Angel Hair Chicken Pasta

Easy and a total crowd pleaser, angel hair chicken pasta ohsweetbasil.com

I know what you are thinking, but I promise that this really is a yummy and flavorful angel hair chicken pasta dish, even though it might not look very impressive. But let’s all be honest here, the over the top beautiful dishes aren’t always going to hit the spot like a little home cooking will.

Orange (as well as pink) are kind of the worst colors ever to photograph. At least that’s my opinion. It’s just hard to really capture the color. So this yummy, creamy pasta is even harder to get the full feeling for because of that. But just stick with me here. This is one of those dishes that I technically shouldn’t care all that much about, especially since it uses a mushroom soup which is never my favorite, but you can’t even tell that’s what it is in this pasta recipe. It’s perfect for company too because while it looks like you spent hours making a sauce you and I will know just how lazy we really were.

Anyway, try this out if you need a fast, no fuss dinner. It’s great if someone is sick or just had a baby and you want to drop something off to help out the family too!

Thanks Nalani for all of your yummy recipes you pass on to us!

  • We had this for dinner tonight and everyone loved it! I sauteed some sliced mushrooms and spread them over the chicken before covering with the sauce. Next time I might add some cream to the sauce to see if it cuts the saltiness a little. But that’s just my personal tastes; the recipe as written is delicious just as it is. Thanks for sharing it!

  • Ooops! Forgot to tell you something. A little sprinkle of chopped chives or green onions would add more interest to your photo. I used to keep a pot of chives on my windowsill for just this purpose. A little snip, a few chops and you’ve added color and interest. Thanks for all your lovely recipes. I’ve Pinned quite a few.

    • Hi Dianne,
      Yes, I usually try to keep those things on hand but sometimes I fail and that’s just how it goes. Haha, I am trying to remember garnish more often!

  • This looks wonderful! I do love the Golden Mushroom soup. I used to make a Beef Stroganoff with it that everyone loved. I’ll bet it’s just as good with the chicken!!

  • Does this need to be covered, while cooking?

    • Hi Tricia,
      It does not but it wouldn’t hurt it to cover it.

  • Does this recipe call for bone-in chicken breasts? Thanks.

    • Boneless, thanks! 🙂

      • Thank you… that’s what I bought! Can’t wait to make it!

      • Enjoy!

      • What is golden mushroom soup? Not condensed cream of mushroom I assume.

      • It is different than the cream of mushroom, it’s actually orange in color. I always think my store doesn’t carry it at first, but it’s always there and I just have to look harder. It is made by Campbells still. 🙂

      • I made this tonight with Campbell’s condensed cream of mushroom soup because I didn’t have golden mushroom soup. I used half the amount of soup the recipe called for with more white wine and fresh mushroom slices. Delicious! Can’t wait to try it with the golden mushroom soup!

  • I made this for dinner tonight and it was so delicious! Thank you for the recipe, the hubby wants me to work it into the dinner routine. I added a little more wine and some Parmesan cheese and a little milk to make the sauce go a little further. YUMMMMM!!!!!
