Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

"I first made this meal-in-one when I had unexpected guests," recalls Bernice Janowski of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. "It's popular when I'm in a hurry, because it takes minutes to assemble."

    This dish was delicious. I doubled the recipe for a crowd. They scraped the dish clean. I’m going to try with hamburger meat next time..

    I made this for supper tonight. It was pretty good and went together very easily. I used half of a 16 oz box of spaghetti and there's no way these are 1 cup servings. I would recommend throwing another chicken patty or two on top, because friends, these are some heaping helpings. I would say that 6 is a more likely estimate-- if you're feeding people with smaller appetites you might be able to squeeze 7 or 8 out of this dish.

    I'm pricky and not sure of spices ,but this was very good and the family loved it too. I used the chicken Tyson fully cooked Southern Style Breast Tenderloins and its a different then just plain old spaghetti and of course you have to have garlic bread to .:-)

    I used frozen chicken nuggets instead of the chicken patties, and it still turned out great. My picky husband and kids even liked it - it's a keeper!

    Really good! I was missing Italian seasoning so mine wasn't as flavorful as it could have been. I'd suggest jazzing it up with some more spices like garlic, etc .... Also, I didn't have any breaded fully cooked chicken patties so I just used chicken breasts that were already cooked. Turned out pretty good!
