Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups of leftover chicken or 4 chicken legs or 2 thighs or 1 large chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 small yellow onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cups cream or milk
  • 1/2 box elbow noodles or any other type of noodle
  • 4 ounces cream cheese

Instructions
 

  • Dice the chicken small. Season chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, dried parsley and 2 teaspoons of the oil. Heat the remaining oil in a large pot or pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear until golden brown, cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
  • To the same pan, add the butter and fry the onion and garlic until the onion becomes transparent, stirring occasionally (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the flour and coat. Then, add the broth, milk, herbs, salt and pepper, and bring to a very low simmer (lower the heat if you need to).
  • Add the dry macaroni and stir occasionally as it comes to a simmer. Reduce heat down to medium low and stir regularly until the pasta is al dente.
  • In a bowl add half of the milk and the cream cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to blend until smooth.
  • Add the rest of the milk if the pasta is too thick!
