recipe for the picky eater

January 11, 2011

We are all picky eaters in this home.

Chris & I eat like 2 little kids....we like things bland, sweet and are not fans of "nice" food. We would rather eat a twinkie than a sprinkles cupcake. It's true.

We love gummy snacks, chocolate pudding, capri suns, lunchables & the list goes on...

Sweet Aiden also tends to be a bit picky.

But he will eat plate fulls of my chicken spaghetti. This recipe is simple, bland & easy. If you have a kiddo, try it out....if you need more taste in your food...add some rotel to the recipe.



You will need:
raw noodles
grated cheese
1 can of cream of chicken
1 can of cream of mushroom
(if you want you can add black olives & rotel....we leave these OUT!)

Cook chicken (or buy it cooked at the store). When I cook chicken I let it sit all morning in a ziplock bag filled with ranch dressing. I take the raw chicken out, still covered in ranch, and place it in the oven for 1 hour (350 degrees).

Cook spaghetti noodles.

Shred your chicken into tiny pieces and place in large bowl. Mix in your 2 cans (cream of chicken, cream of mushroom).

Mix in your cooked spaghetti noodles & half a bag of grated cheese.

Pour everything into a casserole dish and sprinkle additional cheese on top.

Place foil on top, cook one hour at 350 degrees.


  1. That is exactly how I eat, and it drives John-Michael crazy! I will have to try this recipe minus the cream of mushroom :)! I am happy living off cheese, chicken, pasta, and bread!

  2. I used to have this dish as a kid all the time! Except my Mom used Velveeta on top. Now I ave to make it for dinner this week.
