I started with a pound of frozen chicken tenderloins. I browned the chicken in two tablespoons of butter. I seasoned the chicken with some garlic salt before sauting. I got water boiling for the pasta as the chicken cooked.
The recipe didn't call for mushrooms, but guess what? I had them so I added them about half way through cooking the chicken.
Once the chicken was fully cooked, I added a can of cream of chicken soup (the recipe called for cream of celery but I didn't have any), ½ cup of pesto, and ½ cup of milk to the chicken and mushrooms. Now, I should have cubed up the chicken before adding soup and milk. I recommend you doing so if you make this dish.
I use store bought pesto. Giada has a great pesto available at Target. Highly recommend it!
Bring it to a boil and then simmer for five minutes. When the bowtie pasta is cooked, add it to the chicken and sauce.
I topped with some mozzarella cheese to add to the creamy goodness.
