41. Creamy Chicken and Noodles
It came in handy tonight...and this dish was divine. It was a cinch to put together and used many ingredients you probably already have on hand.
For as little as it cooked, it had tons of flavor, thanks to the Italian dressing mix. It had a "baked casserole" feel to it...a plate of comfort food. Next time, I think I'll add in fresh broccoli florets in with the boiling pasta to give the dish more color and texture...and get a veggie in for a complete meal.
1 (8-ounce) package egg noodles
2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 (0.6-ounce) envelope Italian dressing mix
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain well and return noodles to pan.
Stir in butter and toss to coat. Stir in remaining ingredients and cook mixture over medium-high heat, tossing to coat evenly, for 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
