Chicken Noodle Delight = Comfort Food
I tried out a new recipe from the Taste of Home website. So good!
To make it even healthier I skipped adding the 1/4 tsp. salt, butter, and crackers. I also skipped the baking step and just heated it on the stove. Delicious.
Chicken Noodle Delight

4 cups uncooked yolk-free noodles
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt
1/4 cup fat-free milk
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the soup, cream cheese, sour cream, yogurt, milk, parsley, onion powder and salt. Stir in chicken.
