There are many ways to cook chicken spaghetti. In fact, I change it up often. That way it never gets old or boring. I love chicken spaghetti for a #sundaysupper meal. I can take my time on Sunday's and let the chicken cook in the Crock-pot on low. This makes the perfect shredded tender chicken for your casserole.
In the Crock-pot, I added 3 large chicken breast, 1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup, 1 cup of Organic Chicken stock, the 1/2 cup of chopped white onion and 1/2 of the can of Hunts stewed tomatoes. I added the other 1/2 later. Simmer in Crock-pot on low until chicken is tender. About 4 hours. Go to a movie and lunch and it will be ready when you get back.
On Stove top - In a medium-large sauce pan, add your water and I used the infused extra virgin oilive oil. This is delicious and makes your noodles light and tasty. Bring to a boil and cook your spaghetti until tender and floats to top.
Drain your spaghetti and add drain spaghetti into your Crock-pot. Stir in and let simmer about 30 minutes. Then, I transferred to a baking dish. I drained the mixture using a colander so that the noodles retained some juice but not soaking wet.
Once in baking dish, add in the rest of your stewed tomatoes, Italian seasoning & red pepper. Top with the small pkg of mild cheddar cheese and bake at 350 Degrees for approx 12-15 minutes.
Serve with crackers, bread, toast or whatever you like. It is a hearty chicken spaghetti and perfect for a Sunday Supper. Enjoy!
Nachos - It's all about the Nachos this Sunday Night. Nachos and Sunday Night Football are my husband's favorite combo.
If you have been following the blog and my TV Segments on THV11 The Vine Morning Show, you are aware of the fact that I love to cut out my cheese using cookie cutters. From pumpkins, reindeer, ghosts, trees, and more, they make your charcuterie boards, or as I call them, your grazing boards, stand out! The little shapes really stood on on my extra long ultimate table runner. Be sure and check out this fancy all edible table runner and watch the segment.
The left over scraps of cheese from cutting out the shapes are perfect to use for these Ultimate Sunday Night Supper Nachos. I store the cheese scraps in a large zip lock bag until I can use them in other dishes. I also had a variety of chips that I used on the table runner that was left over and stored as well in a zip lock bag. The combination of the regular restaurant style TOSTITOS® Tortilla Chips, The Blue Corn Chips, and the Nacho Cheese flavored chips, resulted in ultimate nachos for sure!
Pre-heat Oven to 350 Degrees
I started out by lining my large sheet pan with a pan liner. Start doing this if you don't already. It sure makes clean up a whole lot easier. Scatter the three chips throughout the pan.
Brown your hamburger meat ( I use extra lean) in a pan with about 1/2 cup chopped white onion. Dash salt, pepper & garlic pepper (I only use Lowry's) to season. Brown and stir over medium heat until the meat isn't pink. I also added a teaspoon of Chili Powder, along with a pinch of cumin to make these ultimate nachos. I like it this way or without the chili powder and cumin. Depending the mood we are in and the taste we are craving for that day.
We love Bush Beans Frijoles Bush does them best. I drain the juice and simmer in my meat mixture. Simmer all together on low/medium for about 10 minutes. Then drain your meat mixture using your colander.
Bring it all together
Next scatter your meat mixture on top of your chips throughout your large cookie sheet. Top your cheese mixture on top. (This cheese mixture was a combination of mild cheddar, medium cheddar, and provolone. It did not disappoint.
Place loaded pan into pre-heated oven at 350 Degrees and bake for approximately 15 minutes until your cheese has melted throughout.
Garnish - Romo tomatoes, Living Lettuce, & Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Slice your Roma tomatoes into small pieces. Top with Lowry's Garlic Pepper & Avocado Oil to get an awesome tomato flavor. Peel off lettuce from your Living Lettuce head to top your nachos. Believe me, once you start using Living Lettuce, you won't go back. This is such a fresh organic lettuce. I also top my nachos with Kraft Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese for an extra cheesy flavor.
You have just made yourself some awesome Ultimate Sheet Pan Nachos. This whole meal can be done in approximately 30 minutes. They are delicious and are a perfect Football game meal.
