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!

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

Step-By-Step

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