Makeover Italian Chicken
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
Great flavor. I omitted the mushrooms since my husband doesn't like them. I did add about 1/2 t salt to the sauce to give it a little extra flavor. I also used the entire packet of Italian dressing mix, what I didn't sprinkle on the chicken I added to the sauce.
This was so good! I couldn't find the cream cheese it called for so used an italian cheese version from Philadelphia & it was delicious! The mushrooms really took it up a notch.
This recipe is very similar to a favorite recipe in our family called Chicken and Sauce. It was the first meal I made my husband after we got married and we fell in love with it. The problem was the original was so fattening though that I hardly ever made it anymore. Now we are able to enjoy this recipe and not feel so guilty when we eat it.
My hubby was very skeptical after looking at the picture. BUT, he was in love after the first bite! Both my 5 and 2 year olds loved it too! It was easy to make. The only thing I did differently was I cut the chicken breast length-wise so it was thinner and therefore cooked quicker. Because I did that I needed to make more noodles. I covered the dish with foil since I didn't have an oven safe lid. Covering it is very important.
