I like to have "pantry dinners" in my bag of tricks for when I need something easy for dinner.
My friend "pinned" this chicken recipe and I thought I would give it a try.
A quick note on Pinterest ~ I don't get it. I mean I understand the concept, but whenever I try and find something I just get 500 "pins" of the same thing. When I click on a "pin" to get more info I'm inevitably sent to another board with nothing more than the same pic and link to another board. Ugh
Anyhoo... my friend's pin showed up facebook, I clicked and found this easy and surprisingly tasty recipe. If you need an easy meal that is made with stuff you probably you hand give this bad boy a try
Chicken Ala Tiffani (aka Italian Chicken)
4 Chicken Breasts
8 oz lite Cream Cheese
1 can Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
1 packet of Italian Dressing Mix
12 oz Whole Grain Pasta
Now the original "pin" had this as a crockpot recipe and while it worked okay, I think if you sauteed the chicken in some garlic and EVOO it would add some nice additional flavor (if veggies are your thing, throw in a couple of those as well)
For the crockpot ~ combine the first 4 ingreds in the crockpot and cook on low for 4 hours and then serve over cooked pasta.
Now while this isn't going to win you Top Chef, it was tasty enough to get the thumbs up from the kiddos so that is "winner" in my book.
