Creamy, Cheesy Chicken tossed in Spaghetti noodles? Yes Please!

This dish is bursting with flavor! I’d say it takes the cake when compared to traditional spaghetti. So its sure to become a staple recipe once your family tries this! I made a homemade cheese sauce which was the perfect blend of cheeses and creaminess but you could also use velveeta and it’ll turn out just as tasty! Nothing tops this dish off like fresh tomatoes, parsley and some shredded cheese! Those toppings just add an extra oomph! However if tomatoes aren’t your thing you can definitely leave those out! Pair it with some garlic bread or a nice side salad and glass of wine and this dish is a HIT!
