My Mom has been making this for years and I love hers, but I recently had a different version at a casual wedding I attended and thought it was delicious so I tried to recreate that version. This is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it, my daughter loved it. The best part is I had all the ingredients on hand.

How To Make cheesy chicken spaghetti

  • 1
    Simmer chicken breasts on stovetop in enough water to cover until cooked through. I season the water with salt and pepper. When cooked through, remove chicken and allow to cool. Shred chicken and reserve cooking liquid and set both aside.
  • 2
    In same pot on low heat, combine soup, seasonings and cooking liquid from chicken and stir. Simmer 10 minutes stir occasionally. Add cheese and stir to melt then add chicken.
  • 3
    Add cooked spaghetti and stir gently and cook additional 5 or so minutes until heated through. At this stage, you can always add more cheese on top if you want before serving. I don't think it is possible to have too much cheese.
