    I used coconut milk instead of cream and didn’t use cheese. It was a bit dry so i added some salsa and it was perfect then!!!!!!

    This was awesome! I used pepper jack cheese, cheddar & Parmesan. Took about 1.5 hours to make with raw chicken

    It was okay, the sharp cheddar wasn’t for me personally, but over all it was pretty decent.

    Great. Took longer than 10 minutes to prep. The sauce took nearly 20 minutes. Needed about 90 minutes from start to finish. I used leftover turkey instead of chicken.

    Good, but I would recommend swapping the diced tomatoes for Rotel to give it a little more flavor and kick.

    It is SUPER tasty but it took a while to prepare the ingredients and the directions were a little confusing, overall it was really good. I supplemented cream for evaporated milk and the green peppers for red peppers

    amazing! I had to substitute some ingredients like the light cream for evaporated milk and the dried tomatoes for fresh tomatoes but it overall came out delicious!

    Fabulous! I have made this several times for myself, my daughter’s family and a neighbor! Best recipe EVER! My sister has made several times as well and it always has rave reviews! A little time consuming but if you cook the spaghetti first (I break in half and always double the recipe... freezes great!) and then while spaghetti is draining, use the same big pot for the rest of the recipe, add the pasta and one pot to clean!!! I do usually cook the chicken the day before in the instant pot and chop the vegetables! That makes it less overwhelming when you put it all together!
    I turned out prefect, it had the right on taste and I loved it

    Very good and easy to make. I added more onion, peppers, spices, and chicken than the recipe called for. I have a teenager who is a very picky eater. He loved it and asked if I would make it again.

    Great. After adding half of the spaghetti to the pan, I added some fresh mozzarella then layered the rest of the spaghetti and topped with the cheddar. Will make this again.

    Awesome!!!! This is now a favorite in my house, in the process of making my third batch. I did use lactose free milk instead of the light cream and used diced tomatoes with basil garlic and oregano.

    Best chicken spaghetti recipe I’ve ever tried!! By far!! Definitely saving this one to make again!

    This is absolutely amazing! Not the standard chicken spaghetti I’m used to in Texas. Better! I would add more bell pepper next time, but that’s just a taste thing. Also, if I’m feeding more of a crowd, probably double the chicken just to up the substance. Just minor alterations. Still an amazing recipe as is.

    My family and I really enjoyed it. Although I did make a lot of changes. I used red bell pepper instead of green, added extra garlic, I didn’t have cream so I used milk and extra butter, I added chopped zucchini when I added the flour, and I used white wine instead of chicken broth. I saw someone say they used pepper jack instead of cheddar and plan to try that next time! I also plan to use a different type of noodle, it was hard to mix everything evenly with the spaghetti. I will also say used quite a few dishes. Nbd, but just a comment.

    The food turned out good but thats because I can figure things that are unclear out. Some of the ingredients i didnt see in instructions in the recipe on how to use. like the Flour and a couple other ingredients i never ended up using.
