Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by bananabreadeater

This is a super easy dish. Although it says bottled minced garlic, regular minced garlic works just the same! I got this from Also reduced-fat cheddar works well.

Made this recipe to share with a neighbor couple who likes my mac & cheese & almost anything else that's cooked pasta! Loved the chicken/spaghetti combo, though it's obvious that the cooking time is definitely more than 0 minutes! I used chicken breasts this time around, but another time I'd like to try some diced BBQ chicken, which would give it even more flavor from both the BBQ & from using a combo of white & dark meat! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
