    SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in the sour cream, parsley, salt and pepper. Stir in chicken. (If you want a creamier texture, place the cream cheese, sour cream and chicken in a food chopper) In a small skillet, cook onion in butter until tender; add to chicken mixture. Stuff into manicotti shells. (To make this easier, put mixture into a baggie, seal it up, cut the tip off of corner of bag and pipe into tube.).
    2. 2
      In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and salt until smooth. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in 2-1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese and 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese just until melted.
    3. 3
      Spread about 1/2 cup cheese sauce in each of two greased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. dishes. Top with stuffed shells and remaining sauce.
    4. 4
      Cover and bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Yield: 7 servings.

      I left out the onion and added a little garlic powder and milk to the filling but otherwise made it just as the recipe said. It was really good. My husband, who can't stand sour cream, gobbled it up. I just didn't tell him the ingredients. I think this is my new favorite meal!

      I made some changes (added dry Italian herbs to the sauteed onions, deglazed the pan with white wine, used 6 cups of milk instead of 3 1/2 for the sauce, played with amounts of cheese), but overall this was a great jumping off point for a delicious dish.
