It was my birthday this weekend and I decided to save my night out for when the Twilight movie comes out. Since we were going to be home for my birthday I wanted to have something that I like for dinner. So, I decided to make my Aunt’s recipe for Chicken Tetrazzini with mushrooms and all. The mushrooms are big enough I figure the rest of them can just pick them out. This is similar to a fettuccine alfredo, but you add sour cream to the sauce also. This recipe is full of calories, so it’s something I make occasionally. It is so worth the occasional spluge though. It’s heavenly!
2 tablespoons butter
6 green onions chopped
8 oz of fresh mushrooms, sliced
4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
12 oz. package of egg noodles, cooked according to package
1 1/2 cubes of butter
3 Tablespoons flour
2 1/2 cups whipping cream or half and half
1 1/2 cups sour cream (I do use light sour cream)
salt and pepper
3 oz Parmesan cheese (the stuff in the green can just won’t do, ya gotta have the real stuff)
Saute the mushrooms and green onion in 2 Tbsp. butter and set aside.
Combine butter, whipping cream, and flour in a sauce pan and cook over medium heat. Cook until it starts to thicken then remove from the heat and mix in the sour cream plus salt and pepper to taste. Mix sauce with noodles, chicken, mushrooms and green onion. Put half of the noodle mixture into a 9×13 pan and top with half of the Parmesan cheese. Then top with remaining noodle mixture and top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake at 300 for 45 minutes. (I would say this makes 8 servings)
