Total Time

This is from Menus4Moms. I think it sounds pretty good; plus easy, quick and done in one pan! Another perk: the macaroni goes in uncooked.

Good quick fix that everyone ate and enjoyed. Was better not served right away, allowed it to thicken up. Was in a hurry so used frozen chopped onions and two cups of frozen chopped bell peppers which worked well. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I was making chicken fajitas and didn't have tortillas, so I quick checked recipezaar and found this recipe. I had cooked the chicken with fajita seasoning,one sliced green pepper and dry onion so I just threw in the noodles, broth and a package of shredded sharp cheddar, simmered and it was great! My kids loved it too!

The directions on this kept making me nervous... I thought the chicken would stick due to the lack of oil. It did, but when I added the chicken broth I was able to deglaze all the important stuff. I also wasn't sure that the noodles would cook well enough in the time stated, but they turned out just fine. I wasn't sure whether to slice the veggies (like fajitas) or chop them, so I sliced the peppers and chopped the onions for my onion-complainers. Overall, this turned out pretty well.
