Creamy, easy chicken and noodles is a basic jumping off recipe for something more advanced or you can simply serve as is.
As a busy mom of 5 teenagers, I am always on the lookout for a hearty but easy meal.
I have super picky eaters so I like to take basic recipes and then rock them out a little with my kids favorite ingredients.
I love this chicken and noodles recipe when I’m trying to come up with a last minute meal.
Not to mention, it is one of those versatile dishes that can be changed up depending on what you might have as leftovers.
We have substituted the chicken with leftover pulled pork, turkey, steak and even seafood.
We have substituted the cream of chicken soup and used cream of mushroom, cream of celery, cheddar cheese, etc.
Add fresh or frozen vegetables. We love add spinach to this dish because it’s so mild and a good choice for my picky eaters.
I usually season it up with some garlic and almost always some Italian Seasoning.
Try different herbs like Basil, Rosemary, Oregano or spices to make a spicier cajun style dish.
Change the pasta noodles, if you don’t really like egg noodles. Try penne, or serve with spaghetti noodles or angel hair.
Anyway you serve this, the pickiest eaters will love it as is, and you can choose how to make it better.
