Creamy Leftover Chicken Surprise
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
6 servings
I invented this recipe a long time ago and make it when I have leftover chicken. It's quick and made with simple ingredients. Feel free to make substitutions and experiment with it. Fresh or frozen broccoli. Cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom. Any type of cooked chicken will do, but I prefer breast. If the leftover chicken has been marinated or seasoned, it will be a bonus. Any type of small pasta. Cheeses are flexible as well. I often use a combination of whatever I have on hand. Just be sure its sliced or shredded so that it melts quickly.It's a great all in one meal to keep on the stove on nights when family members are coming and going at different times.
