May 14, 2023Anneliese Walker

This is a great 20 minute meal, good use of leftover chicken, and a great freezer meal! Double the recipe on a weeknight for a fast meal plus some for the freezer.

Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Servings: 6 adults


  • (1 cup shredded or cubed cooked chicken) Whole Chicken

  • (8 oz) Parmesan Cheese
  • (1/2 tsp) Salt


  1. Cook Pasta
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a medium size pot.  Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring so the butter and garlic don't burn.  Stir in the basil.  Add the cream cheese and whisk constantly until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.  Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes
  3. Keep cooking over medium heat while adding the milk and whisking until blended into the sauce.  Stir in parmesan, salt & pepper.  Continue to cook until sauce is desired consistency, 5-10 min.  Stir in chicken.
