Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta



I love skillet meals and this one certainly did not disappoint! Both my husband and I love Chicken Cordon Bleu and pasta so combine the two together and we were both in heaven! I also like that I was able to enjoy it and not feel guilty about it since mine is diet friendly. Can't get better than that!

Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu Pasta
Serves 6
WW PP=6
Cal 251 , Fat 4.7g, Carbs 30.5g, Fiber 4g, Protein 21.6g

Ingredients
8 oz. pasta (I used Ronzoni Rotini)
1 cup chopped ham
1 cup cooked chopped chicken
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (I used reduced fat)
2 oz. cream cheese (I used fat free)
1 cup milk (I used 2 percent)
1 cup fat free chicken broth
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cook Pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile in a large skillet stir together milk with 2 oz. cream cheese and bring to a light boil over medium heat. Add in the chicken broth while whisking constantly then season the sauce with salt and garlic powder and stir for 5 minutes, or until thick and bubbly. Add in half of the Swiss cheese. Once melted, stir in the cooked pasta, chicken, and ham. Add remaining Swiss cheese, cover and turn heat to low. Cook for another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
