Chicken spaghetti


In the late '80s when I used to be a drug rep I had the teaching centers in Jackson MS as part of my territory. I used to bring lunches frequently to the residents and would have it catered.

Frequently, the residents would request a specific caterer called My Favorite Speghetti. They had this chicken spaghetti that was spicy and awesome. I was not very heavy, not a red sauce and had chunks of chicken and vegetables in it. Over the years I have searched the interwebz for recipes like this to no avail.

Anyone familiar with this place and would care to steer me in the direction of a similar recipe?

TIA

No, not really. I remember it having cubes of chicken, onions, garlic and maybe celery in it, but not sausage, although that looks good to me. It was not a tomato based dish. It was a little spicey and maybe had some cheese in it IIRC.

Thanks for the post. What is the recipe for what you showed. Might be worth a try.

Shades of Mr. Kotter and the tuna casserole.

Maybe she can't cook?

Now that I've looked at the "better" versions of this recipe, I think she just picked a bad one. She does it with Rotel tomatoes and Velveeta. I've seen better recipes now. Might be able to make it work.

I'll post a recipe Wed. It's my bedtime, I really don't consider the dish a favorite, and I need to get Momma's recipe for you if I can...the best I've had.

Nope. Chicken Tettrazinni is better, IMHO.
