This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Jennifer Colson.  She calls the recipe chicken tetrazzini. I already have a couple of tetrazzini recipes, so I call this Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole. We thought this was great. It makes a ton. This would be a great potluck dish.  You can make this casserole of time and freeze or refrigerate for later.

I suggest dividing this into two 9-inch pans and freezing one of them for later. Each pan would serve about 5 or 6 people. This is good reheated for lunch or dinner the next day. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us Jennifer!

  1. I made this Sunday night and my family loved it. I did make a few changes. I used alfredo sauce instead of cream if chicken because i have any and used mozzarella cheese instead cheddar cheese because i have any and i sprsprinkled parmesan cheese on top because i didn't have bread crumbs. My daughter said i should make this more often. I also cut the recipe in half. The next time i be making by the recipe. I will make due have all the ingredients. Thank you for sharing

  2. I am making this tonight but i am definately adding some onions!! and 1 can cream chicken soup, one mushroom, and adding fresh mushrooms as well!

  3. Delicious! Made this for family and everyone raved. Didn't change a thing. I'm a firm believer in trying the recipe as is the first time, then tweak if needed – no tweaking necessary here!

    1. I have made this several times and followed the directions exactly as written and it really was wonderful. The last time I doubled it for a large group. This time I will be making 3 batches for an even larger group! Funny thing though, I really thought this recipe had red pepper flakes in it previously?? I must be going crazy. LOL Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

  4. My noodles cooked away and it ended up more like a stew It was good but maybe ill use a thicker noodle or cook less time next time

  5. To cut down on calories could I use plain yogurt in place of the sour cream? love the idea of halfing this dish since there is only the 2 of us.

  7. I made this a while back, made 2, one for that night and one for the freezer. Only changes I made was left out It. Seas. because I don't like it and decreased the parsley. I also used 2 large cans of Hormel Chicken because that's all I had and I am too poor to buy a real one,already had the cans. I also used potato chips & crushed cornflakes on the top mixed with a little cheddar. My daughter who hardly eats anything absolutely loved it and begged me a week later to cook the one in the freezer too.! I liked it too. A lot like Turkey Tetrazinni! (this is under my daughter's name can't figure out how I commented under mine before on her laptop? ( I am MDT333 above)

  8. I used less parsley flakes because I am not a big fan of dried parsley. I increased the Italian seasoning so it would still be flavorful. I also used Ritz crackers instead of Italian bread crumbs on top. I can't wait for it to come out of the oven!!!

  10. Pinned this yesterday and made it last evening. Very, very good and we were able to freeze 3 meals from it as well. Not too shabby….4 meals for $16 🙂

  11. Can this be made the day before and cooked the next night? I'm not sure if it will be as creamy and get a little dry. Your thoughts. Thank you!
