"Easy, Easy, Easy!!! I got this recipe from an Aunt who made it for a family reunion. It has a great flavor and makes alot. Very Good! Does not include cooking time for the chicken."

Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I changed this around a bit -- it's a great way to get rid of leftover pasta. I used shredded mozzarella instead of Velveeta, and plain old diced tomatoes instead of Ro-tel. Going for the pseudo-Italian, and it worked great! Goes in the file for "what to do with the leftovers.""
"I used 2 large cans of white chicken and a 12 oz. bag of shredded cheddar cheese instead of the chicken breasts and Velveeta. Very tasty and easy. We really enjoyed. 8-)"
"A marvelous dish for a crowd. The flavors were wonderful together, complimenting each other and giving the dish a decidedly homestyle dish. I used ready-cut spaghetti which worked out well. It was easy to prepare, and was a memorable dish on our table. I will be using this dish again. Thanks for sharing, Anita."
"Easy, fast, and everyone loved it! A friend brought us this dish as a frozen casserole which we thawed and baked before serving. My kids loved it so much I had to find the recipe! We call it queso spaghetti. With regular Rotel it was great. I'd suggest using mild Rotel if making for people who prefer a milder flavor. Used the mushroom variety of recipe #360192 and it worked great. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Update: I have made this several times. If I'm cooking chicken breasts for this recipe, I boil the spaghetti in the hot broth after removing the chicken. Adds a lot of flavor."
"My husband turned up his nose when I told him what we were having for dinner. After he tasted it, he said I could definately make it again. He instructed me to give it 5 stars!"
"This was actually rather good. I did make a few changes, first, I subbed whole wheat spaghetti, and rather than layer each ingredient in the pan, I just mixed everything up in a bowl first and then dumped it in the baking pan. I noticed the spaghetti on top started to burn, while baking, so I would recommend covering the pan with foil while baking and remove for the last 5 minutes. Thanks for a yummy recipe. It made a lot, so we will have leftovers for lunch!"
"This was a huge hit with the family! I tweaked the recipe a little by adding can of mushrooms, minced garlic, dried minced onions and breadcrumbs. The two that turned their noses up when I told them what we were having had 2 helpings! I'm going to make this a regular dish!"
"In response to a previous reviewer, here are the proportions I used. One 10 3/4 oz, can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, one 10 oz. can of Rotel, 16 oz. chicken broth, and one pound of cooked chicken breast cut into bite-size pieces. Yesterday was a typical summer day in Huntsville, Texas and I didn't want to turn the oven on. I cooked the pasta in a six quart pan, drained it and added all of the other ingredients and put it on the stove top and cooked on low until everything was hot, bubbly and melted. It was rather "soupy", but I think it will thicken upon setting from the starch in the pasta. If you want your version drier, use less broth. I think a typical can of broth is about 14 1/2 ounces. I purchase the 32 oz. cartons of broth. I was extremely happy with the result!!! This will probably be my usual method of assembling this unless I take it to a function. One pan to wash made my day! Miss Anita, thank you for your excellent recipe! PS - By the time we got around to eating dinner, all of the extra liquid had been soaked up. It was creamy and delicious!"
"I give this recipe 5 stars for taste, but the recipe itself has issues. It needs to be better written.<br/><br/>Mainly it just needs measurements. 1 can of something is not a measurement. Is it a 10 ounce can or a 14 ounce can?<br/><br/>There needs to be a poundage listed for the chicken. How about 1 and 1/2 pounds instead of 4-6 breasts. I only had tenderloins on me at the time and I just estimated the number needed. If there was a poundage listed I would have no doubts how to make it."
"I made a recipe like this ,but I used cheddar cheese,angel hair pasta,velveeta cheese and rotel tomatoes. It was very good."
"Thank you for this recipe. I had not ever eaten chicken spaghetti let alone made it. It was delicious and very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly.Thank you again."
"I loved this chicken spaghetti! It was so simple and so yummy. My husband even commented on how good it was. I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom. I will definitely make this again!"
"UPDATE 2-2-10 ~ Made this for supper...made it exactly the way recipe called for and it was very good. What a meal that sticks to your ribs for cheap!! Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing."
"Quick, easy, and tasty! The only change I made was adding a can of cream of chicken soup as well, because the mixture seemed too soupy.<br/>Both my teenage girls enjoyed it, the picky 13 year old even had seconds! They also ate all the leftovers, which is a rarity in our house! The 13 year old has been asking every day since when I am making it again, so I'm doing it tonight :)"
"Fixed this tonight for my family and truly enjoyed it.although the cooking time for the chicken is not listed i boiled it for two hours. Other than that i followed the instructions as they are.will definitely be making this again"
"I used my daughter's recipe which called for 1 cup each of chopped celery, fresh mushrooms, 2 Tbsp. Worchester sauce, 1 garlic clove, 1 medium onion chopped, 3 medium chicken breasts, 1-1/2 cup cheddar cheese and 8 oz. thin spaghetti. Very good."
"I occasionally (probably not often enough!) cook and deliver casseroles to my elderly neighbors, and to my husband's parents, and am always alert for things like this, that are not "strange" or fussy, but that have just a bit of kick. This fit the bill nicely. I used a store-brand queso white cheese melt bar instead of Velveeta, and added a can of drained English peas. Enjoyed by all my "peeps"!"
"Easy to make and very good."
"pretty quick and super yummy! Baked chicken breasts and seasoned with mccormicks grill mates garlic and onion medley. seasoned with cracked black pepper and the garlic onion medley. usually have all ingredients on hand. thanks!! kids loved!!"
