Chicken Spaghetti - Recipe and Review

Everyone loves a great meal. It's the last few days before Santa arrives and we're all pressed for a few extra minutes or two. During my productive many hours on Twitter, I happened upon a conversation about favorite meals for DHs (Dear Husbands). (Why I jumped in the convo without a husband is beyond me - but I digress). One of my friendly followers mentioned chicken spaghetti. I've engaged in a few conversations about chicken spaghetti, so I decided to try it. 

My grocery shopping extravaganza is typically on Sundays. I added the items  necessary for the meal and prayed to the Food Gods that all would be swell. The recipe and directions are below. My picture and review will follow.

  • 2 cups
  •  Cooked Chicken
  • 3 cups
  •  Dry Spaghetti, Broken Into Two Inch Pieces
  • 2 cans
  •  Cream Of Mushroom Soup
  • 2 cups
  •  Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup
  •  Finely Diced Green Pepper
  • 1/4 cup
  •  Finely Diced Onion
  • 1 jar
  •  (4 Ounce) Diced Pimentos, Drained
  • 2 cups
  •  Reserved Chicken Broth From Pot
  • 1 teaspoon
  •  Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon
  •  (to 1/4 Teaspoon) Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup
  •  Additional Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Preparation Instructions
Cook 1 cut up fryer and pick out the meat to make two cups. Cook spaghetti in same chicken broth until al dente. Do not overcook. When spaghetti is cooked, combine with remaining ingredients except additional 1 cup sharp cheddar.
Place mixture in casserole pan and top with remaining sharp cheddar. Cover and freeze up to six months, cover and refrigerate up to two days, or bake immediately: 350 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly. (If the cheese on top starts to get too cooked, cover with foil).

Well, I followed the recipe almost. I used a bit too much cheese and used Pepper Jack instead of Cheddar. I also used Rotel because that's what my Twitter Follower said to do. It was a pretty quick meal but I did not like it. It may be something children would enjoy but eh, iCant. By no means is this massive fail anyone's fault (especially not mine) . I'm not much of a cook though I make great Thanksgiving food. I'll keep practicing though. I'm sure my future husband will want a home cooked meal sometimes. 

My version is below. (Be nice) Excuse those Thanksgiving rolls and yes they were as hard as they looked.

Have you guys ever made chicken spaghetti? Is this something that your guy would enjoy?


Never made it but looks yummy,,.been thinking of recipes where I can get a few meals out of it so this is perfect!

It looks pretty good!! I've never made it before but I do love it!! I need to try my hand at it as well. My guy and I have been together three years and I've learned to cook pretty good since I practice for him. My go to website is since people actually review the recipes and tell if they did mofications to it. Fortunately his mother can't cook so even my epic fail recipes he ends up liking lollllll make sure ur future hubby's mom can't cook!!!

@Mrs. Pancakes - girl I'on know about this one. It's quite cheesy.

@Style4Curves. LOL Another great tip on marriage.

LOL! I actually have eaten chicken spaghetti. I've never made it but it was a regular meal my Mom would make way back in the day. I honestly thought it was a hispanic thing since all of my Puerto Rican friends have had it and some still make it. It's ok, different. My hubby I'm sure would not care for it. I think it's an aquired taste.

Ha! I have heard of chicken spaghetti but I have never made it. Seems like a pretty straight forward recipe. Too bad you didn't like it. Keep at it though!

I have heard of it but have never made it. Trial and error is good. Next time it will come out perfect

I've had chicken and spaghetti, but never combined!

i will refrain myself, LOL. you already know what i think about this as we talked on twitter. the bf love chicken although he might be suspicious if i made this one, you know something on the lines like, "honey, what did i do wrong? are you trying to kill me?" oh lord. you know that'll be a situation! hahaha

i never tried chicken spaghetti, but always was scared to try... because chicken tastes weird when you reheat the next day... it looks good, but because you said you didn't like it... i may not try it at all... lol. who knows, i may just try it just for the heck of it... and my family might end up liking it... :)

Great post and recipe thanks for sharing.

My hubby doesn't like spaghetti so wouldn't make it lol,I have tried it before&loved chicken pasta.loves his home cooked food throughout e week but hav2substitute pasta w somethn else.

Lovely blog btw am following x

That can be tricky! Because you don't want to dry out the chicken or spaghetti. I make a chicken tetrazzini, and the key is to add milk. I know it sounds crazy but it keeps it moist and is very delicious.

Thanks for your sweet comment and for following me!!!




I have yet to enjoy Chicken Spaghetti, but I imagine I would. I love chicken and I love spaghetti, so I'm sure I'd love the combined dish.

love this post and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

hilarious!! What can I say it sounded good like it would be good. LOL!

I amke Chicken Spaghetti but I make mine in a pot. Quick and easy and done.

You have no idea how good this sounds to me right now!
