Chicken Tetrazzini – Comfort Food To The Max!
What to do with left over chicken from last night? It would be great to get another meal out of it but there’s only about 2 cups of chicken meat. It’s a chilly, rainy spring day so I want something warm and comforting. A CASSEROLE….it’s the perfect food for a dreary day like this. After scanning the fridge and the cupboards, I have a plan and that plan is Chicken Tetrazzini. Easy to make and really tasty, it will fill the Bill (meaning my dear hubby, Bill) and have some left to freeze for another meal. This recipe works well with leftover turkey so I always make it after Thanksgiving to use up the copious amounts of turkey left from the holiday.Print

My Mam was the best cook and hee receipt was close to all these. We would bake the chicken then make a roué but we used canned milk then added a hunch of velvet a cheese and a can of mushroom soup .. We all loved the taste!
