There is also a shortcut quick version to this recipe if you're in a hurry, but I would say try the longer recipe when you have time. You should try this over your favorite Pasta, Enjoy Good Food

How to Make Chicken Spaghetti in Red Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Instructions
    Cut the chicken into pieces and boil in salted water until meat is cooked through. Reserve 2 cups of the broth, reserve remainder for another use; set meat aside to cool. Once cooled, debone and shred the meat, discarding the bones; set aside. Prepare pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain, rinse, drizzle with olive oil and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the chopped onion, garlic and salt, saute for about 5 minutes or until veggies are tender. Add the tomatoes, basil, tomato sauce, sugar, parsley flakes, Italian seasoning, Cajun seasoning, poultry seasoning; bring to a boil. Add bay leaves, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until reduced and thickened. Stir in the chicken and enough broth from the stock you reserved from the hen (or use a commercial chicken stock) until it reaches the desired consistency. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Note: This is a fresh, fairly light sauce recipe. If you prefer a heavier sauce to pasta ratio, you'll need to increase the sauce portion.

    Shortcut this: Use a rotisserie chicken, canned diced tomatoes, and commercial broth to speed things up. Add 2 teaspoons of a chicken base, to boost the flavor. You can use canned Mushrooms too. You'll probably need at least one large can diced tomatoes (28 ounce/1 pound 12 ounce), retaining the juices.
