Dinner's on the table in no time flat with this easy, speedy Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole. This is a perfect busy-night meal.

What You'll Need

  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 (20-ounce) package frozen cooked diced chicken breast, thawed (see Note)

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine pasta, 1 cup cheese, sauce, and chicken in a large bowl; spoon into a lightly greased 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
     
  3. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
     

Notes

We use already cooked and diced chicken breast in this recipe to save even more time in the kitchen. But if you have chicken breasts already on hand, that's great, too. You'll need 3 cups of chopped cooked chicken.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Going to make this week for sure, salad and garlic bread and call it supper.

I think some of the ideas are great, so CHILL everyone and make it the way you want!

I think it sounds great. I'd us the Dreamfield pasta.a sauce with no sugar and use a non-fat cheese.That makes it a little easier on a diabetic diet.

EXACTLY!!! That is precisely what I do!! I too am a diabetic (5 shots of insulin per day) and with ALL the pasta recipes on this website I use Dreamfields pasta...It tastes GREAT!

If everyone is going to change the recipe it is easier not to make it. find something else to make!!!

I agree with you--do these people really think they can cook better then "Mr Food"--forget it--how many cookbooks and TV shows have they had?

why are you judging???

sub out spaghetti sauce for alfredo & mozzarella & parmesan for the cheddar & you have a chicken alfredo casserole

Your idea sounds delicious too. I'll have to try it both ways.

I'm so confused.....to many choices....LOL, they both sound soo good, I'm going to try them both realy soon

I would like this but I am a Diabetic what wouls I have to change in the recipt.

I use Splenda for baking and if there is oil in the recipe, try using plain unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil.

IN THIS CASE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING. JUST ONLY EAT ONE SERVING. AND AS A DIABETIC MYSELF IF IT DOES NOT INCLUDE SUGAR YOU DO NOT REALLY HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE RECIPE. BUT IF YOU NEED THE REDUCE YOUR FAT IN TAKE CHANGE TO A BETTER OIL OR AS BEN SAID YOU CAN ADD APPLESAUCE OR BANANA AS DR. OZ AS SAID WE CAN SUB FOR OIL. RUBY

In place of regular pasta, I have been using DREAMFIELD'S pasta. It does not raise your blood sugar as much as other pastas. If you can't find DREAMFIELD'S, try using whole wheat pasta. It is better for you. The protein from the chicken will also help slow down a rise in your blood sugar.

BJSaint ... I too am diabetic. The only place I would check for sugar content would be in the Spaghetti sauce ... just read the labels and select one with the least amount of sugar. To reduce the "fat" use a low fat cheese like Mozzerella (forgive my spelling) in place of the cheddar, and use a "multi- (whole) grain pasta. It just means shopping a little differently ... you still have the EASY recipe.
