HOW TO MAKE CREAMY DREAMY CHICKEN AND SPIRALS CASSEROLE

Step 2: Use cooking spray to grease a 9 × 13-inch pan. Set aside.
Step 3: Bring to a boil a large pot with salted water. Add in and cook the pasta for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through. Drain and rinse in cold water.
Step 4: Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Slowly add in the flour and stir until smooth.

Step 6: Pour the wine into the saucepan, then, add in the nutmeg, mustard, and salt.
Step 7: Add in the cooked pasta, top with the pieces of chicken, and pour the sauce on top.
Step 8: Combine the parmesan cheese, butter, and cracker crumbs in a small mixing bowl until well mixed. Sprinkle this over the pasta chicken.
