Chicken Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini- Spaghetti pasta, chicken, veggies, cream cheese and Parmesan cheese all baked together until golden brown and bubbly.

I can not believe I waited so long to fix chicken tetrazzini. Honestly, I never thought my husband, Jason would like it. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong. He was practically eating out of the pan before we actually sat down to eat and was all like, “what is this amazingness and why haven’t we had this before?” Followed by, “is there mushrooms in this?” Have I mentioned that my husband loves mushrooms? Well, he does! I am not the biggest fan of mushrooms and I didn’t mind them in this dish. I diced them kind of small and that allowed them to blend in with the other ingredients.

I am really not sure why I thought  he wouldn’t like it. Everything in chicken tetrazzini he likes.  Annnddd, if f he didn’t like it…he would gobble it up anyways and tell me it was delicious. He’s a sweetheart! Believe me, I know from kitchen fails that we have experienced in the past. But those are for another day and time.

This makes a great weeknight dinner. It’s quick and easy. It is also creamy, cheesy and delicious. 🙂

 I love making new recipes and knowing that they are something that we are going to enjoy at our dinner table for years to come. In fact, Jason has already asked when we are having it again. lol!  Turkey can be used in place of the chicken  and is a great way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving…..which will be here before we know it!

*Enjoy*

    • Tiffany says:

      Thanks so much for stopping by and pinning, Thalia!! 🙂

      • Tiffany says:

        Jessica, this should be enough to serve 4 adults. Especially if you serve a salad, side or bread with it. 🙂 Thanks for checking out the recipe!

  3. This is in the oven right now! It smells glorious. I switched the celery for spinach (had it on hand) and left out the mushrooms (I’m not a fan). Looking forward to trying it! I told my husband tonight I love baking dinner because I have time to wash all the cooking dishes before we even eat 🙂

    • So glad you made this, Jenni! I hope you enjoyed it and I am glad you switched out ingredients to your liking! I love dinners that give time to do the dishes while it’s baking!
