When I was growing up, we had a neighbor right up the street from us who was a mean cook. Joy always spoiled us with her delicious recipes and I’ll never forget the first time my family and I sat down at the dinner table with Joy and her husband to enjoy this delicious chicken spaghetti recipe. We ALL loved it!

For some reason, this recipe has stuck with me and become one of my favorite recipes in my recipe book. Joy passed away 15 years ago, but I feel like I’ve carried on her memory a little more every time I prepare this recipe. It’s my go to dish for new moms and their families, and I’ve had many requests for the recipe from those moms.

My husband has quite the sad face when he sees me making it but knows it’s headed out the door to a family with a new baby. It’s become a favorite around my dinner table, as well. I love hearing even our 14 year old get excited when she knows this chicken spaghetti recipe is on the menu for the evening.

Roubinek Reality
When it comes to comfort food, this is always where I start. It takes me back to “home” and reminds me of the love I was surrounded with growing up, in and around my childhood home.

I can only hope this chicken spaghetti is a fond memory for my own children when they’ve left home.

  7. I love taking yummy dishes over to a family with a new baby! Might have to make this one for my family … and another one for another family. The families around here are always having babies! I feel I’m in the minority… I have 3 boys. Let’s just say they have many more than I. (Did I mention I live in Utah? Does that explain it?)
