Chicken Tetrazzini

I often make some type of casserole or soup for dinner on Sunday. Last Sunday was no exception. Making soups or casseroles on a Sunday means less cooking during the week. At my house, a soup or casserole and provide up to three days of dinners, provided we don’t eat any of the left overs for lunch.

Last Sunday I decided to try another recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook: Chicken Tetrazzini.

This simple recipe has a total combine prep and bake time of about 35-45 minutes. If you can prep it quickly, you should be able to complete the recipe in about 30 minutes. Using leftover chicken or a rotisserie chicken eliminates the need to cook any chicken, which is a huge time saver. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
