This isn't your mother's chicken spaghetti! It has an Italian flavor with a hint of tequila sauce. This is an easy recipe that keeps well. Store it in sealable bags or freeze it for later. Kids love it.

Pretty good. I used a jar of Ragu instead of tomatoes because I didn't have any available. I'd make it again.:) Read More

Excellent taste. I suggest you allow the tomato and tequila sauce simmer for more than 5 minutes. The tequila was quite intense at 5 mins make it 10 minutes. Read More

This recipe is fantastic!! I served it with rotini pasta because that is my grandson's favorite. He is 4 and always asks me to make the "curly noodle" spaghetti with the "sugar" (parmesan cheese) on top. I made it for family and they all wanted seconds even thirds. The seasonng is flavorful and satisfying. This recipe will always be a hit with us. Read More

My daughter and I tried this recipe. We did not use any salt due to not cooking with salt for health reasons. I am not sure if that would have made a difference but the flavors didn't seem to mix well with one another and I would not make this again. Read More
