Chicken Tetrazzini

It was so cold out yesterday, I wanted to cook, but had no desire to get in a car and drive to the store, so I thought I would find what I had in the house and make something. Although unusual for me, I decided on one of my grocery days to pick up a can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup, and this was a great time to use it…so I got on the internet and started searching. I wanted a recipe that was simple but flavorful, and found very little…so, I mixed several recipes together and went to town!

Chicken Tetrazzini

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare:

8 oz. package spaghetti or linguini

…according to the package directions in a saucepan. Add:

1 c. frozen peas or edamame

… during the last 2 minutes of the cooking time. Drain the linguine and peas/edamame well in a colander. In a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, add:
2 T. oil

2 chicken breasts
Cook until it's well browned; only flipping once, if possible. Remove chicken, cool. Shred the chicken.
In the skillet just used to cook the chicken, lower the heat to medium-low or medium, depending on your stove. Heat:

2 T. butter

Once butter is melted, add:
1 medium onion, diced

Cook the onion until it's well caramelized, stirring often. Add:
1 T. garlic, chopped

Sauté the garlic for a few minutes, just until softened. Stir in:

1 can Campbell's condensed cream of mushroom soup
½ c. chicken broth
½ c. grated parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix well, until the cheese is melted and everything is combined. Add chicken and pasta mixture. Mix until combined. Add:

½ c. flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped

Mix until well combined. Transfer everything into a casserole dish. Top with:
¼ c. grated parmesan cheese
¼ c. breadcrumbs

Put in oven for 20-30 minutes on the top rack. Take out after the top is browned.
