Easy Chicken Alfredo with penne

As ya all know (as you know) I am all for easy meals most days. Especially during the summer so today I bought a Rotisserie Chicken and let the rest up to a recipe from all recipes.  I eliminated the broccoli and zucchini that had been suggested to add to the recipe but feel free to steam some and add it into the mix before serving. Enjoy! :)

The below recipe is as I made it.  I wound up adding the extra milk to make it creamier.

  • 8 ounces dry penne pasta cooked according to directions (al dente )

  • 1- (8 ounce) package cream cheese

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt cream cheese and butter in a skillet over low heat. Stir until smooth. Stir in milk, and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 3 minutes, or until thickened, stirring constantly.
  3. Mix in chicken.  Cook while you reduce heat, and simmer approximately 5 minutes. Toss with drained penne and serve with a light salad.  You can double recipe to make more amount of pasta or for extra sauce.
