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 love this, and so far everyone I’ve served it has too!
    I usually use rotini or rigatoni instead of spaghetti, and I only use one can of cream of chicken soup. I add a small can of evaporated milk instead, and it turns out great! I’m pretty sensitive to overly salty foods, and this was the perfect solution for my taste.
    Thank you for a fantastic dinner that is ALWAYS a huge success!
