Easy Chicken Tetrazzini is a creamy, comforting pasta dish perfect for any family dinner. It features tender chunks of chicken and linguini enveloped in a rich, creamy sauce, topped with melted mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, then baked to golden perfection. This dish is a delightful blend of flavors and textures, making it a favorite for both casual weeknight dinners and special occasions.


1/2 cup butter, melted
2 (10.5 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
16 ounces linguini, cooked according to package directions
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


In a large mixing bowl, combine melted butter, cream of chicken soup, sour cream, chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Mix until smooth.
Add the cooked and chopped chicken breasts to the sauce mixture, ensuring even coating. Then, add the cooked linguini and toss until fully coated.
Transfer the mixture into a 9×13 inch glass baking dish, spreading it evenly.
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and grated parmesan cheese evenly over the top.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the sauce is bubbling around the edges.
Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and serve.


  • Pasta Choice: Linguini is traditionally used for its ability to hold the sauce well, but feel free to experiment with other types of pasta like fettuccine or spaghetti.
  • Protein Options: While chicken is the standard choice, you can substitute it with turkey or even a mix of seafood for a different flavor profile.
  • Cheese Layering: For an extra cheesy experience, layer some cheese within the pasta before topping it off with more cheese for baking.
