Chicken a La Laughing Cow Over Pasta

Here is a quick and tasty, satisfying lunch for one.  Or, add a salad alongside, and it could be dinner.

I had half a can of my favorite Kirkland chicken breast in the fridge and so put it together with some pasta, Laughing Cow cheese wedges, and a whole fresh tomato.  The Captain thoroughly enjoyed it for his lunch.

You could easily substitute 3 - 4 ounces of cooked chicken breast, cut into chunks.

Chicken a La Laughing Cow Over Pasta
Makes 1 serving
  • 2 ounces dry weight whole wheat pasta
  • 1/2 can Kirkland chunk chicken breast
  • 2 Laughing Cow cheese wedges
  • 1 whole tomoto, cut into small chunks

  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.  Drain it welll, and then put the cooked pasta back into the saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the chicken, cheese wedges and tomato chunks.
  3. Stir continuously until most the cheese has melted and coated the other ingredients.
  4. Remove to a serving plate and season with salt and pepper.

  1. I've never used Laughing Cow like this before - neat idea. I suppose it's perfect for spreading so it must melt wonderfully on pasta!


Thanks for leaving me a comment.
