I made this meal all through college! It is so good, and pretty healthy too!
Here’s what you need:
- 12 oz. Bowtie Pasta
- 1-2 lb. shredded chicken (you can get a rotisserie chicken, boil split chicken breasts, or boil boneless skinless)
- 8 oz. fresh mushrooms
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1/2 cup frozen onions
- your favorite caesar dressing (I use Ken’s Creamy Caesar) OR pesto sauce
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (just to add to the top)
- 1/2 stick of butter (4 TBsp)
Cook & drain 12 oz. bowtie pasta (this is really preference- you could do anywhere from 8-16 oz depending on how much pasta you want)
Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Once melted, add onions and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Then add mushrooms and sauté along with onions for 4-5 minutes. Finally, add peas and sauté for about 2 minutes more minutes. Remove from heat.
Cook and shred chicken. You have several ways you can do this. 1- get a rotiserie chicken 2- boil split or boneless chicken breasts and shred 3-cook split or boneless chicken breasts in the crockpot & shred
Combine it all & add parmesan cheese (again preference on how much you want on it, if at all)
From here, again you have 2 choices. You can serve hot (everyone else’s favorite) with pesto sauce or caesar dressing. Or you can eat it cold (my favorite) with pesto or caesar dressing. Enjoy!
