One Pot Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

One pot meals are great for dinner ideas if you want to cut down on post supper dishes! This cheesy chicken spaghetti is delicious and simple to make. It’s comfort food with a little spiciness on the back end from the hatch green chili’s. I think your family will love it and be asking for seconds!

I prefer making this as above but there are ways to simplify if if you would like to save time and I still think it would be delicious.  You could use bacon pieces instead of cooking the pound of bacon.  That would save around 15 min.  I would prob use around 1 cup.  Also,  you could get a rotisserie chicken if you don’t want to cook the chicken although it will still take a little time to remove the skin and meat from the bones.  Lastly,  I prefer to shred my own cheese as it melts bettter not having the “anti-caking” agent on it but pre shredded cheese will be fine as a substitute.  I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know if you have any feedback in the comments.  Thank you!

    I made this with penna pasta instead . It’s soo good! I prefer to cook the bacon and shred the cheese myself too.

    Just found this recipe and have everything to make it except for the hatch chilis. Is there anything else you’d recommend in place of that?

      You can leave em out, just won’t be as spicy. Still tasty though!

"Trashed" Wings

"Trashed Wings" originated in St. Louis, MO and I had them for the first time last summer. Made them at home less than a week after that and now they are a semi regular menu item around our house. They are easy to make, here is how you do it! Note: They are called "trashed" wings bc your oil will be trashed after making them due to cooking the already dipped in buffalo sauce.
