Tasty Tuesday: Chicken Spaghetti

This recipe is a favorite of Margaret's family!  Chicken, pasta & cheese... YUM!

The Ingredients:

  • 3-4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 box (16 oz) spaghetti noodles
  • 3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sour cream
  • Optional: sliced mushrooms, peas, broccoli, pimentos, green bell peppers, onions, other veggies
  • Pepper & seasoned salt (be sure to use SEASONED salt!)

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large pot, boil chicken breast until cooked (about 15-20 mins). Remove chicken, but save water. Salt water & add spaghetti noodles, breaking into 2-inch pieces.

While noodles are cooking, shred chicken. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water, then drain spaghetti noodles. Add shredded chicken, cream of chicken soup & sour cream to cooked pasta. Add enough pasta water to thin out the sauce so it doesn't dry out in oven. Add 1 cup cheese, pepper & seasoned salt to taste & vegetables if desired. Mix well.

Pour into 9x13 baking dish & top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Bake for 20 mins.
