Chicken Farfalle in a Creamy Wine Sauce

Diane Atherton


I made the mistake of freezing cream cheese. Not just one block but 4 blocks. I found out that cream cheese doesn't freeze very well. It becomes crumbly. This is something I think I knew!! I couldn't use it with any dip recipe or even spread it on a cracker without it crumbling.

I didn't want to waste it so I decided to melt it into a dish and this is what I came up with. Even though it didn't turn out as smooth as I wanted (because I froze the cream cheese) it tasted wonderful and I will make again with cream cheese that I didn't freeze.

How to Make Chicken Farfalle in a Creamy Wine Sauce


  1. Cut chicken into bite size pieces; set aside.
  2. Heat EVOO in skillet over medium heat; add onion and bell pepper; saute until tender; add garlic and heat about 1 minute. Remove onion mixture and place in a bowl, leaving oil in pan.
  3. Add chicken to pan. Over a medium heat, cook pieces until a light golden brown; stirring to ensure all sides are cooked.
  4. Meanwhile, pour soup into sauce pan; add cream cheese. Heat on a medium low heat until cheese meals. Once cheese has melted, add wine, onion/pepper/garlic mixture and mushrooms; heat about 3 minutes until bubbly.
  5. Pour sauce over chicken; stir until mixed well.

    NOTE: I did add 3 chicken bouillon cubes to the water for extra flavor.
