Chicken Tetrazzini

It was my birthday this weekend and I decided to save my night out for when the new 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 since they don’t LOVE them like me.

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!

Chicken Tetrazzini
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 6 green onions chopped
  • 8 oz of fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2½ cups whipping cream or half and half
  • 1½ cups sour cream (I do use light sour cream)
  • 4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 1 (12 oz) package of egg noodles, cooked according to package
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 oz Parmesan cheese (the stuff in the green can just won't do, ya gotta have the real stuff)
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a skillet, saute the mushrooms and green onion in 2 Tbsp. butter and set aside.
  3. Combine ¾ cup butter, flour, and whipping cream in a sauce pan. 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.
  4. Mix sauce with noodles, chicken, and mushrooms/green onion mixture.
  5. Put half of the noodle mixture into a 9x13 pan and top with half of the Parmesan cheese. Then top with remaining noodle mixture and top with remaining Parmesan cheese.
  6. Bake at 300 for 45 minutes. Serves 8.
I have made this and frozen this before with success. Just thaw before baking. I also under cook the noodles slightly.

  • Made this one last night. Not my favorite. It’s ok. I didn’t think it tasted good enough to justify how fatening it is! I don’t think I’ll be making it again.

  • This looks delicious. I’ve gotta try it!

  • Happy Birthday. Today (well yesterday now) was actually my b-day) but I didn’t want to cook so we did go out. This sounds like something I would like, but not the rest of the family. I love to check out your latest dishes. Thanks for sharing.

  • This looks exactly like my kind of dinner. I love meals like this – extra calories or not!

  • That sounds so awesome! I love that you’re saving your night out for Twilight. I agree! I can’t wait to see it.
