Parmesan Chicken Noodle

My friend brought this meal over after I had my baby (almost 2 years ago!) and we loved it. I finally got the recipe from her. This is a great weeknight meal and very kid friendly.

Parmesan Chicken Noodle
8 oz Angel Hair pasta, cooked
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 - 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped

Place cooked noodles in bottom of casserole dish. In saucepan melt butter, add flour, add chicken broth. Cook until thick & bubbly. Add milk, stir in Parmesan cheese and chicken. Pour sauce & chicken over noodles. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (This recipe makes a lot of sauce, so you could easily get away with cutting it down a bit.)

Poaching Chicken
I finally learned how to poach chicken perfectly. Before, it always turned out a little on the tough side - No matter how many different ways I tried it. Everyday Food Magazine taught me the trick. (If you already knew how to do this to perfection, good for you! If not, this will help you so much!!)

Place chicken in a large, shallow skillet or pot. Add water to cover and season with salt. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a bare simmer; cook 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and let chicken stand, covered, until cooked through, 12-14 minutes. Remove chicken from liquid and let cool completely. The chicken stays moist and tender - perfect for this dish and also for cold salads.
