Chicken Spaghetti

Chicken Spaghetti

Our Chicken Spaghetti, served at our local Sweets & Eats, still conjures up heavenly dreams.  Just today our local newspaper, The Lufkin Daily News, referred to a local chicken spaghetti as “in fact, very reminiscent of the much-beloved chicken spaghetti that was served at the now defunct Sweets & Eats.”  Thanks Brie Bradford for loving our recipe and reminding me that it needs to be shared!

Chicken Spaghetti

Shortly after introducing this recipe as a Take and Bake at Sweets & Eats, I was asked by a local grocery to create recipes for Sarah’s Simple Solutions.  Both recipes are equally good.  The second one is easier and faster.  I am just not a fan of canned soup.  You decide!
