In honor of National Spaghetti Day, I am offering this recipe. My sainted mother, Millie, was widowed at a young age and used to make this crowd pleaser so she could serve a "comfort food" meal without breaking the bank. It pairs well with a nice salad! I tweaked several things over the years and make this dish a couple of times when it gets cool here in San Diego County (40's to 50 degrees). LOL! I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add bouillon cubes and salt to taste to 2 quarts water. Bring to boil - add chicken breasts and cook 15 min. (or until no longer pink inside). When they cool, cut into bite size pieces or shred, whichever you prefer.
  3. Cook spaghetti in salted water according to pkg. directions until al dente - DO NOT OVERCOOK!

  5. Put cooked spaghetti & chicken in with the large bowl with creamed ingredients. Pour into 9 X 13 baking dish. Top with shredded cheese, and crushed saltines w/ butter. Bake 35-45 min. until bubbly. Enjoy! (IF there is any leftover, heat w/ a little milk or cream to maintain the creaminess!)
