Chicken Alfredo Noodles

Typically chicken alfredo is time consuming or involves lots of steps. But not this one! I brainstormed some ideas and came up with a quick and easy way to make this meal. And was it ever yummy! Plus, I think it's so fun to use different noodles, rather than just the typical spaghetti-type ones. And if it wasn't for cooking the noodles, this would be a one-pan meal! My favorite kind. The less dishes, the better.

1 package of small shells
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped
1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan, divided
2 teaspoons pepper
4 Tablespoons parsley

Cook the noodles according to package directions.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and saute until the chicken is cooked through. Add the milk and garlic, cook for 3 minutes. Add 1 cup Parmesan and simmer until the liquid is reduced to about 1 cup. Remove from heat. Stir in the cooked noodles. Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!!
