A staple here in south Louisiana. Wonderful one pot meal that is delicious as well as must have for social gatherings here in South Louisiana. This can also be changed up to add your favorite meat besides chicken, like cubed pork or shrimp or even a combo of chicken & pork which is very common.
rotesserie chicken - shredded & deboned
smoked sausage - sliced in thin pieces
medium onions - diced
medium bell pepper - diced
garlic - minced
celery stalks - diced
cream of mushroom soup
chicken broth (32 oz)
spaghetti noodles (14 - 16 oz)
salt & pepper to taste
loaf of garlic bread (optional)
1Melt butter in large Dutch oven pot, add seasoning vegetables & saute until just turning tender. Add sausage & brown for a few minutes. Stirring so vegetables dont burn.
2Add chicken, rotel, soup, & broth. Bring to a boil.
As soon as it comes to a boil, break spaghetti noodles in half add noodles to the mix. Bring this to another boil. At this point, add salt & pepper to taste. The salt taste should be a little heavy at this point because the noodles will soak up a good bit.
3Cover the pot & turn the heat to low/simmer. Cook until noodles are done & the liquid has been absorbed. This should be about 20 minutes or so.
Serve with hot crusty garlic bread.
