Delight in the flavors of our Skillet Chicken Bake, a dish that seamlessly blends hearty pasta, savory cheese and tender chicken. Perfect for both intimate dinners and larger gatherings, this recipe is sure to become a favorite.

Start by preheating your oven to 400°F. On the stovetop, warm a touch of olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet. Add your diced chicken, seasoning it with salt, pepper and a mix of Italian herbs.

While the chicken sizzles, cook your tortellini to al dente perfection. Once done, they're ready to join the skillet party. Add in slices of pepperoni, fresh spinach and your chosen sauce, stirring to ensure every ingredient is well-coated and mingling.

But what's a bake without cheese? Sprinkle a generous amount over the top, letting it melt and bubble in the oven to create a golden, mouthwatering crust.

After a brief stint in the oven, your Skillet Chicken Bake is ready. Rich, flavorful and comforting, it's a dish that promises satisfaction with every bite.

  3. Stir pepperoni, spinach, sauce and tortellini into skillet.
