Chicken Tetrazzini is a holiday tradition in our family. My grandmother made the BEST chicken tetrazzini. It is my favorite recipe, but I am always open to trying new versions. I came across this version in one of my old cookbooks. It differed from my grandmothers recipe with sour cream in the mixture. I thought that sounded interesting, so I gave it a try!

This Chicken Tetrazzini was delicious and easy to make. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freezer for later. LOVE make ahead meals - especially during the holidays!

To cut down on the prep time, I used a rotisserie chicken. Rotisserie chickens are my favorite shortcut. I stock up on rotisserie chickens every time I go to Costco. I remove the meat from the chicken and put it in freezer bags so I can whip up casseroles like this Chicken Tetrazzini in minutes.

I used linguine noodles in this version of Chicken Tetrazzini. Chicken Legs prefers the thicker noodles to my usual thin spaghetti noodles. Over all, this Chicken Tetrazzini was a hit! We served it with some green beans and homemade rolls. You could also serve this with the Creamy Italiano Salad I posted yesterday. That actually sounds really delicious! Totally doing that next time!

  1. If I made this as a freezer meal would I cook it first then stick it in the freezer? How long in the oven once it's thawed?
