Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

"This is a delicious alternative to the usual spaghetti dish. I serve it often for my family, guests and potlucks. No matter how much I prepare, there's not a single bit left." - Jean McCorlew, Gainesville


1 boneless chicken breast, baked and cut into bite-size pieces

1 bell pepper, diced

1 large onion, diced

1 10.5 oz. can cream of chicken soup, undiluted

2/3 cup of milk

3 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 tbsp. onion powder

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

2 cups shredded cheese, divided (recommend: combination of Italian blend and mozzarella)

1 16 oz. bag Italian vermicelli, broken in 2-inch pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a pan, sauté bell pepper and onion with vegetable oil until soft. Combine chicken, bell pepper, onion, milk and tomatoes to pan. Add garlic powder and onion powder. Mix.
