Chicken Tetrazzini is one of those dishes that makes use of leftover chicken or turkey. This traditional casserole is a crowd pleaser.
This week Sunday Supper turns 2 . I am honored to say that I am a member of the Sunday Supper Movement. I met Isabel, the founder, last year. I can say that I was very impressed by her positive energy and her love for food, family and friends.
The tradition of the family dinner should be lives in my family. I enjoy sharing food with good company.
Let’s talk about our recipe! Chicken tetrazzini is a cozy casserole for sure and can be very rich with -butter, cream and pasta.
I have lightened this classic dish by using less butter, 2% milk instead of cream and light cream cheese. Your family will enjoy this healthy chicken tetrazzini casserole.
This creamy casserole is hearty and delicious.
- 10 ounce uncooked linguine
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup all-purpose flour
- 2½ cups unsalted chicken stock
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 2.5 ounces grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided
- 1 ounce ⅓-less-fat cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons olive oi, divided
- 2 (8-ounce) packages sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon dry thyme
- ½ cup white wine
- 3 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
- 1 cup frozen green peas
- Cooking spray
- 1½ ounces French bread baguette, torn into pieces
- Preheat oven to 375°.
- Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly with a whisk. Gradually add stock and milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, cream cheese, salt, and pepper.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add mushrooms; sauté 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add onion, garlic, and thyme; sauté 3 minutes. Add wine; cook 1 minute. Combine milk mixture, mushroom mixture, pasta, chicken, and peas; toss to combine. Spoon the pasta mixture into a 13 x 9-inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray.
- Place bread in a food processor; drizzle with 1 Tablespoon oil. Process until coarse crumbs form. Combine breadcrumbs and remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano; sprinkle evenly over pasta. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
