Cheesy Chicken Ole aka the End Of the "Meal In A Box"

Cheesy Chicken Ole!

Great for a weeknight, done in about 30 minutes, and very versatile.

1/2 - 1 lb chicken (precooked is best)
1 lb Bowtie pasta 
1 can corn (black beans work well too)
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
1/2 c cheese sauce (Velveeta, Tostito's Cheese Dip- whatever you prefer)
Salt to taste.

Start by mixing pasta, chicken, seasoning, and 3 c water. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until pasta is al dente. Remove from heat, add corn and cheese, stirring well to heat thoroughly.
Serve with salsa and chips if desired. 

Poof! An easy weeknight meal that's MUCH healthier than those "Helper" boxes, and took no more time. It's cheaper, too, if you use what you have on hand. Basically, any meat + pasta + seasoning can be made into a version of this. It's super easy to play with and you can even prep everything and put it together in the pantry for 'emergencies' with canned meat.
