Chicken Spaghetti Recipe
Creamy chicken spaghetti is one of those meals that you can whip up when you are standing in the pantry, staring at the cans and saying….”OK, what do we eat”. Most everyone has a stack of Rotel and cream of chicken in the cupboard and combined with your shredded chicken and cheese, this recipe makes a kid friendly, family loved meal that will fill you up in a minute.
- 8 oz Velveeta cheese, cubed
- 4 oz cream cheese, cubed
- 1 can, 14.5 oz, Italian style diced tomatoes (Rotel is fine)
- 1 can, 10.5 oz, cream of chicken soup
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 cup cooked chicken, shredded (Feel free to cut some corners and use rotisserie from the store)
- 8 oz spaghetti, cooked and drained
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Prep is everything when you cook, so grab all of your ingredients, open your cans, and prep your spices so they are easily accessible. Nothing makes a kitchen more fussy and messy than having to run in and out of the fridge and in and out of the cupboard.
Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Recipe
Before you get started on this homemade baked chicken spaghetti, you need the chicken! You can take the easy way out and grab some rotisserie chicken from the supermarket and use that, or you can home make some chicken by either boiling (so you can shred) or baking and cutting up into cubes. Personally I prefer a shredded rotisserie chicken option!
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9×9 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Add cheeses, tomatoes, soup, garlic and Italian seasoning to a saucepan.
Heat on medium heat, stirring frequently until all cheese is melted and mixture is smooth.
Stir in chicken and pasta and mix well to evenly coat.
Pour into prepared pan and top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until heated through in the center.
