Reviews for Chicken Pesto Penne
"I added veggies & used cream instead of sour cream. Quick tasty meal"
"This recipe was ok, but I like this recipe better from Campbell's, give it a try...Creamy Pesto chicken & Bow Ties2 tablespoons butter4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound), cut into cubes1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's Condensed Cream of chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)1/2 cup pesto sauce1/2 cup milk3 cups bow tie pasta, cooked and drained~Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring often.~Stir the soup, pesto sauce and milk in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the pasta and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling."
"This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes. I add a sprinkle of garlic powder and sometimes when I cook the chicken I add some onion. It is quick, inexpensive and good. I make my own pesto in the summer and freeze it in ice cube trays. Each cube is about 1 tablespoon. Freeze and pop out, put in good freezer bag and take out as needed. It comes out great."
"Loved it! I had been wondering how to turn prepared pesto into more of a cream sauce and this was great. I doubled the recipe for my family of four, but next time I would try tripling the sauce for there to be a little extra to go around. I use the prepared pesto from Costco because I find it the best tasting and I also added some pine nuts on top and it was great!"
"This was very bland and definetely needs some veggies."
"This is a fantastic, quick meal. Stouffer's makes this in a frozen dinner but this is even better."
