I love chicken tetrazzini. I just guessed how it was made and it turned out great. Even my picky fiance loved it!

Delicious...I omitted celery & used low-fat soup & fat-free sour cream & it did well...except the chicken was too tough. Next time I'll shorten the cooking time and/or pound the breasts flat. Read More

Easy to prepare but no wow definitely needs something. May be a hit with kids I don't have any at home anymore. Read More

I made this recipe for my picky husband who only eats chicken and wants me to find a million different ways to make it. He loved it. I omitted the vegetables (he doesn't like them) and I pounded the chicken thinner and seasoned it with a tiny bit of garlic powder. I also added red pepper and placed it on top of the chicken. I poured almost all of the soup mixture over the pasta before I placed the chicken on top so the noodles wouldn't get dry spots in them. Then I placed the chicken and peppers on top and poured the rest of the soup over it. It was delicious. He now regularly requests it. Read More

I made this in a pan on the stove. While the spaghetti was boiling I also boiled the chicken (in separate pans). Used 1/2 can Campbells beef consumme instead of chicken broth 1 whole can cream of mushroom soup 8 ozs lite sour cream (we like our pasta kind of soupy). Topped with 3 cheese dry bread crumbs. Very yummy! Read More

I cut the chicken in bite size pieces. I omitted the onions and celery (don't like). Used onion powder and celery salt. I added mozzarella cheese to the liquid mixture. And I added garlic powder and some parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs. My hubby and his buddies loved it. I'll make this again. Read More

I followed the recipe pretty closely except I added about 1 tablespoon of minced onion to the sauce. I used fat free & reduced sodium where I could. I had leftover roasted chicken so I used that instead of uncooked pieces. I had about 1/4 cup of Parmesan that needed using too so I added that to the sauce. I also used only 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup white wine (I know tetrazzini usually has shery but all I had was chardonnay lol).... Ended up mixing it all together instead of just pouring it on top. Pretty good and fairly easy... always a winning combo in my eyes. Read More

Made this pretty much as written except omitted the celery. Based on the feedback about seasonings I also added some celery salt Bell s poultry seasoning fresh garlic along with fresh cracked pepper. I d definitely make again except there was a lot of sauce so I will probably coat the spaghetti with soup me and then pour the rest over. Read More

Added carrots and a bit of mozzarella under the bread crumbs. My husband likes the crust browned so added a few minutes under the broiler. This was a fun easy dish! Read More
