The Best Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe

When you’re cooking for a family, you can never have too many chicken recipes. Chicken is cheap, it’s healthy, and it’s easy to cook in lots of different ways. And chickens are easier on the environment than methane-burping cows, so you can pat yourself on the back for being kind to the earth as well.

Here’s one chicken recipe no busy cook should be without: Easy Chicken Tetrazzini. It’s a delicious, rich casserole with chicken, mushrooms, and pasta in a creamy, cheesy, savory sauce. And it only uses one pan (well, okay, and one mixing bowl), so there are fewer dishes to wash up.

If you’ve seen recipes for chicken tetrazzini before and thought it looked too complicated, don’t worry. We’re not going to mess around with sautéing fresh mushrooms or whipping up a béchamel sauce from scratch. We’re just going to open up a couple of cans of cream soup and whisk them together with sour cream, melted butter, chicken broth, and salt and pepper.

Then we’ll toss all that with the cooked pasta and chicken, top it with cheese, and bake it. And in 45 minutes, we’ll have a version of chicken tetrazzini that’s just as rich and savory as those fancy recipes, and with a lot less work.

  2. Jackie Moreau says:

    Loved it! Will definitely make it again. Next time I’ll cut it in half though. The recipe was just too much for me and my husband. But, was delicious!

    1. I freeze chicken pasta recipes with no problem!

  3. Could you keep this in the crock pot on warm , without the spaghetti getting mushy? Thinking of making this for Election Day to take for my Workers,do it would have to be in the crock pot from 5 am to 7 pm

    1. That should work out ok Trudy. It really depends on how your “warm” setting runs.

  4. Kaylyn Lowery says:

    I just made this tonight! I shredded my chicken after I baked it in butter and seasonings. I then shredded it and pan fried it. It was amazing will totally be a new favorite.
