Not Mom's Chicken Tetrazzini

Valerie Johnson


This recipe for chicken tetrazzini is simple to make and much easier than the one my mom gave me years ago.

The original recipe is from Southern Living Magazine. I've made a few changes. It is one of my family's favorites. We usually serve it with a salad or green beans.
