“The secret to great Chicken Spaghetti is the way you prepare the noodles. You cook them in chicken broth and it adds a ton a flavor to the dish! (This is a recipe that my mom shared with me that she got while she was at Baylor) This is great quick dish that you can put together in about 20 to 30 min, serve with a salad and your meal is compete. I take this to friends a lot who have just had a baby or are sick.”
