pasta. It’s certified gluten-free and is produced in a dedicated gluten-free facility so there are no worries of cross-contamination here, folks. What’s important to me though is that it’s made with non-GMO ingredients. Barilla’s dedication to quality is a brand I feel good about feeding my family. I first found Barilla gluten Free pasta when I was shopping at BJ’s wholesale and picked up a 4-pack to give it a try for some of our pasta skillet dinners, like this Chicken Burrito Skillet. Visit BJ’s Wholesale Clubs on December 22nd and 23rd to see an in-store Barilla Gluten Free pasta demo at select clubs. You’ll have a chance to taste just how good this product is for yourself.

This recipe for One-Pan Chicken Burrito Skillet is one of my favorites. It’s packed with flavor and incredibly easy to make. It combines chicken, pasta, black beans, and salsa with classic Mexican spices. It’s so delicious and the best part is, everything cooks in just one pan, even the pasta. This one-pot meal was a huge hit with my family and takes just 20 minutes to make which is quicker than you can drive to the local cantina. ;)

  1. This looks delicious! I’m a big fan of Barilla…their pasta is the only kind I buy. I have yet to try their Gluten Free version…my pantry is packed with their Pronto pasta. Next trip to the grocery store, I’ll pick up their gluten free to give it a try! Sending some foodie love your way on this yummy recipe too!

    • Thanks, Michelle! I do like Barilla. This gluten free pasta was the best I’ve tried so far. It worked very well with this dish which tasted just like a burrito in a skillet dinner which is a family favorite.
