Chicken Tetrazzini

chicken tetrazzini

A simple but hearty main dish. For a recipe for homemade chicken stock, see Rich Chicken Stock at

Cook the pasta until nearly done before combining with the chicken mixture. Be sure to stir to well combine.

If you want a creamier sauce, increase the amount of cornstarch, and add extra cheese.


3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, shredded
3 canned artichoke hearts, chopped about 1/2 cup (optional)
1/4 cup green peas, frozen
1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups chicken stock or canned chicken broth
8 oz spaghetti, broken and cooked al denté
1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated (more if desired)
