Sharing is caring!

This week I’ve got a yummy, quick dinner recipe for you!  One of the favorites in our home, Creamy Pesto Chicken Pasta. 

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

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, add 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.

Once the sauce is gently bubbling, 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.
