This is a really good and easy recipe.
Rotel Chicken Spaghetti
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (chopped into bite sized pieces)
1 can Rotel Tomatoes with Diced Green Chiles (undrained)
1 green bell pepper (diced)
1 small white onion (diced)
16 oz. Velveeta Cheese Loaf, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 lb. package Thin Spaghetti Noodles
Cook chicken in 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter until almost done. Add bell pepper and onion to the chicken and saute until chicken is cooked and vegetables are soft.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti noodles according to package directions.
Combine chicken, pepper and onions with the cooked spaghetti noodles while they are still hot. Add cubes of Velveeta cheese to the mix and stir until everything is combined and the Velveeta cheese is completely melted. Tip: Mix ingredients in a large saucepan on low heat to help cheese melt quickly.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Spread chicken noodle mixture into a 9×13 baking dish.
Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly, about 30 minutes.
