Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti


When my daughter was first born, we had a friend bring us dinner. She had made a chicken spaghetti casserole and let me tell ya, it was amazing!! Her version had a kick to it, and was packed with flavor. My husband and I got the recipe from her and have made it a few times over the years. With my kids getting a bit older and not liking spicy food, I decided to change up the recipe and tweak it to something the kids would enjoy. I ended up coming across The Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Spaghetti recipe. It looked and sounded amazing, so I read through the reviews of it, made the changes that everyone suggested, as well as made my own changes, and now, this dish is out of this world! My kids go crazy over it, it is amazing reheated the next day, and a real crowd pleaser. It can literally feed my entire family of 5 two times!! If you love spaghetti, chicken, and cheese; run to the store and grab the ingredients for dinner tonight, you’ll be glad you did!!

    In the recipe you mention red pepper flakes but in the ingredients you mention chipotle pepper. How much flakes do you suggest. Also, I would like to know the original is as I like spicey food too.
