Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe

This Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe takes quite a bit of time to put it together. There’s nothing hard about the recipe, but to connect it all together does take some work. I was kind of pinched for time again, but if figured if I cooked the chicken before I left the house it could be cooling well I did what I had to do in town. Things still got a little out of hand and I had supper on the table a little later than I planned.

The flavors in this recipe blend really well. If you don’t like using alcohol in your recipes, I think if you increased the chicken broth by 1/4 cup that would work in place of the Sherry. I prepared the recipe as written and if I make this recipe again I would change very little. It was excellent.

If you’ve never made Chicken Tetrazzini before give this recipe a try it’s excellent. Enjoy
