FIESTA CHICKEN SKILLET
Penny Pinching Main Dishes p.118
Serves 4 (1 cup)
All across America, when it was time for Sunday supper, you'd often find a heaping platter of chicken and noodles carried steaming to the table! It's still one of the coziest main dishes anyone can serve, and I love discovering lively new ways to prepare it. This spicy version is a special favorite of my husband Cliff's and my son Tommy's. It must be the salsa!
1 full cup (6-ounces) diced cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup chunky salsa (mild, medium, or hot)
1 (12-ounce) jar Heinz Fat Free Chicken Gravy
2 cups hot cooked noodles, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
In a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, combine chicken, salsa, and chicken gravy. Bring mixture to a boil. Add noodles and parsley flakes. Mix well to combine. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally.
HINT: Usually 1 3/4 cups uncooked noodles cooks to about 2 cups.
