Chicken and Bacon Spaghetti Pie

There is so much {great!} good going on in this Chicken and Bacon Spaghetti Pie, it has become one of our number one dinners after the first pie was baked a couple of weeks ago.

Yes, I have made it again, and again in only a few weeks. Mushrooms, celery, cheese ... delicious combination !

I know many of you might want to use a rotisserie chicken, which of course you could, BUT ... the way these fillets are cooked in all those wonderful spices and herbs, gives this dish it's amazing flavor to start with.

Also, the retained liquid from the chicken is so much better than ordinary chicken stock or something similar.

The dish puffs up quite a bit whilst baking, therefore take care to use a large oven dish which is deep enough for some puffing which will happen as I am sure you do not want a mess in your oven.
