Okay, so I wasn't too sure what to name this dish. It was one of those nights where I just saw what was hanging around the kitchen, and made it into something for dinner. Thankfully, we had good results! My husband & picky toddler both asked for 2nds!! The great thing is this recipe has no cream-of soups, or jarred sauce. & it is quite easy to make! So, here is the recipe to share with you. I hope you'll get a chance to try it. Enjoy!

Prep:

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
boneless chicken breast, cubed
12 oz
cooked spaghetti
2 Tbsp
butter
1/4 c
flour
1 1/2 c
milk
1 1/2 c
mexican blend shredded cheese
1/4 c
mozzarella cheese
1/2 tsp
cajun seasoning
2 tsp
olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small saucepan, heat the milk over a low flame to bring it to room temperature.
2
Add some oil to a preheated skillet. Add your 1 inch cubed chicken pieces and cook through until no longer pink & slightly browned.
3
While your chicken is cooking, you can start your sauce. Melt your butter over a medium high heat in a separate skillet. Once melted, add in your olive oil. Let that cook for about a minute.
4
Add in your flour - just a little at a time and whisk until you have a smooth paste.
5
Next, slowly add in your milk. Continue to whisk and allow sauce to thicken.
6
Then add in your cheese a little bit at a time. It will start to become creamy. And then add in your seasoning.
7
Once your sauce is finished, add your spaghetti and chicken into the skillet and mix well. Top with additional cheese if desired!
