Chicken Tetrazzini

Potlucks, the Holidays, and comfort food all go hand in hand.  There is nothing better counter full of warm comforting family favorites and  a gathering of friends and/or family!  Wouldn’t you agree?!
Many thanks to ADA Mideast for sponsoring this post!

IMG_1028Sigh….there ain’t nuttin like a plate of warm creamy cheesy Chicken Tetrazzini.  Scuze my grammar.  This dish is pure comfort food, and the perfect casserole to bring to that Holiday potluck you’ve been invited to!


chickentetrazziniThe first time I sank my teeth into this scrumptious recipe was years ago at a Christmas Potluck office party.  I loved those people, for many reasons!  One being they had some amazing recipe boxes, and I did not mind being on the receiving end of any and all of the delicious food that was shared at office potlucks.  At the time I was single living on my own and eating cold baked beans out of the can with tortilla chips for dinner.  (I know…seriously, who was that girl?)   So when there was an office potluck and a chance for me to not only get some good eats at work but bring some leftovers home I was all about it!


RibbetCTOver the years I have modified the recipe a bit, it’s still is in line with what one would think of as tetrazzini.  Thank you Debbie for sharing this scrumptious recipe with me nineteensome-odd years ago.   The only thing that bothers me about this recipe is its lack of color, but now that I think of it most foods that are considered “comfort food” (to me at least) are colorless.  What’s that all about? Homemade Mac-n-Cheese, fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, stuffing, apple pie, bacon, butter (oh whoops I guess that’s not a food….ok then buttered toast) all are colorless or monotone, but scrumptious none the less and not to be live without!! Amen? Amen!  Here’s to monotone food.  I think I’m going to start a new Pinterest board Monotone Food, er maybe not.

What would you say your  "comfort" food is?

Feeding America

Dairy farmers are committed to the health and wellness of Americans, with an emphasis on child health, which includes addressing hunger and helping ensure every American has access to nutrient-rich foods, such as low-fat and fat-free milk and milk products. Join America’s dairy farmers making sure everyone can enjoy a healthy meal this holiday season!

Dairy foods provide nine essential nutrients that are important for improving overall health, and research shows consuming dairy foods is linked to improved bone health, especially in children and adolescents.

However, finding and distributing a consistent supply of milk and milk products is a challenge for America’s hunger relief system.  Of the pounds of food available in food banks, only 5.3 percent is dairy.

Today, more than 50 million people in America are food insecure. Of these, nearly 17 million (one in five) are children. These children have an increased risk of health and development issues, including obesity and poor academic performance.

 Thank you so much for your support in helping Feeding America!

XO, Sheila
