Description

A creamy, dreamy comfort food delight. Cooked chicken, creamy white sauce, mushrooms, and olives. To die for.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Cut Up Fryer Chicken
  • 1 stick 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 16 ounces, weight White Mushrooms, Sliced
  • ¼ cups Dry White Wine
  • Kosher Salt And Pepper
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth (reserved From Chicken Or Canned)
  • 1-½ cup Whole Milk
  • ¼ cups (additional) Dry White Wine
  • 1 cup Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 cup Whole Black Olives, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt, Or To Taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Extra Cheese, For Sprinkling
  • 1 pound Thin Spaghetti

Preparation

Place chicken in a pot of water and boil on medium-low heat for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and allow to cool slightly. Keep broth in pot.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Throw in mushrooms, add 1/4 cup white wine, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until liquid has totally evaporated. Remove mushrooms from skillet. Set aside.

Bring broth to a boil. Break spaghetti into thirds (shorter pieces). Add spaghetti pieces to boiling broth and cook. Drain when al dente. Remove meat from bones and shred until you have 2-plus cups of shredded chicken.

Return large skillet to medium-low heat. Add 6 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle flour over butter, whisking to combine. Cook for 1 or 2 minutes. Pour in 2 cups broth and whisk to combine. Pour in milk, additional 1/4 cup wine, salt and pepper to taste, then cook and bubble until thick. Turn off heat, add Parmesan cheese, and stir.

Add mushrooms, chicken, and chopped olives. Stir to combine and check seasonings. Add cooked spaghetti and stir.

Turn into a 9 x 13 casserole pan. Bake at 350 degrees or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with salad and warm, crusty bread.

I made this for the first time last night. It is now my favorite dish to date. Very easy to make and the flavor was outstanding! I had to change a few things only because I didn’t have them on hand. Here are the changes I made…
I took chicken thighs and cut them into cubes. Cooked them in a frying pan with some olive oil, salt and pepper until cooked through. I was out of black olives so I used green olives they were very tasty in this dish. I was out of white wine so I used some Marsala wine instead for both the mushrooms and the flour/butter mixture. For the final change I left out the 2 cups of broth in the flour/butter mixture(because I forgot to reserve it and didn’t have more to add) it turned out wonderful. My family is now in love with this dish! Thank you Ree for yet another amazing meal!

I made this last night, and it was delicious. However, I thought a 12 oz. package of spaghetti would be about right for this recipe. I cooked the 16 oz pkg and ended up not even using about a fourth of it. Next time, I will use the smaller package.

We normally throw out at least a little from any casserole but not with this one! Hubby and I loved it.

Absolutely delicious! Made this tonight for dinner and got raving reviews from the whole family! Made a couple of substitutions-scallions for olives and light cream for milk (grocery store did not have whole milk). Will be making it again and again!
