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 ;)
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!!! :)
