    Chicken Tetrazzini has been around for many years; a good hardy and very nourishing meal for both the small and large family. It was always a delight, in my family, when my mother made this dish. I have made some changes from the original recipe, but you will delight in its taste. Legend has it that chicken Tetrazzini was created in San Francisco, named for Luisa Tetrazzini, a popular opera star in the early 20th Century
