Chicken Tetrazzini – chicken, cheese, creamy sauce – so good we ate this 2 days in a row! Great make ahead meal or freezer meal. Comfort food at its best! Spaghetti, chicken, chicken broth, cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, worcestershire sauce, onion and cheddar cheese. Great for a potluck! Everyone LOVES this easy chicken casserole recipe!
I love Chicken Tetrazzini. I have a couple of recipes on the blog, but I am always up to try a new version. This version is from my friend, Katherine. She posted this on her blog and it was just different enough from my versions that I wanted to give it a try.
This is SO delicious! We ate this for dinner and again for lunch the next day. I really, really liked it. I loved the cheddar cheese. My Chicken Tetrazzini recipes use parmesan cheese. This was a nice change for us.
I took a shortcut and used a whole rotisserie chicken. If you don’t want to use a rotisserie chicken, just cook up 4 chicken breasts. You can also assemble this ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake.
