Creamy Chicken Spaghetti

just another saturday...basting around 500 pounds of chicken!

*workin' the bbq sauce into the breasts!

okay, totally not a normal saturday for us but we spent the morning volunteering with our church for the great day of service. i signed hubs & i up to work with the open hand organization...in a nut shell, they make & deliver nutritious meals to those in the atlanta community with chronic disease, illness & who cannot afford a healthy meal.

we had 3 choices of where we wanted to be "placed" when we arrived: assembly line scooping food, warehouse or with the cooks. as you can see, i volunteered we work with the cooks.

*i know, sexy right?!

*i'll be ready to enjoy bbq chicken by...july 4th??!

*he loved the hair nets & aprons

*packaged meals ready for delivery

so in thinking about what to make for dinner...CHICKEN! kidding...we opted for chinese at my MIL's {mother-in-law}! but i couldn't resist craving this oldie but goodie from my recipe box. a perfect meal for the cold, rainy weather we're having. so grab a big bowl of creamy chicken spaghetti, snuggie & settle into a movie!
