Since working overnights for my store’s Inventory Prep Team, I have needed quick and simple, yet filling recipes for dinner. Thankfully, after the 16th I will be back dayside, but at the moment things have been tough. Maybe it’s simply my body trying to adjust, but something has got to give. Tonight, I will be making an old favorite recipe and wanted to share it with you all. Chicken Spaghetti is both super easy to make and equally delicious! There is two ways to cook this, so I will share with you both ways and you can pick which is easiest for you! Let’s get started shall we?
Easy Chicken Spaghetti
1 (16 oz) Spaghetti Noodles Box
2 cups. Cooked Chicken (diced)
2 (10 ounce) cans. Cream of Chicken Soup (undiluted)
1 cup. Salsa
1 cup. Sour Cream
2 cups. Mexican Cheese Blend (or whatever cheese blend you like most)
1 tsp. Taco Seasoning
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Paprika, Onion Powder
1/2 cup. Red Green Pepper (diced)
1/2 cup. Green Diced Pepper (diced)
1 cup. Cooked Broccoli
Cilantro (chopped; optional)
Directions for Baking Dish
Step One: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook noodles via the directions on the package. Once finished, drain.
Step Two: In a large bowl mix all ingredients together including noodles and stir to combine.
Step Three: Pour into a 9×13 sprayed baking dish and top with an extra 1/2 cup of cheese and the chopped cilantro.
Step Four: Cover with foil and cook in the oven for roughly 30 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble.
Step Five: Carefully scoop mixture onto plates or into bowls (your preference) and allow mixture to sit for 4-5 minutes before sitting to cool down.
Directions for Crock-Pot
Step One: Combine all ingredients into the crockpot except for the noodles.
Step Two: Allow mixture to cook on High for 3.5 – 4 hours to allow chicken to cook through.
Step Three: Cook spaghetti noodles; drain.
Step Four: Pour in the cooked noodles and 1/2 cup extra cheese and stir.
Step Five: Allow ingredients to cook for an extra 25 – 30 minutes.
Step Six: Carefully scoop mixture onto plates or into bowls and serve. Enjoy!
*Note – Mixture will be hot so allow about 4-5 minutes for cooling unless you can handle the heat.
