DIRECTIONS

  • First, place the chicken breasts in a pot with enough water to cover them.
  • Boil the chicken until completely cooked.
  • Remove from heat, pour chicken stock into a bowl and set aside for later.
  • Set chicken breasts aside to cool and chop the vegetables.
  • By the time you're finished chopping, the chicken should be cool enough to pull apart.
  • Separate it all into small pieces and set aside for later.
  • Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the celery and onion and sauté until onions are clear.
  • Then, add the soup and diced tomatoes, and mix together.
  • Start with 1 cup of the chicken stock, and slowly add it to the mixture until the sauce is liquified.
  • Let that simmer for around 15 minutes.
  • Then add the 1/2 pound of cubed Velveeta.
  • Let that dissolve into the mixture, and then add your chicken pieces.
  • You might have some left over, depending on how meaty you prefer your sauce.
  • Cover the saucepan and let the mixture simmer over low heat for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Put your water on to boil for the spaghetti, and add the 1/2 lb spaghetti when the water comes to a rolling boil.
  • Some people like their pasta al dente, but I wouldn't recommend it for this dish, because you combine the sauce with the pasta once the spaghettini is drained.
  • Drain your spaghetti, and add the sauce to the pasta.
  • Mix thoroughly and serve immediately.
  • The sauce is very versatile and can be used on any sort of pasta.
  • A friend of mine loved it with penne rigate, and another one even preferred it over orzo pasta or as a sort of risotto.
