Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, saute cooked chicken and garlic in olive oil. Turn to low heat to keep warm while you're cooking the pasta.
  2. Place the pasta in a large pot with the milk, butter and salt. Bring to a boil over med-hi heat, stirring almost constantly to prevent the milk from scorching.
  3. When it comes to a boil, turn down to medium heat and stir constantly until pasta is tender and the starch from the pasta has thickened the milk into a creamy sauce. There shouldn't be any liquid left over, it should be like white sauce.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in chicken/garlic.
  5. Serve immediately…sprinkling Parmesan cheese on each serving.
  6. To make Three Cheese Garlic Chicken:
  7. Follow recipe as above, except before adding chicken to cooked pasta, remove from heat and add 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and 3 oz. cream cheese.
  8. Stir until cheese has melted then add chicken and serve with Parmesan cheese.
