Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 Pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes
  • 1 can Campbell's Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/2 Cup pesto
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Pound farfalle pasta, cooked and drained

Directions

Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until well browned, stirring often.

Stir the soup, pesto sauce, and milk in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the pasta and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
