Chicken Spaghetti
I find this recipe very helpful for “expected” guests as
it may be prepared in advance and is as good, if not better,
when “warmed over.”
4 or 5 pound hen
1 bay leaf
4 pieces celery
3 clove garlic
Salt and pepper
1 onion, large
1 can pimiento, 4 ounces
1 bell pepper, large
2 boxes spagetti
2 cans mushroom soup
Bod chicken with bay leaf, celery, garlic, salt and pepper until
tender. Cut chicken in small pieces. Cook chicken with onion, pimientos
and bell pepper in small amount of shortening. Do not brown. Boil the
spagetti in the chicken stock, adding more water if needed. Drain
spagetti and add to other ingredients with the mushroom soup. One
can of mushroom soup may be sufficient, according to taste.
If “warmed-over” an additional can of mushroom soup is needed.
Add Worcestershire sauce to taste and serve with Parmesan cheese.
The chicken spagetti can be served with a sweet-pickle coleslaw
and hot rolls.

grees, 30 minutes. Makes two dozen.
