Popular Chicken and Pasta Recipes

For a quick weeknight meal, these recipes combine two family favorites: chicken and pasta. From easy chicken pasta salad to chicken pasta casseroles, these simple recipes come together in a flash.

Chicken Noodle Soup with Dill

Most versions of chicken noodle soup aren't in dire need of a makeover, though we did come across one with heavy cream and a cup of Parmesan when we were researching this book. It is however undeniably comfort food for many (especially sick) people and so we had to include it. And we were able to give it a little makeover--whole-wheat egg noodles as opposed to regular add fiber and nutrients and the reduced-sodium chicken broth cuts the sodium. By all means use homemade chicken broth if you have it.
