Okay, I'm not sure if you have seen this or not but every time I hear Chicken Tetrazzini, I think of this Clip from the Soup. It kills me every single time and Mr. Schwartz and I love to go back in forth with our Chicken Tetrazzini comments. Oh you best believe I'm going to keep my man with my Chicken Tetrazzini.
Anyway, I really took the easy way out with this one, cream of soup baby. To be honest, this is the first Chicken Tetrazzini I have ever made so I really have nothing to compare it to but its pretty stinking tasty. And might I add insanely easy to throw together--you probably have everything in your fridge/pantry right now. I came home from running errands on Sunday afternoon and every last noodle of this was gone--Mr. Schwartz, Chicken Tetrazzini and football had a little date while I was out.
Someday I'll make the real version...until then, enjoy this cheaters (ha, get it watch the video) version of Chicken Tetrazzini.
Musical Selection: She Ain't Right by Lee Brice. Mr. Schwartz says this song is about me...I say I'm not thaaat crazy. But it's still pretty sweet.
I was planning on having this for lunch today but turns out Mr. Schwartz had other plans. Oh the patients I have.
Ps. This is my 100th post, yay!
Cheater Chicken Tetrazzini
1 Cup button mushrooms, diced
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Pound spaghetti noodles, cooked to just shy of al dente (less than done)
3 Cooked chicken breasts, cubed
1 Can cream of chicken soup (fat free is good)
1 8oz container of sour cream (fat free is good)
1 Teaspoon black pepper
1/2 Teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons dried parsley
1/2 Cup (or so) of the cooking water for the noodles
1 1/2 Cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Saute the mushrooms in a small pan with the butter. Set aside once golden brown on the edges.
Cook the pasta until just shy of al dente. The pasta will continue to cook in the oven. Reserve a bit of the cooking water to thin the sauce.
Combine the cooked chicken, pasta, mushrooms, soup, sour cream, salt, pepper, and parsley in a large bowl. Toss to coat. Thin the sauce a bit, with maybe a 1/2 of a cup of the noodle cooking water. Pour mixture into a greased (sprayed) baking dish.
Top with cheeses. Bake for 30-35 minutes until bubbly. If you desire, broil for two minutes to turn the top golden brown.
Top with additional parsley.
