  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain. Pour rotini into prepared baking dish.

  • Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir onions, celery, and bell pepper in melted butter until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir milk, cream of mushroom soup, poultry seasoning, salt, and black pepper into the onion mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; about 5 minutes. Add chicken and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese to the milk mixture; remove immediately from heat and pour over the rotini. Top pasta and sauce mixture with remaining Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted and beginning to brown, about 25 minutes.

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

This turned out great. I didn't have the bell pepper but had some corn on hand. I had made beer can chicken the day before. The family loved it and will definitely make again. Great flavor.

I cut back on the milk in this recipe and added a few mushrooms that I had in my fridge. When you are putting this together make sure you check to be sure that there is enough seasoning in this because I thought it was a little on the bland side. This was easy to make and would be a good dish for a busy night! Thanks for the recipe!

This was a good quick and easy dish that I modified based upon what I had on hand and I cut the recipe in half. I had fresh portabella mushrooms so I added almost a whole 10oz. package of those but left out the celery. I also added 1 large clove of garlic. I used canola oil to cook the veggies instead of butter. The milk seemed like too much so I cut that in half. I didn't have enough cheddar cheese so I substituted with Swiss for half of the cheese and sprinkled some parmesan on top before I baked it. My only disappointment was that it had too much pepper but that may have been my own mistake when I cut the recipe down. I would make it again but leave out the pepper.

I made this with linguine and TONS of veggies (broccoli carrots celery onions). My husband asked for more AND requested more veggies next time! It turned out great!!

I used leftover chicken thighs to make this! It was awesome. The only thing I added was 1/2 tsp. of Italian seasoning. I served it with garlic bread.

True to its name this was an easy recipe and my family enjoyed it. I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I subbed cream of chicken soup. I added with the milk (didn't change the amount) a small can of mushrooms (rinsed drained) a can of diced tomatoes (rinsed drained) 1 TBSP of green chilies a bit more pepper and 1 tsp garlic powder. I also used whole wheat penne. While my boys loved it and had seconds I thought it was a little bland. I'll make it again but I will probably add some Italian seasoning and maybe a hit or two of hot sauce or a sprinkle of cayenne.

I did as many others reduce the milk in half. I also added 1/4c sherry and added garlic powder. To increase the vegetables I also added broccoli to my onion and green peppers. It turned out great.
