  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) of cream of chicken soup (family size can)
  • 1 block (8 ounces) of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) of ranch seasoning mix (use the dips packet for more ranch flavor)
  • 8 ounces of spaghetti noodles
  • 2 cups of shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)


  1. Prepare Spaghetti Noodles:
    • Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil over high heat.
    • Add a pinch of salt to the boiling water.
    • Add the spaghetti noodles to the boiling water and cook them according to the package instructions, typically around 8-10 minutes, or until they are al dente (firm to the bite).
    • Once the noodles are cooked, drain them in a colander and set them aside. Optionally, you can drizzle a little olive oil over the noodles to prevent them from sticking together.
  2. Prepare the Sauce:
    • In a large saucepan or skillet, combine the cream of chicken soup, softened cream cheese, and ranch seasoning mix.
    • Place the saucepan over medium heat.
    • Use a spatula or whisk to stir the ingredients together continuously until the cream cheese is fully melted and the mixture is smooth and well combined. This may take a few minutes, so be patient and keep stirring to prevent any lumps from forming.
  3. Add Shredded Chicken:
    • Once the sauce is smooth and creamy, add the shredded cooked chicken to the saucepan.
    • Stir well to coat the chicken evenly with the sauce.
    • Allow the chicken to heat through in the sauce. This usually takes about 5 minutes, during which you should continue to stir occasionally to ensure even heating and flavor distribution.
  4. Combine with Spaghetti Noodles:
    • Once the sauce and chicken are heated through, add the cooked spaghetti noodles to the saucepan.
    • Use tongs or a large spoon to gently toss the noodles with the sauce until they are well coated.
    • Continue to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring gently, to allow the flavors to meld together and the noodles to absorb some of the sauce.
  5. Serve:

    • Once everything is heated through and well combined, remove the saucepan from the heat.
    • Serve the white sauce spaghetti with shredded chicken hot, either directly from the saucepan or transferred to serving plates.
    • Optionally, garnish with chopped parsley or grated Parmesan cheese for added flavor and presentation.
