Chicken Tetrazzini is the perfect way to use up your leftover poultry. The recipe is excellent using either chicken or turkey!
After days of turkey leftovers at Christmas or Thanksgiving, this is such a tasty and delightful way to change up your menu! I also love to keep a rotisserie chicken handy in my refrigerator for sandwiches during the week!
I clean the carcass of all its meat to create a quick Chicken Tetrazzini! Such a simple and speedy meal for a busy weeknight!
There are really no universal standards for a tetrazzini. You can make many modifications according to your preferences:
- While I usually make my tetrazzini with poultry, it can also be made with seafood! It is so delicious with a combination of shrimp and scallops!
- I love to use mushrooms, however these can be omitted if you prefer.
- Cream of chicken or mushroom soup are both equally delicious in this recipe! Or if you don’t happen to have a can on hand you can create your own sauce like my Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce, which will work deliciously as well!
- I like to top this casserole with both cheddar and parmesan cheese, but mozzarella would work equally well.
- Crushed nuts such as almonds or pecans can also be sprinkled on the top and are a fun way to change the recipe up a bit.
We love to serve this up with a side salad and some cheesy bread.
