Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my favorite recipes on this website. This is one of my favorite recipes on this website. The only difference I did is make it a little more creamier than what the picture is on here. To do that, I melted the Velveeta like we make our queso dip. We add a little milk to the velveeta and then add the ROTEL and microwave for about 45 seconds. Then we add it to the chicken spaghetti and let it melt the rest of the way! It's the best!! You can also get more of an Italian flavor to it, by using ROTEL with herbs and garlic! This is also just as good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious recipe! Delicious recipe! I used regular tomatoes, no chiles, because we aren't big fans of spicy but other than that, I did everything the way it was written. Maybe next time I will cook the spaghetti separate though because I turned away for 5 seconds and when I turned back some of the spaghetti had browned. And the chicken turned out a little dry so I might try and add the cheese a little earlier so the chicken can soak in the moisture.

As a fairly new cook, I need pretty simple stuff that doesn't require a lot of attention and effort. This one fit the bill, and my whole family, including my children, loved it. My 6-year old (the pickiest of the family) emphatically stated "This is a definite do-over, dad!" Great recipe, although I used broth in place of water, and added a can of Cream of Chicken & Mushroom soup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boyfriend is such a picky eater. My boyfriend is such a picky eater. I made this last night and got a "Hey this is pretty ** good!" It's the best compliment he has ever offered. He said it was hearty tasting and loved the "heat". I would suggest cooking more chicken than is on the recipe. I think there was enough chicken for the two of us but pasta/vegi for four. I will make this again!

I am always looking for something different to cook. Didn't know if husband would like it or not. To my surpise we both loved it. He told to make this again. Used more velveeta Next time I will put vegetables in ahead of cheese and let cook for awhile, then add cheese.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The taste was really good! The taste was really good! It was really watery before I put the cheese in and I just drained it out. Added the produce and the cheese and it was perfect. We don't care for cooked broccoli and this was perfect. It was still really crunchy. When I cooked the chicken, I cooked it with red pepper and ground cumin. A huge hit and will do it again!
