Creamy Chicken and Noodles

This is a recipe that was made up by my Aunt Linda before she passed on. We used to have this most of the time when we would have family reunions at her house. It is so rich and yummy that it will become a favorite at your house too, and it is so easy to make. However, if you are looking for a low-fat recipe, this is NOT it. It combines cream of chicken soup with sour cream and then it is topped liberally with cheddar cheese and served over spaghetti. The main meat in the dish is boneless skinless chicken breasts. Enjoy, here is the recipe. The title to this recipe is what Linda named it, but the family calls it Aunt Linda's Favorite Chicken because until she died, she was the only person that ever made it. It was her signature dish.

Creamy Chicken and Noodles (Or as the family calls it... Aunt Linda's Favorite Chicken)

1 stick of butter, melted in the oven in baking dish
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup flour mixed with salt and pepper to taste
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Cooked spaghetti

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the 8x13 baking dish in the oven with the stick of butter and let the butter melt as the oven heats up. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture and place in baking dish with the butter. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn chicken over and bake another 30 minutes. While the chicken is baking the second 30 minutes, mix together the cream of chicken soup and sour cream. After chicken is done baking, top with soup/sour cream mixture, return to oven and bake 15 minutes. Shred cheddar cheese, and then top the dish off with the cheese and bake an additional 10 minutes. Serve over hot spaghetti.

The soup mixture, butter, and cheese combine together while baking to make a yummy sauce for the pasta, enjoy it! That is the good stuff! Serve with a nice crusty french bread to soak up the sauce and a green salad makes this a meal guaranteed to fill everyone up!
