Creamy Chicken n Noodles
Loved this recipe! I get a magazine called Simple and Delicious made by Taste of Home. I love it. It was one of the best gifts I ever recieved and I have had it for years now. Gets me out of my ruts! Once I know a recipe by heart I know its time to start looking for new ones!! This recipe was submitted by a Donna Arerley from NY. THANK YOU DONNA!
Of course I have adjusted the recipe to fit my large family.... :0) the original is just Half this recipe...This feeds my family of 7 with enough left over for one person for lunch the next day. See I fixed my hubby lunch!
You will need:
16 oz bag of uncooked Egg Noodles
6-8 Boneless Chicken Breast
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
3-4 tbsp Olive Oil
2 cups Sliced Mushrooms ( I normally leaves these out cuz no one in my family will eat them but ME!! ) Poor poor me....
2 tsp garlic powder or minced garlic (I use garlic powder cuz I never have minced garlic...)
2 cans cream of chicken
2 cans cream of mushroom
1 1/4 cup half n half cream
1/2 cup chicken broth (I also never have this so I use 1/2 c. hot water with one chicken bullion cube dropped in which makes it more chickeny...is that a word? Probably not! HEE HEE)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup fresh minced parsley (never have this either...its fresh and it always goes bad beofre I use it so I use the dried parsley)
So now that we are past all the ingredients I don't use.... :0) On with it...
Cook noodles according to package directions. Great picture right?
Meanwhile flatten chicken to 1/4 inch thickness. When I first made this I got chicken every where... yes I am a slooooow leaaarnerrr.... I now use a sandwich bag over the chicken to help contain the mess. Works like a charm. See my lovely picture?
Sprinkle with salt n pepper. In a large skillet, cook chicken in the 2 tablespoons of oil. Do this in batches. When your done with the first batch throw 2 more tablespoons of oil in and do the 2nd batch! Cook chicken on each side for 5-7 minutes or until juices run clear, remove and keep warm. Best picture yet!
I actually will cook them all, put them on a plate covered with paper towels and zap them in the microwave for 6 mins or so to really make sure they are cooked all the way thru....I am always rushing so for me this makes it safer for my family! Shhhh did you hear that? I think several chefs just fainted from hearing that! Sorry CHEFS!
In the same skillet saute mushrooms and garlic in remaining oil till tender....I really wish I could eat my mushrooms... :0( So since I skip this part no picture and I add the garlic in the next step :0) Stir in the soups, cream, broth, garlic and chili powder until blended. Heat through. Stir in 1/2 c. parsley. I am partial to this picture.
Next: DISH AND SERVE BABY!!! OH YEAH SO YUMMY!
Sauce. THE END!! Now go pig out!
I need to figure out a way that you can print the recipe without all the pictures.... Any ideas let me know! I try to do this as free as possible...cuz FREE IS FREAKING AWESOME! Also if you would like to post recipes send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the publishers! Thanks to Tara for the Great Idea!
