postheadericon Chicken Tetrazinni

This is a great use for leftover chicken, onions, mushrooms, and pasta. Or if you really love it you can make it with all new ingredients too.

This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free recipe! It is also a wheat free, dairy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, top 8 allergen free, and corn free recipe.

Tray of tetrazinni


  • 1 batch White Sauce
  • 1/2 large onion, diced (or 1 small/medium)
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 3+ cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • up to 10 oz mushrooms, sliced (I like crimini)
  • 2 tsp+ italian seasoning, or similar mix of spices
  • pinch kosher salt
  • up to 1 lb pasta (spaghetti is traditional, but any pasta will work)
  • 2+ lbs chicken, cooked and diced (leftover rotisserie chicken or roasted chicken is great, so is BBQ chicken legs or whatever you have on hand)
  • optional: snippets of bacon, parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 and prepare a baking dish with a non-stick foil or a little oil to keep the casserole from sticking.

Chicken Tetrazinni

Make the White Sauce. If the pasta isn’t already cooked, cook the pasta al dente (for Tinkyada pasta, cook it a couple minutes less than package directions – it will cook more in the oven)

Saute the onion, garlic, and mushrooms in a skillet with a little olive oil. Season with salt & spices while cooking.

Take chicken off bones (save the bones for stock another day), dice, and put in a large bowl. Add pasta, white sauce, and sauted vegetables. Add bacon, if using. Mix well.

Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the top becomes crispy and it is bubbly. If someone at your table can tolerate dairy, they can sprinkle the top of their portion with parmesan.
