The BEST Chicken Tetrazzini

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 grandmother’s recipe with sour cream in the mixture. I thought that sounded interesting, so I gave it a try!

How to Make Chicken Tetrazzini

This chicken casserole was delicious and easy to make. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze for later. I 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 shortcuts. 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 in minutes.

To make this casserole start with boiling the pasta. While the pasta is cooking stir together the chopped chicken, soups, sour cream, butter, broth, salt, pepper, garlic powder. Add the cooked pasta and pour it into the pan. That is it! The hardest part of the whole process is waiting on the water to boil for the pasta.

What to Serve With Chicken Tetrazzini

I used linguine noodles in this version of Chicken Tetrazzini. Chicken Legs prefers the thicker noodles to my usual thin spaghetti noodles. Overall, this 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! Here are a few more recipes from the blog that go great with this delicious chicken casserole:

  1. This is unbelievably good! My husband loved it. I didn't have mozzarella so I used string cheese but utter than that I made as directed. Great recipe!

    1. Absolutely! Take it out while preheating the oven so it can start to get to room temperature. You may need to add 5 or 10 minutes to the cooking time since it will be colder going in the oven.

  2. To make sure I'm doing this right, you just prep it all throw it in the pan,cover will foil and freeze. Then bake the 45 minutes after taking it out the night before to thaw?

  3. I don't comment very often on any of these but really if you only pick one foodie to follow it should be this one… I appreciate all the sharing and advising and the recipes are good and the food is delicious

  4. First, I love your recipes! When do you use the chicken broth? It's in the list of ingredients, but I don't see it used in the instructions.

  5. Steph, your recipes are always sooooo yummy and not too difficult. YOUR site is my very favorite place to go for all sorts of good recipes. You NEVER disappoint. Thanks!
