Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken

“Bake chicken in a delectably rich sauce made of butter, wine, golden mushroom soup and cream cheese with chives. Serve over angel hair pasta for a dish that is fit for your most elegant dinner parties.” revised from All-Recipes K: Delicately flavor easy to make sauce, paired nicely with angel hair pasta. This could be adapted for a Steak Diane sauce with the addition of worcestershire and sour cream.
