I actually created this chicken spaghetti recipe out of desperation. My son Charlie was a picky eater when he was young, so I put together some of the things he likes. To this day, he says it's his favorite dish! —Ann Robinson, Dauphin Island, Alabama

My 80 yr old Grandmother has been making this for many years. It's so yummy! She uses Velveeta and adds celery and a bit of garlic powder. Great to see this has got around :)

My son and I aren't big fans of tomato, so this was a great substitute for spaghetti. We loved it! Two weeks after I had first made some, he reminded me that it was good. I think he wanted me to make it again! I will be soon.

This was pretty good. Next time, I'll add broccoli though!

Great recipe. Does need some flavor. I used roasted red peppers (had on hand) instead of pimientos. Also sauted mushrooms and onions in garlic butter and added. There wasn't a drop left in the dish. Family has requested this meal anytime. Going to try next time with mushroom soup.

Five stars for easiness, four stars for tastiness. This is comfort food.
