Chicken with White Sauce and Pasta

4 from 1 reviews

Ingredients

Scale

34 Chicken Breast – I prefer marinated chicken – refer to notes below
16 oz. Pasta – Any noodle type works (linguine, fettuccine, or spaghetti)
8 oz. of Cream Cheese
4 Tbsp butter
1 & 1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 Cups of Milk
3 oz. of Parmesan cheese ( you can add more to thicken, if you need it)

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, melt butter
  • Whisk in the cream cheese
  • Add garlic powder
  • Stir in the milk
  • Let thicken as you stir occasionally
  • Before serving, mix in the Parmesan cheese
  • The sauce will thicken more as it cools – If it becomes too thick, add a little milk & heat it up again to thin it out

Chicken:

  • The best way to prepare it to grill the chicken & slice into cubes or strips
  • If a grill is not available – use a large skillet over medium heat, cut into strips, and fry in a little olive oil – turning to cook both sides evenly. Chicken is done when inside is white and juices run clear

Pasta:

  • Cook to your preference – I always go a little past Al-Dente.

Notes

Marinating your chicken breast – I actually use a steak marinade from the seasoning aisle. It’s called Montreal Steak Seasoning – my kids love the flavor & so do we. 

  • In a large ziptight bag, add red wine vinegar 2 Tbsp, Water 2 Tbsp, Oil 1 Tbsp, Seasoning 1 Tbsp and chicken breast
