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!

How To Make chicken spaghetti with a twist

  • 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!
