Cheesy Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

cheesy_cheddar_chicken_spaghetti_casseroleI always get so sad when Christmas is over.   I hate taking the lights down and especially the tree and decorations.  It just brightens up the house and the cold of winter so much.  Then we are just left with cold and snow.

I try to think of the things that I like about the winter time.  Which sometimes is hard because I hate the snow!  But I do like to feel all cozy inside in a big sweatshirt and blanket and some hot chocolate.  Of course I love soups, and especially casseroles this time of year.   I love when I find a casserole that that family instantly loves and this one was just that!

The flavors are incredible in this casserole.  Creamy delicious spaghetti with chicken topped with bread crumbs and cheddar cheese.  The entire family gobbled it down.   It makes enough to feed a small army and my hubby looked forward to having it for left overs the next day.  It can also be frozen to which is great to reheat for busy nights.  Our family loved this recipe and I know that yours will too!

  1. This recipe is a keeper! My husband loved it. It’s a large recipe for just the 2 of us, but BONUS, we froze the leftovers and it was even more delicious reheated. This is a comfort food for sure. Perfect for winter.

  2. This was so good! I added some garlic and a bit more cayenne pepper.
    It was so creamy and flavorful.
    Even my picky eater loved it!
    Husband asked me to put it in rotation.
    Thanks

  3. Help! I am trying to make this for dinner but I am not sure how much spaghetti in grams? The box I have is 454 grams but I think this is more then the recipe calls for?

    Also 2 tbsp of dried parsley looks like a lot? Is this the correct measurement?

    Thanks 🙂

    1. 454 grams of spaghetti is one pound. Recipe calls for 12 ounces or 3/4 pound. 2 TB of parsley seems correct. If you are worried or don’t like parsley use 1 TB. Dried parsley does not add a great deal of flavor.
