Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Spaghetti

I have a hard time hiding my love of The Pioneer Woman. But, why should I? Ree rocks! And, so does her food.  This is her spin on chicken spaghetti.  I have to say, it’s pretty good (even when you lower the fat content)!  This recipe is great for us because I will cook it on Sunday and we’ll eat it one day during the week.  My kids love anything that resembles spaghetti, so this is always a dish that I know they will eat.
