Chicken Tetrazzini! Invite to the 90’s.

For our fifth dish in the FABH series (that’s Feeding a Broken Heart and you can find out more about that here), we are tossing it back to a dish that tastes like my youth. Which is amusing, since I do not always remember my mama ever making Chicken Tetrazzini, however I do keep in mind the word tetrazzini being tossed around in the context of velvety noodle meals, and I do keep in mind liking it.

According to Wiki, tetrazzini is “an American meal … in a butter/cream and Parmesan sauce … seasoned with white wine.” So yes, you did pertain to the ideal location today.

Hey there and welcome.

Beyond butter and cream and Parmesan and white wine, tetrazzini suggests something totally more individual to me: it suggests that I have next-door neighbors who enjoy me.

It suggests that on a night not all that long earlier, when I was slogging my method through some really low psychological area, I experienced an actually generous kind of love. It indicated I had a warm meal embeded in front of me that was heavy with sautéed mushrooms, roasted chicken meat, egg noodles, and velvety béchamel sauce so essentially, a food hug. It suggests that when the knocking at the back entrance began, and we turned on the light to discover friendly confront with a huge foil pan in hand, I felt taken care of in a really genuine and fundamental and crucial method. I felt seen.

The important things about tetrazzini is that it has the prospective to make you question if it’s going to be great. I suggest, it certainly has that casserole ambiance that can in some cases be off-putting and mystical in a frightening method. I absolutely hear you on that.

However both when my next-door neighbor brought this over for us, and when I made it once again based upon their dish (which they kindly and adorably photocopied and dropped off in our mail slot thank you Joanne!), I was excitedly amazed that I am still a kid of the 90’s, and yes certainly I DO really enjoy this dish, casserole vibes and all.

Something about the smooth egg noodles (I copied my next-door neighbors and utilized ones that are long and straight, like fettuccine) with the meaty mushrooms and the charm that is a roasted pulled chicken … all of it broiled together under a crown of just-browned Parmesan has the power to work recovery magic on damaged and bruised hearts.
