Some nights, a home cooked meal is just what’s needed to fix a long day. We love a variety of recipes, but I love getting back to my southern roots. Good old fashion, southern cooking always fills the belly and comforts the heart. This Southern Chicken Spaghetti Recipe hits the spot!
When I was a kid, my mom was one of my lunch ladies. Some kids might not have like this, but I loved it! Back then, they made every thing from scratch and man did it taste good! My mom learned a lot of new recipes and even at six, so did I! Most every morning, I was at school an hour early, just hanging out in the school kitchen. Maybe that’s why I love food so much! Well anyways, the one recipe that I took with me was some good old southern creamy chicken spaghetti! It is such a simple recipe, but man does it pack some flavor!
