Chicken Tetrazzini with Cream Sauce
This Chicken Tetrazzini with Asiago Cream Sauce is a delicious dinner idea any night of the week. It's easy to make and great for using up any leftover chicken or turkey you might have. This dinner ideas with pasta are made from scratch; you can use a rotisserie chicken or whatever chicken you have on hand. The creamy Asiago cream sauce is a little lighter using half milk and half cream, instead of using all heavy cream, along with Greek yogurt. While it might be a bit lighter, it still tastes extra creamy and delicious. This recipe, for the most part, is a one-pot meal or a one-skillet meal. You will use one other pot to boil the pasta, but that's it. The rest of the recipe is made in the skillet starting with the vegetables to include chopped onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms. Sherry cooking wine is used in this recipe to give the vegetables a nice full flavor. You can substitute some chicken broth for the sherry cooking wine if that's what you have in the house. Chicken broth is just as flavorful. If you have an oven-safe skillet or cast iron skillet, you can put this pasta dish from the stove to the oven. This is only if you want to add a crunchy crust of bread crumbs to the recipe idea.
When making any easy delicious pasta recipes with chicken, you will be faced with what sort of chicken to buy. Different options can include conventional chicken, free-range chicken, and organic chicken. People are becoming concerned more and more about where their food comes from, how it’s been raised and what it’s been fed. You may feel overwhelmed when you go into the grocery with all the variety of food labels to choose from. When it comes to the chicken being certified organic, the farms where the chicken is raised must follow a set of strict guidelines and be inspected annually by a third-party certification body to ensure that those standards are met. The standards that they must follow include that the birds be raised organically no later than two days after they hatch. The chicken must be fed certified organic feed for their whole lives.
