Chicken Gloria Pasta

I ran across a recipe for Chicken Gloria in a family cookbook a few weeks ago and decided it sounded perfect to adapt into a pasta recipe.  Penne pasta is my favorite pasta to freeze because it is so sturdy, it retains it’s shape very well.  Remember when cooking pasta to freeze, cook it until just barely al dente.  Then, when you reheat it in the oven, it won’t overcook.

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups onion, sliced
  • 1 cups chicken broth
  • 0.5 cups white wine
  • 10 ounces condensed cream of mushroom soup (or make your own here)
  • 0.5 cups milk
  • 0.5 teaspoons black pepper
  • 0.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pounds penne pasta
  • 2.67 cups chicken, cooked and sliced


In a large pan, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat.  Stir in onions and cook for 4-5 minutes, until onions begin to soften.  Pour in chicken broth, white wine, soup, milk, pepper and salt. Stir well, then reduce heat to low.  Cook for 20 minutes, until sauce begins to thicken, stirring frequently.  While sauce is cooking, prepare penne noodles according to the package directions until just al dente.  Stir cheese and chicken into sauce, then remove from heat.  Drain pasta, then stir in sauce and chicken.

Freezing Directions:

Cook as directed above.  Allow to cool, then place into baking pan.  Cover tightly with foil, label, and freeze.  To serve: thaw in fridge.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 until warmed through.

    When I opened this email it had a receipe for A lemon and vegetable chicken receipe and I was going to use it but now It has been replaced with this Chicken Pasta Gloria. I don’t know where the other recipe went but would like to see it back.

      Hi Kathy, I’m not sure what recipe showed up in your email? The email I received showed the Chicken Gloria Pasta along with two different soup recipes. If you have a screen shot of the recipe in your email, I could try to look it up. You could email it to info at onceamonthmeals.com

    What would you recommend as a substitute for white wine? My husband has a severe alcohol allergy and I don’t want to take any chances. Thanks!

    • Katie says:

      Hi Christina! You could use chicken broth in place of it. I don’t think cooking wine has any alcohol in it either but chicken broth would probably keep you the safest.

    I found the onions to be way too much. I only used half a small onion. I also subbed out the wine. Next time I will try to make my own cream of mushroom.

    I found there to be too much salt in the recipe. I don’t think the extra salt is needed. Next time I will also add peas to the recipe for some more color. It smelled delicious while cooking!
