DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees (unless freezing for later use). Cook pasta in a saucepan of salted boiling water following packet directions or until al dente. Drain.
  • Cut down the length of the corn cobs, close to the core, to remove the kernels. Remove the chicken meat from bones. Discard bones, skin and seasoning. Shred the chicken and place in a bowl.

Place over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until sauce thickens.
