This time of year just calls for warm, creamy noodle dishes. The cold, snow, wind, and cloudy days often have us reaching for comfort without even thinking twice! (Well, at least my first thought isn’t to dig into a plate of lettuce!)
Some dishes leave you feeling like you ate way more than you should have even if you just had one serving. Not this lemony chicken and chives noodle skillet. Light, bright lemony sauce coats whole grain noodles and shredded chicken to give you a new comfort food favorite!
I started my dish by cooking up half a bag of No Yolks® noodles. They have become my go-to noodle since first being introduced to them last year. No Yolks® noodles are cholesterol free noodles that are always smooth, firm, and delicious.
They always cook up right so you don’t have to worry about soggy noodles ruining your dish! They now come in a whole grain variety that I am excited about since I try to incorporate whole grains into my diet as much as possible.
A simple white sauce coats the whole grain No Yolks® noodles and is flavored with lemon juice and zest, onion, garlic, and chives. Since all comfort food is better with cheese (okay, maybe not all!), grated parmesan is stirred in right at the end and sprinkled on top when serving. To up the protein in this dish, I added in some shredded chicken.
The best part about this dish, besides the delicious combination of flavors, is that you can have this on the table in less than 30 minutes! Warm, hearty comfort food in 30 minutes. Doesn’t get much better than that!
