3 cups milk
1 cup half-and-half

In a large skillet over medium heat combine chicken, 2 tablespoons butter, garlic and Italian seasoning. Cook until chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt after water is hot and then pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
