We are totally addicted to this Crack Chicken Spaghetti! OMG! SO good! Chicken spaghetti loaded with cheddar, bacon and ranch. My all-time favorite flavor combination! Just in case you are new here, I came up with the Crack flavor way back in 2007. It all started with a dip made with cheddar, bacon and ranch mix. I made the dip for a tailgate and everyone went crazy for it. Nobody could stop eating it and they said it was like crack. Hence the name, Crack Dip. I now take those flavors and "crack out" all my favorite foods.

This Crack Chicken Spaghetti can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen until you are ready to serve. If you freeze the dish, make sure to thaw it in the refrigerator before baking.

We LOVED this Crack Chicken Spaghetti. I have actually made it a few times over the last month and it has been a hit every single time! It tastes great right out of the oven and reheated the next day. I used rotisserie chicken for the chicken in the casserole and it came together in a snap! I boil the noodles and get the sauce going at the same time. By the time the noodles are done, the sauce is ready. Just toss together and throw it in the oven. SO easy!

  1. Could I substitute something for the Velveeta? My boyfriend is not a fan.

    2. In the 1980s, Velveeta used the advertising jingle, "Colby, Swiss and Cheddar, blended all together" in its US television commercials to explain its taste and texture, because at that time genuine cheese was used in its recipe. So I would imagine you could use those? It's worth a shot.

    4. Try using Kraft Old English sharp cheddar slices. It is processed like Velveeta but is better to me. Gonna try this using Kraft.

  2. It looks like you added green onions or chives or something but I don't see it on the list. I'm not a fan of 'green things'...family joke with me lol...unless it is like sweet peas, green beans, cucumbers and lettuce...otherwise no green things lol.

    1. I just garnished the casserole with a little green onions. You don't have to garnish the casserole if you don't like green things

  4. We make this recipe a lot at our house. OMG... it is yummy! And for all those who are questioning the Velveeta: if you don't care for Velveeta, use what you like! At different times, I've made this recipe with mozzarella, cheddar, and I've even used a couple pkgs of cream cheese instead of the Velveeta... and it was always fantastic! Use the recipe as a starting point, then add what you love! If you love asparagus, add it! If you love the crunch of celery, add it! This is a great base recipe & you just can't go wrong. YUMMY!!

    1. I've only made it with spaghetti. It should be fine with 8oz of your favorite pasta though. Enjoy!

  6. Do you have any suggestions on making this a make ahead meal for the freezer? Would I thaw before baking it?
