This Monterey Chicken Spaghetti is THE BEST!!! Chicken spaghetti loaded with spinach, Monterey Jack cheese and french fried onions. Seriously delicious! I wanted to lick my plate this was so good. I’m not a big spinach person, but this was the perfect amount. If you like lots of spinach, feel free to double the amount. I am of the opinion that a little spinach goes a long way!

This Monterey Chicken Spaghetti can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen for later. I usually make it the day before and heat it up for dinner. This makes a lot of chicken spaghetti. You can easily split the pasta between two pans and bake one now and freeze one for later.

We served this Monterey Chicken Spaghetti with a salad and some garlic bread. This was one of our favorite meals. So yummy and cheesy. I also LOVED the crunch from the french fried onions. Give this a try. I know it will be a hit – even with the spinach haters!

  1. I am just short of a full container of sour cream – thoughts on using a little boursin cheese or maybe some cream cheese to make up for it? Thanks!

  2. This was delicious-I did use 8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms sauted in 2 T. butter and added the garlic, and a container of fresh spinach wilted down with the mushrooms. I also waited 20 minutes to add the fried onions. I suggest a HUGE bowl for mixing and cutting the pasta or breaking up before cooking for easier combining. Thanks for the recipe-oh and I used the Healthy Recipe soups.

  3. This was SO GOOD!! I baked a large spaghetti squash at 400° for 45 minutes, let it cool while I mixed the other ingredients together, than added the squash in place of pasta! Turned out delicious! Thank you!!

  4. Do you leave off the top layer of French fried onions when you bake this ahead and refrigerate overnight?

    Then, when you reheat it the next day, do you usually reheat the whole pan in the oven or just microwave individual portions?

  5. Could you use cooked broccoli instead of spinach? We aren’t much on spinach! Love all your recipes. I fixed the breakfast sausage and cream cheese recipe for supper the other night, my husband said it was the best he’d had!! Also, your corn dip is my go to dip now! Delicious!!

    1. I think that would be fine. Just throw in what you like!

      I’m thrilled to hear you are enjoying the recipes!! That sausage & cream cheese casserole is so addictive!!! We are making the corn dip for the Super bowl – SO good!! Thanks for all your support!????

    1. I get it! I loathe onions too – except these crunchy canned onions. I can eat them all straight out of the can. You can leave them out and the recipe will still be fine.

    2. They also have the fried Jalapeno's now that are just like the friend fried onions. They are right beside the onions in my grocery store. I bet those would be good!

  6. I like a good amount of sauce with my pasta, can a bit of milk or half and half be added to accomplish that? Or will it ruin the dish and make onions mushy? Thoughts?

  8. This looks so yummo! Gonna try it tonight, and share with all my friends here in Monterey! Oh, your photos spell it monetary, just to let you know!
