Chicken Spaghetti

Chicken Spaghetti
from my cousin, Jennifer

2 cups cooked & cubed chicken
1 box (16 oz) cooked spaghetti
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can diced Rotel
1 can chicken broth (I use Swanson's since it's a little bigger)
Shredded Cheddar (I use a finely shredded mix Kraft makes)
Shredded Parmesan

Mix soups, Rotel, and chicken broth. Combine with chicken and noodles. Pour into a 9 x 13 ungreased pan. Cover with shredded cheddar cheese (recipe calls for 8 oz but I use at least 2 cups) and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese (I leave this off if I don't have it).

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly around edges. (The recipe calls for 40-60 minutes, but mine only takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on whether I'm using freshly cooked and cut up chicken that's already warm or some I've thawed from the freezer that's cold. I think the 40-60 minutes might be when you've made it ahead and frozen it.)

The Rotel gives it a different flavor so it doesn't taste all "chicken-y."

The pictures came out dark and poorly focused. I have trouble indoors. Sorry!

I make one that's almost the same. It's so good and freezes well!

I have made one very similar to this, and then also Pioneer Woman's version found here: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/06/chicken_spaghet/

My kids liked both, but preferred the PW version (as do I).

Also, I almost always double the amount of cheese!

This is a little different from my recipe but still looks tasty.
