Cheesy Tomato Chicken Skillet

Every once in a while I have a craving for comfort food. However, it's usually a rare and short lived occasion. No, I don't crave Denny's or IHOP, or Waffle House. I'm pretty sure my husband is going to disown me at some point over this.

I saw this recipe a while back on Julie's Foodie, and it just sounded so creamy and delicious that I had to try it. This is my idea of comfort food -- rich and creamy, and just melt in your mouth. Not that over-fried greasiness business.

Cheesy Tomato Chicken Skillet
Pillsbury Best of 2007

2 cups of pasta (I used radiatore, isn't it cute?)
3/4 lbs chicken, cut into pieces
1 can cream of chicken soup (I used the Healthy Request)
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (I used a can of diced)
1 1/2 cup of milk
2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Cook the pasta as directed

Heat 10 in skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken & cook thoroughly. Reduce heat to medium; stir in soup, tomatoes, milk & basil.

Stir in cooked pasta. Cook about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally until bubbly & heated through. Sprinkle with cheese. Reduce heat, cover & let stand about 5 minutes.

I am sure this recipe has an ungodly amount of calories and cholesterol (and a ton of anything else bad) because it is just that good. (And anything good has to have those requirements, right?)

We've already made this a couple times... this is definitely a comfort food I can crave.

  1. I just had to say I made this and loved it. We skipped the tomato, since my husband is allergic, but substituted broccoli instead and it was great! Thanks for an awesome recipe!
