How To Make cheesy sgettie casserole

  • 1
    Fill a medium pot with water and put it on the stove, add the chicken breasts and bring to a boil. If they are frozen they will take about 40 minutes on a low boil to be cooked to fall apart shreddable status. If they are defrosted it takes 20 minutes tops.

    While the chicken is cooking fill another pot full of water and bring to a boil. Add in the pasta and cook a minute less than the directions call for. Don't forget to salt your pasta water! Strain pasta and set aside.
  • 3
    Preheat your oven to 360.

    Once the chicken is cooked through put it onto your cutting board and shred or chop up into little pieces. Places them back into the same pot on a low heat.

    Now with the can of Rotel you can either blend the contents in a blender so that is a smooth consistency before adding it to the chicken, or if you don't mind the chunks of tomato you can leave it hole and just dump it in with the chicken.
