Cream Cheese Pasta with Chicken

Posted on: January 7, 2010

This was our take on a cream cheese chicken and pasta recipe. It is a very easy, quick, and comforting weeknight dish. We love garlic so whenever we think something is a little bland, we use it to punch up the flavor, but you could omit it.

Ingredients
4-6 oz long strand pasta (we used angel hair)
1 Tablespoon butter
2 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1/2 red pepper, cut into bite sized strips
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 oz cream cheese (we used neufchatel)
1/4 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of salt

Directions
Set a pot of water on the stove to boil. Once boiling, salt the water and cook pasta according to the directions on the package.

In a medium skillet season chicken and vegetables with Italian seasoning and salt and cook in butter until chicken is cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.

In a small saucepan, combine cream cheese and milk over low heat. Add garlic powder, pepper, and salt, seasoning to taste.

Top drained pasta with chicken mixture and sauce.
