I can’t wait ’til you see how this all goes down.
Which is now. Aren’t you so excited?
You know my obsession with one-pot ALL THE THINGS.
And my rowdy habit of throwing raw pasta into a dish and baking it with everything else.
Waaaayull, this takes the cake (pasta?) to a whole nother level. Because it’s in a skillet! And it’s got cream cheese in it! (I get easily excited about things.)
Look at that – it’s store bought marinara with half a block of cream cheese in it. You might be thinking, “What is going on here?” And I’ll say, “Utopia in a skillet, Chachi. That’s what.”
This mix + 2 cups of milk and omg. Just pour it in, stir it up, cry your eyes out.
And if that’s not enough to completely ruin your life, we’re putting crispy herbed panko chicken bites on top! See, when you make the chicken bite-sized and crispy, it tricks your kids’ brains into thinking it’s kid food. When in fact, it’s quite suitable for all the faces in your house, and they’ve just been straight bamboozled. #science
The cream cheese just DOES something to it, man. It adds a slight baby tarty essence to it. Not over the top. Nononono. It does what cream cheese is solely meant to do. And that is woo you into blissful submission.
See how I take care of you?
It will spend close to an hour in the oven, but that gives you a chance to squeeze in a Gilmore Girls eppy while your kids do their homework or take a bath or build the Roman Empire. You know.
Top with fresh parsley, more cheese, extra wine, your entire upper torso.
One skillet! You get me.
