1 ½ pounds of Smoked cooked Chicken
16 oz box of Penne Pasta
2 Sticks of Margarine
Seasonings to Dash:

Slap Yo Momma Seasoning
Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
This recipe calls for smoke chicken, however you can use a rotisserie chicken from Wal-Mart to make things a lot simpler! Just debone and set aside. If you decide so smoke the chicken, use hickory chips for wood smoking. Next, place 3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast in a disposable metal shallow pan, and add ¼ cup of water. Cover the pan with aluminum foil. Smoke chicken at 200 degrees for two hours or until chicken is completely cooked. Shred chicken and set aside.
Boil noodles according to directions on the box. When draining water from the noodles, leave about ¼ cup of water in pot and add two sticks of margarine. Stir lightly while it melts. Next, add a dash of each seasoning. You want an even amount of each seasoning except the Italian Seasoning. Add three dashes of Italian seasoning. I tend to add a little extra garlic salt as well since it’s my favorite seasoning. Stir seasonings to mix well with your butter sauce. Next, fold in the smoked chicken.
Pair with a slice of garlic bread and a salad, and you’ve got yourself an easy dinner that taste like it’s straight out of a magazine!
