I am a huge fan of one pot meals and this is a great one. Perfect for those days when you don’t want to fuss, but have a little time to let things cook on their own.
Chicken & Gravy Noodle Dinner
|Prep time||10 minutes|
|Cook time||1 hour, 20 minutes|
|Total time||1 hour, 30 minutes|
- 2 tablespoons Chicken Better than Bouillon Base
- 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1/2 can Milk (use soup can)
- 1 can Water (use soup can)
- 1 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
- 2lb Chicken (diced)
- 2-4 cups Vegetables (I chose broccoli)
- 3/4lb Mini Penne Pasta
|In a large pot, mix together chicken bouillon, soup, milk, water and poultry seasoning. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to combine well.|
|Add the chicken and bring mixture back to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour. At this point, you can serve it as it is, pour over rice, over noodles, over potatoes. Very versatile. Or, continue on for a one-pot meal.|
|Add the vegetables and pasta and bring mixture back up to a low boil. Cover and cook on low for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir once, cover and let it set for about 5-10 minutes. Serve hot.|
I got the idea for this recipe while browsing Pinterest. I am so sorry, but I don’t know the link. That recipe was a crockpot recipe that used chicken, chicken gravy packet, soup, and some other ingredients. Well, I didn’t want a crockpot meal (I don’t usually do much crockpot cooking), but the flavors sounded good.
So, I came up with this and it was a hit. I will definitely be making this again and I’m glad I took the time to write it down. Because, likely, I would forget what I did.
So, here you go. You can make it as a one-pot meal like I did, or just use the chicken and gravy and pour it over mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles.
