Reviews for Chicken Tetrazzini
"I have been looking for a recipe for chicken Tetrazzini, because my mother made this dish when I was young over 50 years ago. This recipe is the one. I used cremini mushrooms and all chicken broth. It was easy to make and so delicious, and the closest recipe I have found to my mother's. My husband gave it a thumbs up."
"This didn't have as much flavor as I was expecting, and the noodles were too mushy. Next time as other reviewers have suggested I will sautee some onions with the mushrooms, add some lemon juice and a dash of cayenne and cook the spaghetti just to al dente."
"I really liked this receipt a lot. I added garlic, Italian seasonings, it had a great balance as well. I have made the dish three times already. Awesome recipe."
"I've made this recipe several times, most recently two days ago with turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving. I've added two garlic cloves, crushed and use sherry instead of wine or additional broth. I've used dry or cream sherry, whatever I have on hand. A very tasty casserole that I will make again and recommend it to everyone."
"This was just ok to us."
"I cut this in half because it serves 8 and it's just my husband and me.......I don't think there will be enough for both of us. Getting ready to put it in oven....will update after eating"
"I used ham, even my kids liked it. And so easy! Loved it."
"Don't use cinnamon as a substitute for nutmeg."
"I used cooking sherry instead of the white wine but other than that followed the recipe as written. Delicious!!!"
"all I did was add cream of sherry at the end........absolutely divine!!!"
