Chicken Tetrazzini

This is my absolute favorite dish EVER!! (just thought I would let you know)

3 Chicken breasts, cut into 1" strips
1 14.5-0z. pkg spaghetti
6 0z. mushrooms, sliced
3 Tbs butter
1 Tbs lemon juice
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Paprika

Sauce:
3 Tbs butter
2 Tbs four
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup heavy cream


Grill chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain. Turn into a 9x13 dish. Fold in grilled chicken. Saute mushrooms in butter with lemon juice. Toss with spaghetti and chicken. For sauce, melt butter and flour together in a saucepan. Add broth, seasonings, and cream. Cook and stir until sauce thickens slightly. Stir into chicken, spaghetti and mushrooms. Mixture will appear soupy, but liquid will be absorbed. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and paprika. Bake at 4oo for 25 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
