My Mom has been making this for years and I love hers, but I recently had a different version at a casual wedding I attended and thought it was delicious so I tried to recreate that version. This is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it, my daughter loved it. The best part is I had all the ingredients on hand.

Serves:

4-6

Ingredients

3-4
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
3 c
pre-shredded sharp cheddar (this was an approximate amount-i used alot)
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp
fajita seasoning (or may substitute salt & pepper to taste and additional 1/4 tsp garlic powder-it will change the taste slightly, but will still be yummy)
2 can(s)
(soup can) cooking liquid from chicken
12 oz
spaghetti noodles cook per pkg directions minus 2 minutes cooking time listed on box

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Simmer chicken breasts on stovetop in enough water to cover until cooked through. I season the water with salt and pepper. When cooked through, remove chicken and allow to cool. Shred chicken and reserve cooking liquid and set both aside.
2
In same pot on low heat, combine soup, seasonings and cooking liquid from chicken and stir. Simmer 10 minutes stir occasionally. Add cheese and stir to melt then add chicken.
3
Add cooked spaghetti and stir gently and cook additional 5 or so minutes until heated through. At this stage, you can always add more cheese on top if you want before serving. I don't think it is possible to have too much cheese.
