MARSHALL – In the early 1950s, James and Gerry Holland came to East Texas Baptist College as newlyweds from Georgia. Their beginnings in Marshall took them back to Georgia and then back to Marshall and around east Texas. Along the way, with their four children, Glen, Donna, Tracey and Becky, the Hollands experienced east Texas to the fullest as James was a bi-vocational minister.
At church dinners, they had a chance to enjoy Texas cooking at its finest. One of the Hollands’ favorite recipe is Texas-Style Chicken Spaghetti. Unlike the Texas-Style Chicken Spaghettis that most people in the Piney Woods savor, this recipe is full of mosaic flavers – minus the cheese.
For the week of May 6, the Texas Chicken Spaghetti recipe is the Piney Woods News Recipe of Week.

1 3-3 ½ lb. hen cooked, boned ,cut into bite size pieces. It is important to save broth.
