Quick and Easy Chicken in a Parmesan White Sauce

Recipe by bmcnichol
READY IN: 25mins


  • 12
    ounces wide egg noodles
  • 1
    (1 1/4 ounce) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix
  • 12
    cup half-and-half (may take more)
  • 12
    cup parmesan cheese, add more if you like
  • 12
    cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine
  • 4
    whole boneless chicken breasts
  • 8
    ounces ranch dressing


  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces.
  • Marinate chicken in the 8 ounces of ranch dressing. Marinate for 30 minutes. I normally marinate for about 8 hours (I leave it in the fridge while I am at work).
  • Cook chicken until done.
  • While chicken is cooking, cook egg noodles according to package directions.
  • Drain and add butter.
  • Add the ranch packet, half and half and parmesan cheese and mix well.
  • Add chicken to noodle mixture and serve.
  • If you want a creamier sauce add more half and half. Or if you like more cheese, add it.
  • This also freezes well if you undercook the noodles before freezing.
  • When ready to cook, thaw in the fridge the night before and reheat in the microwave. You may need to add more half and half when reheating.
