I had absolutely NO idea that this would have ever tasted so excellent in a million years. DH even said "This tastes like Chicken Marsala from Carrabas!". So there you have it...its a new winner in the house. This was super simple and well...just simply tasty!
Snappy Smothered Chicken
Adapted from Southern Living Quick and Easy "145 Simple Recipes You'll Love"
1 (8-oz.) package wide egg noodles (whole wheat!)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 (16-oz.) package mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons jarred minced garlic (I used 3 regular garlic cloves, pressed)
1 (10 3/4-oz.) can cream of mushroom soup (Heart Healthy Campbells as usual)
1 cup milk (Add 1/3 cup if not using wine, we used skim here!)
1/3 cup dry white wine (optional)
1 rotisserie chicken, cut into serving pieces (We just grilled some chicken breasts since we had some to use)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Keep warm.
2. Meanwhile, stir together paprika, dried thyme, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and mushrooms, and sauté 8 to 10 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in garlic and paprika mixture; sauté 2 minutes. Add soup, milk, and, if desired, wine, and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
4. Place hot noodles in bottom of bowl, top with your chicken breast and pour sauce over chicken to your taste. Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!
