Notes

  • Any type of pasta works well!  I used gluten free penne pasta.
  • Both dairy free and regular cream cheese can be used.
  • Shredded chicken, leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken work well.  Just be sure to cut up into bite sized pieces.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • This recipe makes 4 large servings or 6 regular servings.
