Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. I love chicken and pasta, but sometimes I don't feel like handling raw chicken and cooking it up. This recipe lets you skip that step, and you don't have to wait for the noodles to cook all the way! It's fast, easy, and delicious for kids and adults. You can also add in any veggies you like, or bacon bits to spice it up a little. This recipe feeds four, but is very easy to double for a bigger family.
