Classic Chicken Tetrazzini

5 2

This chicken tetrazzini is so simple to make and is a great way to transform leftover chicken or turkey.  Our broth, combined with half and half, makes a rich and savory base to envelope the chicken and veggies.  Everything cooks in the same skillet so clean up’s a breeze.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion, mushrooms, celery and carrots and cook until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.  Remove the skillet from the heat.

Step 2

Heat the butter in a 12-inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat.  Stir in the flour.  Gradually stir in the half-and-half and broth.  Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.

Step 3

Stir in the sherry and parsley.  Add the chicken, onion mixture, peas, spaghetti and cheese and toss to coat.  Season to taste.

Step 4

Heat the broiler.  Broil 4 inches from the heat until the chicken mixture is hot and bubbling and the top is browned.

    this was great for thanksgiving leftovers. I forgot about the chicken, substituted dried black mushrooms for button mushrooms, fresh carrots for frozen, and fresh leek for frozen peas. truly delicious.
