Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti Recipe

When I think of spaghetti I always think of the Italian recipes with the tomato sauce. It is like my son pointed out;  spaghetti is just the name of the pasta. For something different I decided on this Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti Recipe. It’s a simple recipe, but it is time consuming because you have to precook the chicken. I guess in a way it kind of reminds me of a glorified macaroni and cheese dish. Cooking the spaghetti in the chicken broth left over from the chicken I think gives this recipe a little added extra, creating a rich and delicious flavor that melts in your mouth.  If you like pasta dishes- you will love this. Enjoy
