Chicken Rotelle

Samantha Dean Recipe

By Samantha Dean Tanta


A family favorite. Great for cold winter nights or when you need to make a meal stretch. Goes wonderfully with a green salad and french bread!

pinch tips: Non-Stick Rice Every Time


whole chicken
2 can(s)
rotelle tomatoes
1 1/2 lb
thin spaghetti
1 box
(lg.) velveeta cheese
salt to taste
pepper to taste
garlic salt or powder to taste
celery stalks, sliced thin

Directions Step-By-Step

In a LARGE pot boil chicken and spices together until chicken is done. Remove chicken and set aside to cool (reserving chicken and stock). Bring stock back to a boil and cook spaghetti in it while deboning the chicken(you may have to add more water to the pot, just remember to reseason if you do). Break or cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Add chicken and rotelle tomatoes and celery into the pot with the spaghetti (don't worry that the spaghetti isnt done yet, it will have more time to cook).
A little at a time start to add the cubed velveeta into the pot, constantly stirring and letting it melt.Continue this process until all the cheese has been incorporated and the noodles are done. Remove from heat and allow to stand for a few minutes before serving. Sauce thickens as it begins to cool.

For anyone wanting to try this, I made it again the other night but discovered velveeta has come out with a Queso cheese and we substituted that this time. OMG!! I don't know if I will ever make it with the regular velveeta again!!! Anyone who likes a milder cheese or a white cheese, this is the one for you!!
