Chicken Noodle One Pot

Chicken Noodle One Pot
You know those nights when everyone in the house is tired and hungry – including you – and you have no idea what to cook? My Easy Chicken Noodle One Pot is perfect for those nights! The recipe takes about 30 minutes to put together and there’s only one pan to wash at the end of it. You probably have all the ingredients on hand right now too!

My Chicken Noodle One Pot is rich, creamy and delicious but as the sauce is made with milk rather than cream it’s better for you. You can even use half fat or 2% milk if you want to reduce the calories even further. Change up the veggies depending on what you have on hand. It also doesn’t matter what shape of pasta you use. Penne or fusilli are my favourites but honestly, it makes absolutely no difference to how the recipe turns out. Tri-colour pasta can make for a very colourful dish and it adds nutrition too.

It’s as easy as browning up some chicken, onions and mushrooms

and then gradually adding the rest of the ingredients and allowing everything to simmer together.

Chicken Noodle One Pot is perfect for last minutes suppers but it’s tasty enough for entertaining as well. Served with a crisp green salad and/or some crusty bread, it doesn’t get much more comforting than this!
