Chicken Spaghetti

I so love the Pioneer Woman! See her fun picture recipe here or just follow below.

2 cups cooked chicken
2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely diced green pepper
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1-4 oz jar diced pimentos, drained (I didn't have, but sure it would be good)
3 cups dry spaghetti, broken into two" pieces (cooked in broth from boiled fryer, or water with chicken bullion...)
2 cups chicken broth (from boiled chicken or can, like I did)
1 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/8 to 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (or none, zero, niltch for DH who hates spicy anything!)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 additional cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

I also added some of my freshly canned tomatoes, drained, and some garlic. Yum!

Cook 1 cut up fryer or chicken of preference and pick out the meat to make two cups. Cook spaghetti in same chicken broth until al dente. Do not overcook. When spaghetti is cooked, combine with remaining ingredients except additional cup sharp cheddar.

Place mixture in casserole pan and top with remaining sharp cheddar. Cover and freeze up to 6 months, cover and refrigerate up to two days, or bake immediately: 350 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly. (If the cheese on top starts to get too cooked, cover with foil.) Yum!
