This simple but tasty Chicken Spaghetti Casserole is a delicious Southern classic–comfort food at its finest. This slice of the South is great for an easy but filling meal with the family but also a great go-to for your next potluck.
Would it be wrong to call this “soul food”? It certainly is soul food for me. In any event, it is delicious comfort food! Grandmother didn’t do much in the way of fancy cooking (Mother was more the experimenter and culinary explorer), but she did a number of classic Southern recipes very well; chicken spaghetti casserole was one of them. I remember eating this many times when I was little, visiting her home in the quaint Southern town of Hazlehurst, Mississippi, and rare was the occasion when I didn’t ask for seconds. (It is a mother’s job to protect and set down the rules and a grandmother’s job to indulge, am I right?)
I had wandered on to other cooking adventures and lost this recipe for a long time, unfortunately, but thanks to The Pioneer Woman‘s Ree Drummond and The Food Network, I was able to bring it to my dinner table again. Color me very grateful.
