Recipe: Crockpot Chicken/Turkey Tetrazzini

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on January 7, 2010

Sometimes you just need a nice crockpot full of delicious comfort food.  This Turkey Tetrazzini fits the bill using items typical found in the frugal refrigerator.

Crockpot Chicken/Turkey Tetrazzini

1 C chicken or turkey, cooked
8 oz spaghetti, cooked
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
2-4 TBS Butter
8 oz cheddar cheese
1 can sliced mushroom (, 7 oz.)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can chicken broth

Dice & sautee vegetables in butter.
Combine all ingredients in crockpot & cook on low for 6-8 hrs.


Use Ham, canned chicken or tuna in place of the Chicken or Turkey.
Replace soup with homemade “Cream of” soup, homemade whitesauce or a can of cheddar cheese soup.
Increase liquid by 2/3 C (water or broth) and use uncooked noodles.
Substitute any type of pasta (or even rice) for the spaghetti.
Skip the sautee step and toss in the celery, onion & pepper uncooked.
Add peas (canned or frozen) to up the veggie quotient.

Thanks so much for posting this! This is the sort of thing I never feel comfortable just making up because the ratios of liquid to “stuff” is very important!

This sounds SO good – snowy here and I know what I will be making tomorrow! It’s already nearly dinnertime now here in the UK, or I’d do it today.

Thanks for posting this!

Thank you so much for the recipe! I’ll definitely be making this. I love my crockpot because I can make something earlier in the day when I still have the motivation and the energy!
