Happy Friday, Ya'll!! Hope this week has been great. It hasn't been too shabby for us. But good grief I'm glad it's Friday!
This week, I made a pretty awesome dish : Chicken Confetti Spaghetti. It was amazing, if I do say so myself. I have made Chicken Spaghetti before, and I felt like this dish was kind of similar. Needless to say, I will definitely be making this again - it was so yummy! And I served it with garlic toast and salad and sweet tea (with Splenda)!
This is the first time I have used the double oven - the bread needed baking while the main dish was baking - Katie loved being able to look in and watch it!
And don't you just love my apron??? It is so cute - love it! Thanks, Tanja!
Chicken Confetti Spaghetti
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 deli Rotisserie Chicken
- 8 oz spaghetti pasta
- 1 4 oz jar diced pimentos (drained)
- 8 oz of fresh diced onion/bell pepper/celery mixture
- 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1 14.5 oz can reduced sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Bring water to boil for pasta.
- Cut butter into small pieces; place in medium bowl and set aside to soften.
- Shred enough chicken to equal 2 1/2 cups.
- Break pasta into 2-inch-long pieces before adding to boiling water; cook and stir 5 minutes or until partially tender.
- Combine in microwave safe bowl: chicken, pimentos, onion/pepper/celery mixture, soup, salt, pepper, and broth. Cover and microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until hot and vegetables begin to soften.
- Drain pasta and stir into vegetable mixture; transfer to 2 quart baking dish. Stir cheese and bread crumbs into butter. Mix with fingertips until crumbly; spread evenly over chicken mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes or until bubbly around edges. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

After typing out this recipe, I realized that I used twice the amount of noodles and didn't double anything else - oops! It still tasted delicious! And it probably worked out, because Katie ate the noodles out of the mixture and that was about it (aside from the garlic bread, of course)! I also added about 1/4 block of Velveeta cheese that I had left over from something else. Adding cheese never hurts, in my opinion!
After dinner, we headed out to let Katie and Stella play with the sidewalk chalk I got them from the dollar bin at Target. It was definitely a hit - they loved it!
Don't they have good handwriting??? :)
Hope you have a fabulous Fall weekend!
