A note about serious food allergies

Despite its Italian-sounding name, chicken tetrazzini is a wholly American invention. Freshly cooked pasta gets tossed in a creamy mushroom sauce and baked in a casserole with a crispy Parmesan breadcrumb topping. It's rich, hearty, and perfect for pleasing a crowd. If this ain't comfort food, we don't know what is.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente, 11-13 minutes. Drain in colander and rinse under cold water. This will stop cooking process. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince garlic. Quarter mushrooms. Stem and mince parsley. Place breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and 2 tsp. olive oil in a small bowl and mix together. Rinse chicken and pat dry. On a separate cutting board, cut chicken into 1/2” dice. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, parsley (reserving a bit for garnish), and garlic to hot pan and cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Add butter to pan. Once butter is melted, stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until a light brown paste has formed and begins to smell nutty, 2 minutes. This is known as a roux and acts as a thickener for sauce.

  4. 4

    Add the Chicken

    Add milk, chicken, and chicken base to pan. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, cook until sauce thickens, 5 minutes. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  5. 5

    Assemble and Bake Casserole

    Add pasta to pan and mix together thoroughly. Transfer entire mixture to prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle breadcrumb-Parmesan mixture over casserole. Cover and bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover, and bake until golden brown, bubbly, and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Allow casserole to rest at least 5 minutes. Garnish with reserved parsley. Gather the family around the table and dig in!
