Creamy Chicken and Noodles

A few weeks ago my mom and I were talking about "birthday meals" - the dinners that we would always ask her to make for us on our birthday.  My brother always wanted to go out to eat ribs and every year I asked for her creamy chicken and noodles.  The chicken thighs are AMAZING and the creamy noodles are the perfect side.


- 1/2 pound of spaghetti, cooked al dente
- Two cans cream of mushroom soup
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- a clove or so of minced garlic
- 5 or 6 chicken thighs
- chopped onion
- grated Parmesan cheese


Step 1 - Saute some onion with garlic and butter until they're soft and translucent.


Step 2 - Break the spaghetti noodles in half and cook them al dente


 Step 3 - Once the onions are done, put the chicken thighs in for a few minutes on each side until they're starting to brown.  I pulled the skin off all but one of them and threw the skin in the pan to add some flavor while they browned ;)


Yes ma'am.

Step 4 - Pour in 1 cup of milk and two cans of cream of mushroom soup.  Stir until it's all combined.



Step 5 - Put the noodles on the bottom of a 9x13 and then top with the thighs.


Step 6 - Throw the sauce on top.  Gently mix it through, lifting the chicken and making sure sauce goes under the pieces as well.


Step 7 - Sprinkle on some grated Parmesan.


Step 8 - Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes.  The edges will be nice and crispy and delicious.


Step 9 - Serve and enjoy!!!


Happy Thursday, friends!!! :)

  14. A nice variation of the chicken recipe that calls for the dehydrated Lipton Soup mix and raw rice. I think I will like your recipe better. I do have a question: I am not clear if you used (for flavor) the skin you pulled off the chicken or the skin of the one thigh you left the skin on. Did you ever pull the skin off that one thigh or is there someone in the family that likes the skin left on?
