Chicken, Brie & Tomato Spaghetti

chicken brie spaghetti

My love affair with cheese started when I was fairly young. Baked brie with apricot jam made a regular appearance at nearly all of my parents’ holiday gatherings and parties, and I would definitely sneak way more bites than I should have. I quickly learned to move on from that baked, gooey treat to enjoying brie in nearly any form I could get it.

Nowadays, brie might not be on our regular dining rotation, but we have still managed to instill a small brie-love gene in the kids. (Goat cheese is the first favorite, but brie is a close second.) They are definitely fans of baked brie just like I was, but they’ll gladly eat it in any form we serve it in. That makes me happy!

This Chicken, Brie, and Tomato Spaghetti is a super-quick dinner or lunch that tastes luxurious without any of the hassle. Fancy enough to impress company, yet easy enough to eat any night of the week…that’s absolutely a win in my book!

  1. Positively LOVE brie!!
    Get to have it a couple times a year, mostly as grill cheese or on crackers. My problem is the rind how do you handle the rind? How do you cut the rind.
    Even if have to deal with the rind I think I have a new recipe to try here.
