This super easy, ultra tasty recipe calls for white wine, a packet of Italian dressing mix, chicken, and pasta.

What You'll Need

  • 4-6 chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup white wine (Sauvignon Blanc works especially well due to the herbaceous character)
  • 2 10 oz. (or one 14 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 green onions (finely chopped)
  • 1 package of dry Italian salad dressing mix
  • 16 oz. pasta (linguine works very well)
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes
  • Sprinkle: parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Melt butter in large pot and stir in a package of Italian salad dressing mix.
  2. Next, stir in wine, mushroom soup, and cream cheese until well-blended. Continue to heat (without boiling) mixture for about 5 minutes. The sauce should be creamy and all cream cheese should be melted in.
  3. Place chicken in single layer in baking dish and pour the above mixture over. Cook for 50-55 minutes. Cook pasta about 15 minutes before chicken is done. Drain pasta and serve chicken and sauce over the linguine.
  1. Top with sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese. Don't forget to save some of the white wine to complement dinner!
