    1 hr


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  3. Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir flour into the margarine until the flour is completely moistened. Gradually stream milk into the saucepan while whisking with the flour mixture until the milk is incorporated into a smooth mixture.
  4. Stir processed cheese food into the milk mixture in small amounts, letting each addition melt smoothly into the liquid before adding the next; add chicken, chicken broth, mushrooms, salt, and cayenne pepper. Stir mixture, add cooked spaghetti, and toss to coat. Divide the chicken spaghetti between 2 baking dishes.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until the sauce is thick and the edges begin to brown, about 30 minutes.

I made this but, I tweaked it a little. I used everything she said (minus the Salt due to the cheese already having it) plus i added a big can of Cream of Mushroom, a Can of Ro*tel Tomato, and I cheated w/ Fajita Chicken. Yes I had to basically double everything but I ended up making 2 9x13 Glass Casserole Dishes and it was still gone the next day. Everyone loved it and said it was the best Chicken Spaghetti they had. Also I used the Mexican Style Velveeta Cheese too. Enjoy is all I can say.

Honestly, I wasn't convinced that the Velveeta cheese on its own would work, but this turned out to be pure creamy, cheesy, mellow goodness. The only liberty I took with the recipe was adding some buttered fresh bread crumbs as a topping, and I'd do that again. Thanks S, you made a Velveeta believer out of me with this recipe...enjoyed!

Made it last night exactly to directions. Wasn't creamy at all, pretty thick and sticky. Wouldn't make it again.

This made enough chicken spaghetti to feed a small army... and it was incredibly delicious. I baked a topping of Italian-style bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil on top; I also shredded the chicken instead of chopping it. Thank you so much for this recipe!
