This is my "Go-To" dish that I use when I need to take something to a family that needs some extra lovin' and comfort food. It refrigerates really well and the leftovers are even better.
Chicken Spaghetti Casserole
8 oz thin spaghetti
1/4 cup butter
1/2 large onion chopped
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups sliced cremini (baby bella) mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups of chicken broth
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups sour cream
pepper to taste
salt to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese + 1/2 cup
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup StoveTop stuffing (uncooked)
(looks like a lot but you probably have most of these things in your house already)
Heat Oven to 350. Grease a 9/13 baking dish. Boil the spaghetti noodles 3 minutes less than instructed on the package.
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Cut chicken into bite size pieces and saute just until the outside is done, don't worry about the inside, it will cook in the oven. Add mushrooms, onions and garlic and saute until onions are translucent.
Add broth, soups, sour cream, 1 cup of the cheddar, salt and pepper and mix well.
Add the spaghetti and toss.
Spoon into the baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and the remaining cheddar. Sprinkle the StoveTop over the top and bake for 35 - 40 minutes.
(My husband loves stuffing and I don't so I make it as a side dish a couple times a month and I love that I can now buy it in a canister so I can just take out whatever I need.)
Makes enough for a family of six. I halved the recipe above since this dish was just for my husband and myself.
What's your "Go To" recipe for showin' some love?
And now, I just have to show you a video of my favorite character, Dot. Try to watch the whole thing, it's hilarious.
