ROTEL CHICKEN PASTA

Ro-Tel Chicken Pasta is the most requested dish I make from my sister. Since this was such a hit with her I decided to share it with you. I have to admit it is GOOD. I mean close your eyes and savor every bite good.

This dish is not hard to make but does require prepared chicken. If you want to cut back on prep time I suggest using a rotisserie chicken from the deli section of your grocery store. Another fast option would be purchasing a package of precooked chicken from the freezer section and popping it in the microwave.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breastor rotisserie
  • 1 medium bell pepper diced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic finely diced or grated or ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 package penne pasta or 8-10 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup 10 ¾ oz.
  • 1 can Rotel with diced chilies 10 oz.
  • 8-10 oz. of Velveeta cheese cubed
  • ½ cup of shredded cheddar
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Prepare pasta according to package directions (I always add salt and olive oil to the pot when make pasta just a little trick I learned watching Rachel Ray.)
  3. Cube or shred the cooked chicken
  4. In large skillet over medium heat melt butter add chicken diced bell pepper, onion and garlic cook until there is not liquid left in the skillet
  5. Stir in soup, cubed Velveeta and Rotel Tomatoes. Reduce heat to low, and cook until the cheese melts, stirring constantly.
  6. Once cheese melts stir in pasta and add to a lightly greased 9×13 casserole dish treated (I lined my with aluminum foil and then treated it with nonstick cooking spray. I hate scrubbing dishes!)
  7. Top with shredded cheese
