This is the CHICKEN SPAGHETTI I told y’all about that I made in high school in Gourmet Foods class! I’ve cleaned it up a bit, but still making it almost 25 years later!
You can sub rotisserie chicken instead of cooking it yourself if you prefer. And a majority of the cooking is just throwing things into a pot and stirring!
It’s just as good the next day, so if you’re a leftovers family, this one is for you!
