What Ingredients Are In Chicken Spaghetti?

Chicken Spaghetti reminds me of an Italian snack known as “spaghettata di mezzanote.” In Italy, “midnight spaghetti” is what they’ll throw together for a snack before hitting the sack! It is a good supper alternative to “spaghettata” if you need some protein to get you through a busy evening.

With no exotic ingredients, it’s simple to find substitutes if necessary!

  • Pasta: This recipe is made with spaghetti but any pasta would work. Cook it al dente and drain well.
  • Creamy Sauce: Cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, Velveeta cheese and milk all combined to create a smooth and creamy sauce. You’ll want to dig in before it’s even finished cooking!
  • Mix-Ins: this recipe adds cooked chicken and petite diced tomatoes, but get creative and add in any veggies you enjoy. Green peppers or a can of mushrooms would be a great addition!

Making Chicken Spaghetti on the Stove Top:

  2. When almost melted, add soup, whisking until smooth. Stir in drained tomatoes.
  3. Add the spaghetti and chicken. Toss ingredients, covering with sauce

Serve steaming hot with your favorite sides!

Making It In A CrockPot:

This recipe is as simple as slow cooker meals come! Just place all the ingredients in the crockpot and stir. It will be waiting for you when you come home!

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a greased slow cooker.
  2. Stir every 30 minutes or so. (If leaving the house, mix in a little extra milk when you come home.)

Cook on low two hours or until all the Velveeta is melted and steaming hot.

The Best Chicken Spaghetti Sides

Chicken Spaghetti tastes great with a spinach strawberry salad. Try it with a Southwestern Salad with avocado dressing, or a Caesar Salad. Cheesy breadsticks with Italian seasoning are terrific for dipping in the cheesy sauce!

How to Reheat It

Chicken Spaghetti shines when you reheat it, just make it into a casserole!

  1. Place it in a greased baking pan. If the pasta has dried out at all or isn’t saucy enough, stir in some milk.
  2. Sprinkle extra cheese on top, and put in the oven at 350°F. Bake 20 minutes or until it is piping hot.

Another option is to grease or line muffin tins, fill with ½ cup of Chicken Spaghetti. Bake with cheese on top for about 15 to 20 minutes for a fun lunch for the kids! These “Chicken Spaghetti Nests” can even be reheated in the microwave at school!

As you can see, Chicken Spaghetti is as versatile and satisfying a dish as any you could find!
