Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti

If you love cheese...(Elizabeth this one's for you),

If you love chicken...,


If you love spaghetti...

Then this is the dish for you! Growing up my mom would make this yummy meal and I would look forward to it all day. Yes, to me, it is that good! And the best part is, it's so simple and all in one pot. Here's how you do it:

Gather together-

2-3 lbs boneless chicken breast

1 lb velveeta or american cheese (cubed)

1 lb spaghetti noodles

1 med onion, chopped

1 med Bell pepper, chopped

1 large can sliced mushrooms

1 4 oz jar pimentos,

dicedsalt & pepper to taste

Boil chicken in water(fill to cover chicken) with a handful of chopped onion and a dash of salt and pepper for about an hour. When chicken is done, remove from pot, leaving broth. Add enough water to make approx 3 quarts of broth. Bring to a boil, add onions and bell pepper. Cook for 15 minutes. While that is cooking, cut or tear up chicken into small pieces and return to broth. Continue to boil and add spaghetti. Before spaghetti is completely done, add mushrooms(or olives), pimentos and cheese. Continue cooking until all the cheese is melted and spaghetti is tender.

Then the best part: eat it all gone. This recipe will make a whole pot and feed a large family or give you leftovers for the week..YUM!!

Sorry I don't have any photos of the meal. I guess you will have to endure some of my kids.
