I came up with this recipe while contemplating what to do with leftover chicken. It turned out so good, I had to post it to preserve it. I didn't add all of the cooked pasta to the pan so I could preserve some for kids, and because I like a lot of sauce to cover my noodles.
- 16 ounces thin spaghetti
- 2 -3 cups chicken, cooked and sliced
- 14 1⁄2 ounces chicken stock
