Chicken Noodle Casserole

October 22, 2018Teresa

Okay, guys, I have the perfect dinner menu for you today. Chicken Noodle Casserole. Yes, it’s comfort food to the hilt. No kidding, this spectacular main dish entree is so sumptuous and mouthwatering you’ll want this on your weekly dinner menu! While I made it with a whole chicken cooked off, deboned (and broth saved), you can just as easily use canned chicken and broth. This casserole includes, peas, carrots, corn, Amish noodles and cream of mushroom and chicken soups for excellent flavor. It’s also seasoned with Italian seasoning, which gives just the oomph needed to make it delicious.

I saw pictures for this recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to make it. I’m so glad I did. It’s one of those recipes that actually delivers. So many times I have to modify and modify a recipe online to get it to either taste good or use more readily available ingredients. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m really more of a down-home style cook rather than an exotic gourmet specialist. Oh well….

My husband is a really great bargain shopper. He brought home six, yes SIX whole chickens one night when they were clearing them out at the grocery. I was trying to find ways to use those chickens up when I stumbled across this recipe. I actually made two of these delicious casseroles. The first time I made it for a Friday night care group in early August. Everyone loved it.

It was so good I decided to make it again the following week for friends. He had knee replacement surgery so I brought them a meal. It included this Chicken Noodle Casserole, Broccoli and Pearl Onion Casserole, Creamy Grape Salad, Greek Tomato Salad, Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread, Old-Fashioned Cherry Cobbler and some Fresh Cherry Muffins for breakfast the following day. I got rave reviews over everything.

I was trying to use up whole chickens to make room for other stuff in my freezer that’s why I went that route. But if you don’t have time, you can just as easily use pre-shredded chicken from the deli at any grocery store. Canned chicken broth is also the easy way to go. If you do cook off a chicken like I do, it’s nice to use some of that homemade broth to cook the noodles in. It adds much more flavor. I used Amish noodles. The particular brand I use absorb a LOT of liquid when mixed with other food. So I added an additional cup of chicken broth which made the casserole creamier. If you use regular dumpling noodles you won’t need to do that.

Give your family a break this week and make up a batch of this Chicken Noodle Casserole for dinner. They will all be licking their lips and thanking you from the bottom of their hearts. Seriously, this is one terrific chicken entree you won’t be able to get enough of. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Be sure to cover the casserole before baking as noodles can dry out if they’re not covered while baking.

NOTE: You can use leftover meat from a rotisserie chicken or canned chicken if that’s easier.

NOTE: Amish noodles absorb a lot of liquid. While they are superior to regular dumpling noodles, you will need to add additional chicken broth to this recipe. The noodles absorb much more of the liquid from the casserole than regular dumpling noodles. If you use regular dumpling noodles, you will not need to add the chicken broth.

NOTE: I made this recipe twice. The first time I used half-and-half. I used milk the second go around and I think milk works better. The second time I made the recipe I added a cup of chicken broth and used a 16-oz. pkg. peas and carrots. Overall, I thought those changes made the recipe better.

NOTE: Preparation time does not include time required to cook off and debone a whole chicken.
