Low Carb Chicken Tetrazzini

One of my favorite comfort foods was turkey tetrazzini.  Whether Mom made it or Stouffers made it, I loved it.  Being low carb means being without flour pastas.  I’ve not had tetrazzini for years until I realized that I could easily make it. There is a whole world opened up in using noodle alternatives like hearts of palm noodles, that are in this dish and my beef stroganoff.  

Give this tetrazzini a try!

  • 1 can Palmini
  • 1 1/2 cups Chicken Breast rotisserie
  • 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1/2 cup Mushrooms canned or fresh sauteed.

  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Tbsp Sherry sweet
  • 1/2 cup Pork Rinds crushed


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Open, drain and rinse the can of Palmini linguine noodles. You can use as is or cover in milk for 10 minutes and drain and rinse to remove acidity from packing liquid. Place noodles in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish.

  3. Saute 1 Tbsp of butter, celery and mushrooms until soft.

  4. Add soup, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, celery/mushroom mixture, salt, pepper and sherry to noodles and mix.

  5. Top with crushed pork rinds.

  6. Bake 45 minutes.

  7. Let cool a few minutes and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • I've used both chicken and turkey in this recipe.  I liked pulled chicken breast the best, to be honest.
  • I'm lazy.  I could make a sauce, but I'm into convenience and cream of mushroom soup and cream of chicken soups are never leaving my pantry. 
  • If you use buttered Panko crumbs on top instead of pork rind crumbs, you will add about 4 more carbs per serving.  (1 Tbsp melted butter mixed with 1/2 cup Panko.)
  • If you don't use pork rind crumbs at all, the carbs per serving stays the same.
  • To me, it is the sherry that makes it!  Kind of like how sherry makes crab bisque so scrumptious.  It just takes it to another level of flavor.  However, if you don't have sherry, this recipe is delicious without it.
