We all need some comfort food once in a while—or maybe more than once in a while.

Today’s dish certainly qualifies. I call it comfort chicken spaghetti. My sister gave me the recipe after she saw it on Facebook, and I tweaked it to fit my family’s taste.

My friends also request this when we have potluck dinners, so this is well-tested and approved. I literally have not had any complaints about it.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1 lb Velveeta cheese

  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes (regular or hot)
1 lb spaghetti pasta

  • 1 stick of butter
1 can undiluted cream chicken soup

  • 1 can undiluted cream mushroom soup

  • 1 medium chopped onion

  • 1 chopped bell pepper (red or green)

  • Salt and pepper

To found out how to mix all these ingredients to perfect, check this week’s quick, 4-minute episode of the My Foodie Recipe podcast. But before you even hear it, I’ll just tell you: This recipe is simple, easy and cheesy delicious—which is why it always goes fast in my family!

I should note I do certain tweaks to the recipe at times, such as brown the chicken chunks in a skillet for more flavor and boil the noodles in chicken stock and a tablespoon of chicken base.

I usually garnish this with freshly grated parmesan cheese and serve with a salad and hot garlic bread. Enjoy!
