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

Step-by-Step

  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!
