crunchy chicken with creamy italian sauce & bowtie pasta

What’s for dinner? Crunchy Chicken with Creamy Italian Sauce & Bowtie Pasta perfect for busy weeknights.

Okay, we seem to be back online, but not sure for how long so I’ll make a quick post while I can!

This dish was full of “first times” for me. First, I have never done the corn flakes crust with any meat before and second, I’ve been wanting to try the Philadelphia Cooking Creme for quite some time now but could never justify doing so because all I thought about was calories, fat, and way too much cream. Well, I clearly threw that thought out the door and figured, you live once, so why not?

Everything turned out just wonderful. The pasta was flavorful, creamy, smooth, and rich while the chicken turned out perfect (if I do say so myself). The corn flakes really do give it a good crust and flavor. I like the texture too. It’s a great combination to top on pasta. Different than the regular breaded chicken everyone is used to. This is a great and easy alternative!

Just came across this recipe and noticed the cooking creme is no longer available, but found this on the Philadelphia site for how to substitute...
