Chicken Tetrazzzzzzini!

When you read the title, imagine me saying it like this.

This recipe came courtesy of a coworker who knows good food (I tweaked only slightly). You are going to love it.


  • 1 - 1.5 lbs chicken breast

  • 2/3 a large block of velveeta

  • 1 can rotel (you’ll see in the pic I didn’t use rotel, but I was using queso that had rotel in it, so ha)

  • 1 can cream of mushroom

  • 1 can cream of chicken

  • 1 package of your favorite pasta

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 zucchini, sliced (so I can tell myself it’s healthy)

  • olive oil & tasty seasonings (like garlic powder, red pepper flakes - whatever you like)

NOTE: Honestly, one of the things I love most about this dish, is that you can kind of substitute ingredients as they are available to you. For example, one time I had a whole block of a smoky cheddar, so I used that instead of velveeta, then added bell peppers and celery instead of zucchini. Just make it work with what you like and whatever’s on hand!

Cut the chicken into cubes and sauté with some olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Once the chicken is mostly cooked, add the onion and more olive oil if necessary.

While this is going on, go ahead and cook your package of pasta according to the directions. It’ll be joining this party shortly.
