One Pot Manly Cheesy Chicken Penne

One Pot Manly Cheesy Chicken Penne

Serves: 4 servings


  • 1 Tbsp Butter (or margarine)
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 3 Tbsp minced onion
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 15 oz. can Manwich Bold + 1 can water (fill the Manwich can with the water)
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or 1 14.5 oz. can)
  • ½ pound of penne
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used 1 cup regular, 1 cup sharp)
  • ¾ cup cubed Velveeta cheese (or 5 slices)
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Heat butter over medium heat in a deep saute pan. Add onion and garlic and saute for 5 minutes. 
  2. Cut chicken breasts into pieces of desires size. Coat with light amount of salt and pepper.
  3. Add chicken to pot mixture and cook slowly over medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is mostly white and no longer pink.
  4. Add chicken broth, Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce, water and pasta to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for about 25-25 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted throughout, reserving a handful of shredded cheese to sprinkle on the top. Cover for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt, and stir. 
  6. Serve 🙂
