Can I Use Rotisserie Chicken Instead of Cook My Own?

Yes, if you don’t want to cook your own chicken breast cubes, rotisserie chicken works just fine. Don’t add the Italian Dressing seasoning to the Rotisserie chicken.

Be sure to not overcook the spaghetti noodles. I undercook them by 1 minute since they’re baked too.

    My family loved this dish. I got so many compliments. It was really good and a great dish for the fall. I didn’t have Italian dressing seasoning so I used a bit of garlic salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. I may try to sneak some veggies in there next time

    My husband said this is the best thing I have ever made! I loved how easy it was to make and the alfredo sauce was better than any others I have tried! Husband and Kid approved!

    This was extremely yummy! I did everything exactly as you listed except I did use the 1/3 lower fat cream cheese, but other than that I followed your recipe. I was surprised by how little ingredients were used for the alfredo sauce. I’m used to making a béchamel with the flour and butter and whisking for no lumps. This was far easier and, with that salad dressing packet, extremely tasty! I also added broccoli into the dish before putting it into the oven. The kids, husband, and I all loved it! Will definitely be making this again! Thank you for, yet again, a delicious, kid-friendly recipe!

    Is there any substitute for the italian dressing packet as where i come from,there is none. I don’t even know what it is. Is it like a salad dressing or a soup powder?

    1. Jenny

      Hi Chamila, you can leave it out. I would substitute with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning 🙂
