Earlier this week I shared one of our favorites- Sweet and Sour Chicken. Today’s recipe is a favorite too. It’s (again) so simple because you can use whatever you have on hand and add to it what you want. It’s a base for any main dish. And it’s the perfect dish to make after Thanksgiving with all that leftover turkey. I’ve had this recipe since I was in college- it was one of my favorites my Mom made for us growing up.
In the recipe I mention that I rarely use actual turkey. Thanksgiving leftovers give me a great excuse to use turkey, but normally I just use chicken. I rarely use “tetrazzini” noodles… so really, the name could change depending on what you have. I normally would call it Chicken Spaghetti because I use chicken and spaghetti noodles a ton.
This one is pretty fool proof. It’s a basic roux with a few things added in. But it’s creamy and cheesy and delicious. In other words, it probably won’t top the charts as being the healthiest…
