Guys.

I’m getting ready for my summer bod.

With chicken parmesan.

And plenty of cheese.

I know.

It sounds too good to be true.

But don’t worry.

We’re subbing out the pasta.

And using spaghetti squash instead.

I know.

I’m kind of a genius.

Sumer 2017.

We’re ready for you.

Spaghetti Squash Chicken Parmesan

An amazingly healthier version of everyone’s favorite chicken parm without compromising taste. The best comfort food!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise in half
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

For the spaghetti squash

  • 1 (2-3 pounds) spaghetti squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise from stem to tail and scrape out the seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Place squash, cut-side down, onto the prepared baking dish. Place into oven and roast until tender, about 35-45 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and let rest until cool enough to handle.
  5. Using a fork, scrape the flesh to create long strands.
  6. In a large bowl, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan; set aside.
  7. Working one at a time, dredge chicken in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in breadcrumbs mixture, pressing to coat.
  8. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.
  9. Preheat oven to broil. Lightly oil a large oven-proof skillet or baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
  10. Add spaghetti squash to the prepared skillet baking dish and layer with chicken; sprinkle with cheese.
  11. Place into oven and cook until melted and golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  12. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

Chicken Tetrazzini

Chicken Tetrazzini! Welcome to the 90’s.

For our 5th recipe in the FABH series (that’s Feeding a Broken Heart and you can read more about that here), we are throwing it back to a recipe that tastes like my childhood. Which is funny, because I don’t necessarily remember my mom ever making Chicken Tetrazzini, but I do remember the word tetrazzini being thrown around in the context of creamy noodle dishes, and I do remember loving it.

According to Wiki, tetrazzini is “an American dish… in a butter/cream and Parmesan sauce… flavored with wine.” So yes, you did come to the right place today.

Hello and welcome.

Beyond butter and cream and Parmesan and wine, tetrazzini means something entirely more personal to me: it means that I have neighbors who love me.

It means that on a night not all that long ago, when I was slogging my way through some very low emotional territory, I experienced a really generous type of love. It meant I had a warm meal set in front of me that was heavy with sautéed mushrooms, roasted chicken meat, egg noodles, and creamy béchamel sauce – so basically, a food hug. It means that when the knocking at the back door started, and we flipped on the light to find friendly face with a very large foil pan in hand, I felt cared for in a very real and basic and important way. I felt seen.

The thing about tetrazzini is that it has the potential to make you wonder if it’s going to be good. I mean, it definitely has that casserole vibe that can sometimes be off-putting and mysterious in a scary way. I totally hear you on that.

But both when my neighbor brought this over for us, and when I made it again based on their recipe (which they kindly and adorably photocopied and dropped off in our mail slot – thank you Joanne!), I was excitedly surprised that I am still a child of the 90’s, and yes indeed – I DO actually love this recipe, casserole vibes and all.

Something about the silky egg noodles (I copied my neighbors and used ones that are long and straight, like fettuccine) with the meaty mushrooms and the beauty that is a roasted pulled chicken… all of it broiled together under a crown of just-browned Parmesan has the power to work healing magic on broken and bruised hearts.

It also makes for a very large pan which makes for very long-lasting leftovers which makes for happy bellies on lazy nights when all you can really do is Netflix in jammies.

Said like someone who knows.

Chicken tetrazzini, my friends. The time is now.

Chicken Tetrazzini


  • Author: Lindsay
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8

Description

Chicken Tetrazzini: egg noodles, sautéed mushrooms, roast chicken all baked together with a béchamel sauce.


Ingredients

Chicken Tetrazzini:

  • one 3-pound rotisserie chicken, meat pulled and shredded
  • 1 pound cooked egg noodles (I like the Alberto’s brand)
  • 1 pound sliced mushrooms, sautéed
  • 3-4 cups tetrazzini sauce (see below)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Tetrazzini Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk or cream (I used 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 cup whole milk, but I think half and half would also work)
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (more as needed)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine

Instructions

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the ingredients – pull the chicken, cook the noodles, sauté the mushrooms.
  2. Sauce: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until incorporated. Cook for a few minutes to remove the floury taste. Slowly add the milk and broth, a little bit at a time, whisking after each addition until you get a nice, smooth, thickened sauce. Season with salt and stir in the wine. Taste and adjust – more salt, more wine, more broth to thin the sauce, etc.
  3. Assemble: Toss the noodles with about a cup of sauce. In a greased 9×13 pan, layer: sauced-up noodles, mushrooms, half of sauce, chicken, remaining half of sauce, and Parmesan.
  4. Bake: Bake for 30 minutes until melty and bubbly. Broil for 5 minutes to get the top browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste for serving. YUM-O.

Notes

Sprinkle with parsley when it comes out of the oven if you want to be fancy about it!

If making ahead, undercook the noodles a bit and assemble everything, but do not bake. It should freeze beautifully.

Pressure Cooker Beef Brisket

My family has always cooked our Passover brisket in the oven, low and slow. It’s delicious, but takes over three hours to make! This year, I wanted to see if I could speed up the process using a pressure cooker.

And you know what? You can.

Using a pressure cooker, you can make tender, deeply flavorful brisket with a thick, rich gravy in about half the time!
