When I saw this post from Spicy Southern Kitchen I knew this was something I had to make right away! Who cant resist noodles with chicken and vegetables in a creamy sauce? Comforting any time of the year.
I couldn’t wait to make the next night. I went to the store for a rotisserie chicken. The rest of the ingredients I had.
I did improvise slightly which is something I try not to do when making a recipe for the first time. I added some Herb-Ox No Sodium Chicken Granules which I use in “everything”. I use this in soups, stews, rice pilaf and everything chicken to amp up the chicken flavor. I didn’t measure and just sprinkled some in, but I would estimate a tablespoon or so. The good part of it is, its no salt, so no worries of over salting the recipe.
I also used a little less garlic powder and poultry seasoning. I changed the heavy cream to half and half and used a cornstarch slutty to thicken. Although I love heavy cream it doesn’t like me in the waistline.
Using a rotisserie chicken is the perfect solution. Quick and easy. You could also use leftover chicken.
No matter how you make it….make it. You will not believe how delicious this dish is!
