Chicken Tetrazzini


It was my first time making this recipe. I have never even tried it before but I knew I would love it based on the ingredients. It was super easy to prepare and I will definitely make this for a dinner party next time. What I love about the sauce is that it is versatile. I can substitute the chicken for shrimp and add asparagus in place of mushrooms too.

Best part, my daughter tried it and loved it; ate 2 platefuls!
