Over Used Recipe

This is something my Mom made all the time when we were kids. She always had the ingredients on hand and could throw it together in a flash. Since she has left us all of her recipes have become like gold to us, even if they were things we hated as kids. Isn't that funny how that works? Anyway, we love it and it is now one of my husband's favorites as well.

Vernene's Chicken Tettrazzini
6 chicken breasts thawed and cubed
2 Tbsp. olive oil
garlic powder
2 cans cream of mushroom soup 
(or cream of chicken if you don't like mushrooms)
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
1 pkg. spaghetti noodles 
(my hubby prefers egg noodles so it's whichever you like)

1. Brown chicken in skillet with olive oil and garlic and other desired seasonings.
2. Add creamed soups, Parmesan cheese, milk, and sour cream to chicken. Warm to simmer on low heat.
3. Cook noodles and drain.
4. Combine them all together in a bowl or the pot and serve! Add more salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese to taste.

So easy and fast! In fact, this is making me want some. I think this will be dinner at our house tonight.

Another variation:
Use beef (ground or cubed steak) instead of chicken and egg noddles instead of spaghetti to make it a beef stroganoff.
