Reviews for Cheddar Chicken Spaghetti
"This is a great go-to weeknight meal and very kid-friendly. I added some diced green pepper along with the pimentos for some extra flavor."
"A family favorite for sure! This dish was tasty and we had no leftovers. I look forward to making this again!"
"I made this for the first time tonight and my family ate it all and I had to make another batch! I used the rotisserie chicken you get from the deli and it turned out great. I decided to go with the pimientos and am glad I did. The only thing I changed was I increased the salt to a teaspoon. I am definitely making this again!"
"Since most reviews mentioned bland taste...... Suggestion....Every recipe I try out that has meat as an ingredient I ALWAYS marinate in seasonings that will compliment the overall dish. Like with this dish try marinating the chicken for about 24hrs. Sprinkle some garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper (whatever you like) on the chicken. Also cook the pasta in low sodium chicken broth, because like Emeril says "my water don't come seasoned."
"Excellent!!! The whole family loved it. Definitely will make this again."
"Quick, easy, and delicious !!!!"
"I made this for my family and they devoured it--even my four year old enjoyed it. I did't use the pimentos, and I thought it was a little bland. I like someone else's idea to saute some vegetables and mix those in--I will try that next time and add some garlic powder."
"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 :)"
