Having a casserole dish full of this tasty recipe is one of my favorite meals, ever. I love to top it with cheese and bake and then let the flavors take over and do all the work.

Freezer Friendly Chicken Spaghetti Recipe

This recipe is really, really simple. The main things to remember is that you’re going to add the chicken, cook the spaghetti, and pop in the oven. You’re going to want to bake for about 45 minutes and you can cook covered with foil at the end if the cheese starts to get too brown on top for your liking.

This recipe makes a ton of food and it’s more than enough to feed a family. My boys love to eat and this is one of those comfort meals that have them eating a couple of helpings because it’s just that delicious and tasty.

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole Recipe

Yield: 6-8
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Creamy mushroom sauce over cheesy chicken and noodles makes a comforting dinner recipe that is also freezer friendly!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound spaghetti noodles
  • Two (10 and 3/4-ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (14 oz can) chicken broth
  • 2–3 chicken breasts, fully cooked and chopped or shredded (roughly 3 cups)
  • 1/2 cup finely diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 1 small or medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prep a 9×13 inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
  3. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions, until al dente (slightly undercooked). When the pasta is done, drain it well.
  4. While spaghetti is cooking, saute the bell peppers, garlic, & onions in a tablespoon of olive oil until the onions become translucent (about 5 minutes.)
  5. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cooked noodles, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, chicken, sauteed veggies, seasoned salt, cayenne, and 1 1/2 cups of the cheese.
  6. Sprinkle it all with salt and pepper, to your preference.
  7. Spoon the mixture in the casserole dish and top with the remaining 1 cup of cheese. 
  8. Bake until bubbly around the edges, about 40-45 minutes. (If the cheese on top starts to get too dark, cover with foil.)

Notes

Freeze For Later: Follow steps 1-7 (do not bake). Cover the casserole dish with a few layers of plastic wrap and foil. Squeeze out any excess air and freeze.

Prepare From Frozen: Thaw overnight in your refrigerator. Then, follow step 8 - check it before turning your oven off! If the center was still slightly frozen, you may need to add 10-20 minutes to your cooking time. Make sure to cover the edges if they start browning.

This recipe looks amazing, I'm adding it to my list of recipes to try this year. I'm really getting into meal planning and I just love meals that I can freeze for later for those days when things just get a bit too crazy. My kids and I just love pasta meals so I am sure that this will be a massive hit with my family. Thank you for giving the recipe along with instructions for freezing! I'm just wondering about adding mushrooms into this dish? I am such a fan of mushrooms and add them into everything I can!

You can certainly add mushrooms, but I would add them right before cooking as sometimes the freezer can make mushrooms rubbery.
