Whether you have leftover chicken or a cooked rotisserie chicken, both would work great in this recipe. I used the chicken breasts from a rotisserie chicken
The creamy sauce is made using chicken broth, skim milk and flour. No need for cream of chicken soup!
For this skillet meal I used kluski noodles but you could also use egg noodles if you prefer. One of my daughters doesn’t like egg noodles so I try not to use them if I’m cooking for her too.
To make this easy skillet meal I started by bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once the water is boiling add the noodles and cook until al dente.
While I was waiting for the water to boil I started chopping my carrots, celery and onion. I melted a teaspoon of butter in a large skillet and added the veggies. I let them cook for about 4 minutes then added the garlic and let it cook one more minute.
I added 1 tablespoon of flour to the skillet and stirred it all together. Then I added in the chicken broth and skim milk.
Cook the mixture over medium-high heat until it starts to simmer. Reduce heat to medium then let it simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
Then add in the chicken and noodles and stir it together. That’s it, dinner is done!
