Cheesy Chicken Pasta Toss

"An easy to prepare meal that features a creamy sauce! Total time to table is 30 minutes! I like adding some steamed broccoli to the dish or serving it with broccoli spears and crusty bread. Adjusted from a Simple and Delicious recipe submitted by Margaret Penaflor."

  1. Very easy and very good :) Made just as directed, I added the suggested broccoli, which adds some lovely colour and freshness, and I would have added sliced mushrooms, but realised too late that I'd used them up the night before. This was a quick, easy and delicious midweek dinner, thank you HokiesLady! It was made for Alphabet tag game.
  2. Wow, what a very tasty dish. Definitely a recipe keeper though not one to make every week as it won't help me win the battle of the bulge. Would make a great dish to serve to company though...they will think you slaved in the kitchen even though the dish comes together very easy. I had some fresh sliced mushrooms that I added to the sauce so that they didn't go to waste. Made for the Feb/March 2010 and Special Event Potluck Tag Games.
  3. Superb! Creamy and garlicky. It's hard to believe this was so quick and easy to make. I made this as written, but added about 2 tbsp of the parmesan right into the cream sauce as well as some for sprinkling. I think sliced mushrooms would be great in this. Thanx for posting. I'll certainly make this again. This would be great for dinner guests.
  4. Loved it!
  5. Wow! Simple, creamy, and good. I made this exactly as directed other than halving the recipe. What a great comfort food meal. The next day I added some leftover stir fried veggies and loved it too. Thanks HokiesLady for such a nice keeper. Made for Best of 2010 Tag.


  1. Rave reviews here, but I must admit I did change things. I used ground turkey breast instead of chicken since we had had chicken the night before. I did the garlic in butter, then added the turkey and seasonings. After it was browned, I added the cream (2 cups looked good) and the green onions. Simmered that for a bit and then added a cup of Parmesan cheese. Then added cooked thin spaghetti. it was great! (and I'm sure the chicken way will be, too) Thanks.
