This is one of those recipes I get asked for continually. If you have left-over chicken and a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, you essentially have your meal. Terrific comfort food recipe for a cold night.
1 16 oz. box of pasta (small shells, rigatoni, penne)
Cooked chicken from approx. 2 breasts, cut up (or any left-over chicken peeled from the bone and chopped)*
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I prefer those with broccoli and cauliflower)
1/2 tbsp. garlic minced
1 1/2 tsp. McCormick montreal chicken seasoning
1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Boil the pasta and set aside. Combine all the remaining ingredients except 1/2 cup of the cheese in a large bowl. Toss in the pasta. Spread in a 12″ x 8″ rectangular baking dish, top with the remaining cheese and bake in preheated 350F oven for 45 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with a salad and some warm biscuits.
