{Ch}argers & {Ch}icken Spaghetti

The Chargers are playing tonight and I wanted something casserole{ish} baking in the oven as we watched the game…

this was PERFECT:

Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Spaghetti

Um, yum!


I cheated and used my friend Mr. Rotisserie. And by doing this, I goofed and didn’t see that I needed to reserve 2 cups chicken broth {from the fryer chicken that I was supposed to boil MYSELF}, so as I am nearing the end of the prep I see that it’s time to add the chicken broth….oops! Didn’t have any in the pantry, so I just used 1 cup whole milk instead. I was afraid to use 2 cups as I thought it would be too soupy. It was perfect!

I also am not a fan {not even a little bit} of green bell peppers so I substituted a red pepper and used a whole wheat pasta instead. And the pimentos….left those little guys out. Oh, and I drizzled a little Sriracha on my portion, too.

I wanted to share this recipe with you ASAP because it really is delish and so comforting.

{Like we need another comforting meal after our Thanksgiving Day feasts!}

I think this will become a regular. It makes TONS which is fine because it’s that good.

And the Chargers weren’t too bad this week, either!


Here’s to a week of recuperating and ringing in the holidays!
