Chicken Spaghetti


Recently, I heard a lady talking about a recipe for chicken spaghetti that had black olives, Rotel tomatoes, cheese, and other good stuff.  I didn’t ask for the recipe, but when I looked up a recipe for it, I came up with the Paula Deen Chicken Spaghetti recipe from her website.  This recipe has quite a few ingredients, but it didn’t take long to put together before work this morning.  Then after work, I popped it in the oven, made a salad, and dinner was complete!  It made a very full 9×13 casserole dish.  The original recipe said it makes 10-12 servings.  We’ll be eating leftovers tomorrow night with Kelli & Justin, but I think the leftovers could easily be frozen for another time.  It would be a great potluck dish, too!
