    I baked my own chicken breast for a more homemade taste, but will use the canned in a bind! I put in french green beans and canned sliced carrots for a more filling dish. My husband is totally addicted to tetrazzini night, and makes delicious leftovers for lunch! Also tried it with bucatini pasta. It holds more of the sauce.

    Fixed this for tonight's dinner. Everyone raved about it. Even my 15 month old great grandson cleaned his plate. Will be making this again. It is so easy!!!!

    This is a go-to-meal at our house after Thanksgiving. I sub leftover turkey for the canned chicken, and it is awesome. Originally found this recipe about 15 years ago, as a way to use leftover turkey. This is so quick and easy, that even my 16 year old has even made it. Works great with a salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!

    I did make this recipe when I first started with this site and loved the ease and simplicity it offered. I especially enjoyed the addition of peppers, olives and extra garlic.

    This uses ingredients that I had ready to hand and the instructions couldn't be simpler: thrown it all in a pot and simmer until bubbly. And it came out tasting good! This is an excellent way to use up the last of a roast chicken. I will definitely make this again.
