This is Jamie's favorite thing that I make. It's a variation of a casserole that my mom used to make when I was a kid.
1 package skinless, boneless chicken tenders (or you can use breasts or thighs)
1 package spaghetti noodles
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
Boil the chicken, then dice into cubes. Cook, drain, and rinse the spaghetti noodles (I let the noodles cook while I cut the chicken). After draining noodles, put them back into the pot and add the cream soups, along with 1 can water. Mix while adding chicken. Once the noodles, cream soups, water, and chicken are all mixed, I put them into a 9x13 dish and top with the cheddar cheese. Then I bake on 325 until the cheese is thoroughly melted. It is usually around 15 minutes or so.
This is a dish that is even better the 2nd day. We always eat the whole thing - sometimes we each have it 3 times before it's all gone.
We had this tonight. It takes about an hour to prepare, so I normally make it on a Sunday afternoon, so we can use it for lunches and dinners during the week. Today I happened to make it home a little early, so I had time to make it on a weeknight.
Elise, you told me tonight that you didn't want any of that stuff that is yucky (in reference to my casserole). I just know that one of these days you are going to like it! When grandma made it for me when I was little, she used to put mushrooms in it. I don't make it that way, because Coach doesn't like mushrooms very much.
