These one pot (well.. technically one ‘pan’) skinny creamy garlic noodles are a HUGE hit with my family. We have made them about at least a month for the last several months using all sorts of variations. My kids are crazy about them and request them all the time (and I am happy to oblige because they are SO easy)! This recipe doesn’t use heavy cream or large amounts of butter, but it tastes JUST as good as recipes that do.
Cooking the noodles in the chicken broth and milk is like magic. No draining and only ONE POT to clean! If you want to make these noodles into a rounded-out meal, you can add veggies like broccoli, peas, asparagus… you get the picture. You can also top it off with grilled chicken.
If you want to add chicken but don’t have a grill or don’t want to bother with grilling, you can season the chicken with Italian seasoning and cook it up in the same skillet you want to cook the noodles in (before cooking the noodles). Just saute the chicken until it is cooked most of the way through and remove from the pan, place on a plate, and cover. Wipe the pan out (be careful because the pan will be hot) and make the noodles as per the recipe below. Add the chicken after a few minutes into the noodles simmering and follow the rest of the recipe as directed. This way it is still a “one pot meal” and you only have one pot to clean up after cooking!
Same goes for if you decide to add vegetables. You can make these noodles as a full meal or as an easy side dish– totally up to you!
