Cheesy and Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini

Cheesy and Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound fettuccine pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 10 tablespoons shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 10 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 pinch dried thyme, or to taste
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in the fettuccine, bring back to a boil, and cook pasta over medium heat until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken strips in the hot oil until no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken to a bowl, leaving pan drippings in skillet. Melt margarine in the hot skillet; cook and stir mushrooms, onion, and garlic in skillet until mushrooms have softened and given up their liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir red bell pepper into mixture and sprinkle with flour. Stir to coat and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  4. Slowly mix chicken broth into vegetables, stirring to form a thick sauce; mix cream and milk into sauce. Simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Mix 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, thyme, salt, and black pepper into sauce and simmer until cheese have melted and combined with sauce.
  5. Spread half the cooked fettuccine pasta into bottom of prepared casserole dish, top with half the chicken and half the cream sauce. Repeat layers once more and sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons Swiss cheese, 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese, and 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese over the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese topping is nicely browned, 25 to 30 minutes.
