Pasta Lunch and Grandma's Recipe Box

Welcome to the {Not Just} Homemaking Party! My mom, Christy, is sharing today. Hope you're having a blessed week!

I wonder if sometimes my great, great, great grandmother just pulled some random items out of her icebox and cellar pantry on a Saturday morning and decided to make lunch out of bits and dabs of food stock on hand?
Maybe while grandma was sitting at the table watching her family enjoy the impromptu meal she had prepared, she decided to write it down and put it in a little box for next time, so she would not forget the ingredients she used. Maybe each time that she "made up" an incredible dish she would place the instructions in the little box. And so, the recipe box was invented and passed down generation to generation.
Here is my random, quick, and easy pasta lunch I served yesterday with a salad and crackers. Of course, I wrote it down and placed the recipe card in my little box!

Quick and Easy Pasta Lunch
Prepare 1 boneless chicken breast by dusting with salt and pepper. Then bake for 30 minutes at 350º. Cool slightly and cut into cubes. In a large skillet, add cubed chicken, a small package of cooked angel hair pasta, 1 pound of grated white cheddar cheese, 1 pint sour cream, 1/4 c. of chicken broth, 1 TB olive oil, 1/4 c. melted butter, basil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper, to taste.
