So ya’ll know by now that I like to keep it super simple right? That is exactly why we are using store-bought rotisserie chicken for this recipe.

My favorite store bought chicken is from Walmart.
I love, love, love, their traditional style rotisserie chicken. The flavor of this chicken is absolutely amazing.

Don’t have a Walmart in your area, use your favorite store-bought chicken. This recipe is meant to be simple and quick!

You know because we want great food, but don’t always want to spend hours in the kitchen right?

All you have to do with the chicken is shred a combination of white and dark meat. The chicken I use is so tender that I can easily shred it with my hands. I did not use a knife to cut the meat. For one, I don’t like the meat to be too fine.

Also, cutting the meat into small pieces can cause it to become mushy like, and in my experience, makes it hard to taste the chicken once it’s mixed tougher with the cheese, cream of mushroom and cream of chicken. You want the dish to have some texture besides from just the noodles.

I think the first time I had this recipe was at a potluck at work. I was like Chicken tetrazzini? What’s that? I mean my mom made home-cooked meals every week, but it was nothing like this. I’m a big cheese lover so this dish as a hit for me.

But you know what, I really didn’t go heavy on the cheese with the recipe. It may seem like it from the photo, but I added just enough.

I don’t really think you need that much cheese. The cream of chicken and cream of mushroom really make the dish so creamy that you don’t need a ton of cheese.I hope you all enjoy this recipe!
