Chicken/Turkey Tetrazzini

Isn't it great to find a new recipe that the whole family likes? This week, while going through my cookbooks trying to find some dinner ideas, I came across a chicken tetrazzini recipe. I have never tried tetrazzini before, but it sounded really good and not too fussy. My family can be pretty picky, so I'm always a little hessitant to try something new. This recipe came from a Costco cookbook, but I did make some changes to it. It was very simple and definitely a keeper.


1/4 cup salted butter(1/2 stick)
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1/4 cup flour
1 teas. salt
1/4 teas. pepper
2 cups chicken broth(or 14oz can)
1 cup half and half
3 Tabl. Sherry
2 cups of cooked, shredded or cubed chicken or Turkey
14oz of cooked penne pasta
4 cups shredded cheddar and monterrey jack cheese(mixed, not each)
1/2 cup bread crumbs

Melt the butter in a pan. Saute garlic in butter 'till tender. Add salt and pepper. Add flour and stir until smooth. Pour in broth, then half and half, while stirring. Bring to a boil, then simmer and stir until sauce thickens, approx. 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add sherry then add 3 cups of cheese and stir until melted. Add the chicken and the pasta and stir. Pour into a greased 9X13 pan. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bread crumbs. Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes, or until it is hot and bubbly. Pin It
