Healthy Living! Allow our Made-Over Chicken Tetrazzini to hit a high note with its savory sauce. This better-for-you chicken tetrazzini is great for weeknight entree.
What You Need
1/2 lb. spaghetti, uncooked
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast s, cut into bite-size pieces
1 red pepper, chopped
2 cups sliced fresh mushroom s
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, cubed
1/4 cup flour
1 can (14.5 oz.) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Cook spaghetti in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, cook chicken and vegetables in large nonstick skillet 5 min. or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
3 – Bring Neufchatel, flour and broth to boil in same skillet, whisking constantly; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min., stirring frequently.
4 – Drain spaghetti; return to saucepan. Add Neufchatel sauce, chicken mixture and 2 Tbsp. Parmesan; mix well. Spoon into 2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; cover.
5 – Bake 25 min. Top with mozzarella and remaining Parmesan; bake, uncovered, 2 min. or until mozzarella is melted.
Tip 1: Makeover – How We Did It: Save 7g of fat, including 4 g sat fat, per serving when compared to a traditional tetrazzini by preparing this delicious version with boneless skinless chicken breasts, PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese, fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth and KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. And as a bonus, these changes will result in a savings of 40 calories per serving.
Tip 2: Variation – Substitute 1-1/2 cups chopped leftover cooked turkey for the chicken, adding it to the cooked spaghetti along with the vegetables.
Tip 3: Cooking Know-How 0 If you break the spaghetti in half before cooking, it makes serving the dish easier.
