This will be the cheesiest Chicken Spaghetti you will ever have! It has a combination of 3 different kinds of cheeses. You’ve never had dinner like this before. Try it now!

Ingredients:

3 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp flour
1 ½ c chicken broth
4 tbsp butter
1 c mozzarella cheese, shredded
10 ounces diced tomatoes & green chilies
2 small boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced in half lengthwise
8 ounces Thin Spaghetti
1 small yellow onion, diced
¾ c milk
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded
red pepper flakes & chopped parsley, to garnish
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt/Pepper

Directions:

Prepare the oven and preheat it to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.

Apply cooking spray to the inside of a 9×13-inch casserole dish.

Use paper towels to pat dry the chicken slices, then season them with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Cook the chicken over medium-high heat for 5 minutes per side. Move to a clean plate and slice them into small cuts.

For the Sauce:

Reduce the heat, then add butter to the same pan and allow it to melt. Allow it to melt and scrape the bottom to deglaze it.

Stir in the onions and garlic, then saute for about 5 minutes or until soft and aromatic.

Add flour, then whisk and cook for another minute to remove the raw taste.

Stir in the chicken broth until well blended.

Whisk in the milk until the texture of the sauce becomes smooth.

Meanwhile, refer to the directions provided on the package of the pasta noodles on how to cook them. Drain and set aside.

Simmer the sauce, then add the softened cream cheese and stir until well blended.

Turn the heat down to low, then add the shredded cheddar cheese and stir until well blended.

Put the chicken back into the pan together with the tomatoes, then toss to mix.

Add the cooked noodles, then toss to coat with the sauce.

Move everything into the prepared casserole dish and spread it evenly.

Scatter the mozzarella cheese on top, then bake for 15 minutes. You can broil for 2 minutes if you prefer.

Remove the Chicken Spaghetti from the oven, then sprinkle freshly chopped parsley and red pepper flakes on top to garnish. Dish out!

Serve right away with garlic bread. Enjoy!

Notes:

Place any leftovers in an airtight container, then put them in the fridge. They can last up to 3 days or 3 months in the freezer. Reheat for a few minutes before serving again.
