Chicken Spaghetti
Jan 27th, 2009 at 9:06am
 
Ok, before ya'll start on me, I realize I can't spell.  But who remembers this cassarole dish everybodies Mama used to make back in the late 60's early 70's?  It was really good, but I can't for the life of me remember what all was in it.  Might have had cream of mushroom soup, but thats all I can remember.  Does anybody have this recipe?

Hey Turnip, good to hear from you. I do have a recipe for chicken spaghetti. Its so easy.  The secret to the pasta is to cook it in your chicken broth after you have cooked your chicken. Melt a stick of butter, throw in a chopped onion, a chopped green pepper, some garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper. Hang on to your broth because after the veggies have cooked, add one can of mushroom soup and one can of tomato soup. Add pasta and chicken.  After you mix all this up, if its thick, add the reserved broth. Throw in some cheddar and put a little on top. Bake at 350 til bubbly.  Freezes well. Your turn... Wink

Don't you just love cooks that don't give precise amounts but just "eye" the amounts?  Grin  

Ditto my mom use to make it & she had one pan that it fit in, a 4 qt. corning dish.  Seems every thing my mom made, she used a certain dish has her measurement.  Cheesy  Fudge had to be made in the same frying pan & pored onto the right meat platter.  Popcorn could only be made in one sauce pan without a matching lid so the steam could escape! She had one spoon that wasn't a measuring spoon but that she new how much of a spice was needed by were it went on this spoon. Use to like to watch her cook. You'd now what we were having for dinner or dessert by which pans she was using!  Shocked And they call cooking a science.  Cool

Back in the 60's  I remember all the Jr. Women's Club members made this recipe.   Pat Beadles has it.   I was one of the few who didn't and I've wanted it for year.   

Thanks so much for posting it.   I do remember Pat saying, start with a bay leaf.

Bay leaf is always a good start...had a bay leaf bush in my backyard prior to Katrina.  Seemed my red beans and rice just tasted better with a bay leaf I'd grown myself.

All this talk of casseroles gives me an idea. Yeah, yeah I know.. my Cairo Monopoly Game hasn't gotten off the ground yet, but listen to this:

A few years ago I bought a Magnolia Manor Cookbook and before that an Immanuel Lutheran one and there's lots of good Cairo recipes in them. How about having something, say, at the Manor, say, during Riverboat Days, when a lot of people are in town (old, new, former Cairoites) a "Cairo Cookin'" thing?  Bring your favorite recipe--and copies, have samples for tasters, charge a fee which would go to the Manor, and have judging for prizes.

That's a wonderful idea, Deckhand.  May I be a judge?  I have credentials, well experience anyway.  I was a judge for the pie baking contest at the Metropolis Blues & Ques fest about 3 years ago.   Roll Eyes

Speaking of which...why doesn't Cairo have a bar-b-que festival?  It's such an obvious gimme for the town.   Huh

BBQ cookoff is a great idea. I have mentioned this to the Riverboat committee but nobody ever acted on it. Also talked with some Cavalier Club members last summer about organizing it and getting it together for riverboat weekend. Not interested. I know the riverboat committee has their hands full on that first weekend of October and they may even have a little burn out going on, which is why we need to get creative and add to the weekend in Oct. I moved Bark in the Park to the grounds of the Manor last year and we had a blast. People got to eat lunch WITH their dogs, and we had a contest were every dog received a prize, some two prizes. We had a bake sale, and what we didn't sell we put on a table next to the parade route and sold out in minutes! Cheesy

I tried to get this started when  Dr. Bagby and I turned the festival from a one day afair to a muliti-faceted affair back in 1990.    I visited with Barbecue cook-offs in Louisiana, Missouri, and Illinois and the guys at Anna were a great help.  Monica Smith chaired the group, and we sent out over two thousand invitations or more all over the country.    Got one cussing, one "maybe" and two days before, one "I'm coming".   Of course, we thanked the "I'm coming" and apologized for our mailing. 

  Part of the problem was that we were new to the action, had no known barbecuers in the sponsoring group,  and there were serveral established contests that same weekend.   If you can entice some of the known barbecuers from the area who attend the Memphis cook-off  to take an interest, you would be able to carry off a successful barbecue.  Of course,  you might have to start much smaller than we tried to do.   LOL  Walking on clouds is sometimes quite tricky.

After our failure to have the contest, however, there were a number of local barbecuers who did set up on the food court we had beside of Smith and Groves.   Man, was there some good eating down there that week.    I have never understood the Cavalier Club's reluctance to participate in what is supposed to be an enticement to make people aware that Cairo is a good place to come, to live, to spend money.
