Directions

  • In a large skillet, melt butter or margarine over medium heat. Lay chicken strips in butter or margarine, and sprinkle with garlic salt and lemon pepper. Cook, turning frequently, until chicken strips are golden brown on all sides; the chicken should be still soft, not fried hard. Stack cooked strips at outer edges of the skillet if you need to cook more strips.

  • When all chicken strips are browned, add condensed mushroom soup, 1 soup can of water, and mushrooms to skillet; blend well with pan drippings and chicken strips. Add macaroni noodles, and just enough water to cover noodles; stir well. Lower heat, and cover. Simmer until noodles are done, stirring frequently.

Ok this recipe tasted pretty good but I'm giving it four stars only because I didn't feel very well after I ate it. Think it was the one cup of butter I consumed. Read More

Very tasty!! Only used 2 teaspoons of butter though as I think I would have felt sick just knowing I was consuming 1 cup of butter!! Still tasted great without all that butter. Read More

So the chicken doesn't dry out don't get it completely done (just white) before you add the soup and pasta...it makes the chicken much more tender and juicy. I also used 2 cloves of garlic instead of the garlic salt and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of cream of chicken but I think I'll use 3 cans all together next time...I had to keep adding water so it wouldn't dry out by the time the macaroni cooked.

My 3 boys ages 10 6 & 3 love this! The butter really does make a big difference. I have always made this with 2 cans of cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom. And I cut up the chicken into bite size pieces. Thanks for the recipe I have passed this on to friends and family and they are just as satisfied! Read More

This is a great recipe! Very easy tasty hearty and a true one-pot meal. Easy to customize too - switch up the type of condensed soup or change out the vegetables or even try it with pork! Definitely a keeper. Thanks! Read More

Didn't have high hopes for this when I started making it but it turned out to be REALLY good! I added a tablespoon of wine and a whole container of fresh mushrooms and it was SO good! My husband was like "Hmmm chicken stuff huh?" That was the last I heard from him because he ate the entire bowl! Yummy and easy! Read More

Very simple and no matter how low I am on groceries I almost always have what I need to make this. The only thing I do different is cut the butter in half. Read More

I suppose I made this dish more difficult for myself but once I read the recipe I wanted to bread & pan fry the chicken. I breaded it with egg and Ritz crackers then cooked it in a little olive oil.. cut the breasts in half.. mixed up the soup macaroni mushrooms some chicken broth two chopped cloves of garlic and a can of peas.. placed the chicken on top with a little shredded cheese and baked it for about 30 minutes on 300. I guess I was looking at recipes for inspiration:) Very tasty combination though. Next time I'll try the original recipe. Read More
