Chicken Spaghetti

Chicken Spaghetti is a hearty and flavorful dish that’s perfect for a satisfying meal. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lb Velveeta cheese, regular or Mexican
  • 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, regular or hot
  • 1 lb spaghetti pasta
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 can of cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, red or green, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Prepare the Chicken:

  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add the chicken breasts, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper. Boil the chicken until it’s completely cooked, which usually takes about 10 to 12 minutes.

2. Cook the Spaghetti:

  • Remove the cooked chicken from the pot. In the remaining chicken broth, cook the spaghetti pasta according to the package directions. Once the pasta is done, drain it and set it aside. Do not rinse the pasta.

3. Saute Onion and Bell Pepper:

  • In the same empty pot, melt the stick of butter. Saute the chopped onion and bell pepper until they become tender.

4. Combine Ingredients:

  • Add the can of Rotel tomatoes, cream of chicken soup, and cream of mushroom soup to the sauteed onion and bell pepper mixture. Mix these ingredients together.

5. Prepare Chicken:

  • Cut the cooked chicken into bite-size pieces and add it to the mixture in the pot.

6. Add Spaghetti:

  • Add the cooked spaghetti to the mixture in the pot.

7. Melt Cheese:

  • Cut the Velveeta cheese into cubes and stir it into the mixture. Continuously stir and heat the mixture until the cheese is thoroughly melted. Make sure to stir occasionally to prevent scorching.

8. Season and Serve:

  • Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste. Once the cheese is melted and everything is well combined, it’s ready to be served.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Garnish the Chicken Spaghetti with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve it with a salad and hot garlic bread for a complete and satisfying meal.

Enjoy your homemade Chicken Spaghetti! It’s a comforting and flavorful dish that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Here are some additional tips and variations to enhance your Chicken Spaghetti:

9. Veggie Variations:

  • Customize your Chicken Spaghetti with your favorite vegetables. You can add sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, spinach, or sliced black olives for added flavor and nutrition.

10. Seasoning Options:

  • Experiment with additional seasonings such as garlic powder, Italian seasoning, or crushed red pepper flakes for an extra kick of flavor.

11. Cream Alternatives:

  • If you prefer a lighter version, consider using reduced-fat or low-sodium cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups.

12. Cheese Variety:

  • Feel free to use different types of cheese, such as cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a cheese blend to add a different flavor profile.

13. Salsa for Heat:

  • If you like a spicier kick, you can replace the Rotel tomatoes with your favorite spicy salsa.

14. Grated Cheese Topping:

  • For a crispy, cheesy topping, sprinkle grated cheese (e.g., mozzarella, cheddar) over the dish before baking it until the cheese is bubbly and golden.

15. Creamy Alternative:

  • Instead of Velveeta, use a homemade cheese sauce by melting butter, adding flour to make a roux, then stirring in milk and grated cheese until smooth.

16. Leftovers:

  • This dish reheats well, so it’s great for leftovers. Simply store any extra portions in the refrigerator and reheat them when needed.

17. Add a Side:

  • Serve your Chicken Spaghetti with a side of garlic bread, a green salad, or steamed vegetables for a complete meal.

18. Dietary Variations:

  • Adapt the recipe to fit dietary preferences by using gluten-free pasta or dairy-free cheese alternatives for those with specific dietary needs.

19. Make It Ahead:

  • You can assemble the dish ahead of time and bake it later. Just keep it refrigerated until you’re ready to bake.

20. Freezing:

  • Chicken Spaghetti can be frozen for longer-term storage. Allow it to cool completely, portion it out, wrap in plastic wrap and foil, and freeze. When ready to enjoy, thaw and reheat in the oven.

These suggestions should help you create a Chicken Spaghetti that suits your taste and dietary preferences. Enjoy your delicious and comforting meal!
