Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe

Chicken Tetrazzini

Sargento is hosting a Chopped At Home contest and I was challenged to create a dish using boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a red bell pepper, Greek yogurt and Sargento® Chef Blends™ Shredded 6 Cheese Italian. All sorts of recipes came to mind, but I finally settled on a Chicken Tetrazzini recipe because I love making skillet meals. This easy dinner recipe only takes 30 minutes!

Chicken Tetrazzini Ingredients

The ingredients for the Chicken Tetrazzini include Sargento® Chef Blends™ Shredded 6 Cheese Italian, chicken broth, heavy cream, butter, boneless, skinless chicken breasts, red bell peppers, Greek yogurt, minced onion and spaghetti.

Chicken and Peppers

Cook the spaghetti, drain and toss with a tablespoon of olive oil. While the spaghetti is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet. (I used a cast iron skillet that I could also put in the oven.) Add the onion, diced red bell pepper and cubed chicken breasts and cook for about 4 minutes over medium high heat, stirring often until the chicken is lightly browned. Remove from the pan and set aside.

White Sauce For Pasta

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour, salt and pepper. Cook for 30 second to 60 seconds. Whisk in chicken broth, Greek yogurt and heavy cream until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the shredded cheese.

Sargento 6 Cheese Italian

Stir in the spaghetti, chicken and peppers. If you are not using an oven-proof skillet, transfer the tetrazzini to a large baking dish or 9×13 inch pan. Top with 1 cup of shredded cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and lightly toasted. This Chicken Tetrazzini recipe was delicious and it only took about 30 minutes to make!
