This is a Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond recipe. We enjoyed it and I thought you might also.

whole raw chicken, cut into pieces
1 lb
thin spaghetti, borken into 2-inch pieces
2 can(s)
cream of mushroom soup (10-oz.)
2 1/2 c
grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 c
finely diced green pepper
1/4 c
finely diced red bell pepper
medium onion, finely diced
1 tsp
seasoned salt
1/4 tsp
cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the chicken pieces to the boiling water and boil for a few minutes, then return the heat to medium-low and simmer, 30-45 minutes. Remove the chicken and 2 cups of the chicken broth from the pot. When the chicken is cool, remove the skin and pick out the meat (a mix of dark and white) to make 2 generous cups.
3Cook the spaghetti in the same chicken broth until al dente. Do not overcook. When the spaghetti is cooked, combine with the chicken, mushroom soup, 1 1/2 cups cheese, the green peppers, red peppers, onions, seasoned salt, cayenne, and sprinkle with salt an pepper. Stir in 1 cup of the reserved chicken cooking broth, adding an additional cup if needed.
4Place the mixture in a casserole pan and top with the remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover and freeze up to 6 months, cover and refrigerate up to 2 days or bake immediately until bubbly, about 45 minutes. (If the cheese on top starts to get too cooked, cover with foil).
5NOTE: Next time I make this, I will do it more quickly by buying a rotisserie chicken and using the meat from that. Cooking the chicken myself, didn't add anything to the dish.
