Angel Chicken Pasta
Pantry was a bit bare today, but I found that I had most of the ingredients for this recipe. Wanting to make this a bit more healthy I substitued with reduced fat cream cheese, 2/3 can 98% fat free Cream of Celery, only used 2 Tbls butter, used beer (Coors light) instead of wine (the Hubs hates the taste of white wine in sauces), and served over fiber enriched penne pasta. I cut my three giant chicken breast into wide 2 inch stripes to decrease the cooking time.
I must admit that I was skeptical, but the outcome was a very tasty dish.
Next time (after I've gone shopping), I'll add some fresh mushrooms, maybe peas or brocolli. AND I really think the addition of beer (however a cheap one) provided a nice ballance to tone down the tanginess of the sauce. I imagine a white wine could contribute to a tangy sauce in a way that we may not like.
