Sharing is caring!

My girls and I love pasta, but even the guy-folks in my house will eat this recipe.  It’s a very quick recipe & great with leftover chicken.

1/2 lb. Pasta (your favorite shape)


1 tbsp. butter

leftover or rotisserie chicken cut or shredded

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/2 c. of pesto sauce

1/2 c. milk

Once your water is boiling, at a little salt and your pasta & cook as your packaging directs.

Put your butter in a large skillet over medium heat and melt.  Toss in your chicken till it’s browned a bit.

Dump in your can of cream of chicken soup.  Mix till chicken is evenly coated.

Add your milk and pesto sauce. Stir till combined.

Lower your heat to simmer while  your pasta finishes.

Strain your pasta when finished and dump into pesto mixture.

Stir well and leave on a low for another minute or two.

Serve your YUMMY pasta dish!

  1. Hi, Maryann – I've had this recipe saved in my to-make list for a couple months, and just got a chance to make it tonight. I'm always looking for stuff I can prep ahead of time, or make really quickly when I get home from work, and this definitely applies. So good, and so easy – thanks for sharing!
