Reviews forChicken & Cheese Noodle Bake
"This recipe looked like a winner from the very beginning and then when I saw it came from someone from Bluffton I knew I had to try it! I'm from Bluffton also! This was very good! but I did two cans of cream of chicken and a lot of black pepper Thanks for the great recipe!"
"My teenage son claims this is his favorite food on this planet. Sometimes I use canned chicken, which has its own broth, so I pour the broth into a container to freeze for soup. I had some dehydrated red & green bell peppers to use up, so I tried mixing them into the sauce and it was great. One of my kids detests "slimy" mushrooms, so I use a strainer on the cream of mushroom and push it through with the back of a large spoon and scrape the mushroom-pieces-free soup off the outside of the strainer. I use a huge Tupperware bowl to mix it all in; using an extra large mixing spatula handles the task well. I freeze half of it in a glass 9 x 13 casserole, seal it with Glad Press and Seal, then cover with foil and tape the instructions and date to the top."
"It looks marvelous!!"
"Yes, home made noodles would make this better. Mine are PA Dutch type, using my mother's recipe. 1 cup flour, 1 beaten egg, dash of salt, 1/2 egg shell of water. mix, knead, then roll out to desired thickness and let air dry for a while on a floured surface, like a clean pastry cloth. When they start to crack around the edges, cut into large squares (5x5), stack up and slice. I like mine about 1/8 inch wide. Fluff up the pile of noodles and dry a little longer. These can be used right away or frozen for later. The drying makes them a bit more chewy than if you use them without drying. Yummy-"
"4.5 stars. Made almost as written, I did change the spaghetti to whole wheat and the cheddar to Parmesan. Also added some chopped celery. As usual, I added spices to add more flavor: garlic and onion powders, celery seed, oregano, basil. I just realized that I forgot the sour cream! Oh well, it didn't need it, it tasted great without the extra fat and calories. I would make this again."
"Wonderful recipe! so good! you can adjust it to your likes! I used green onions and canned chicken . Everyone loved it!"
"This an easy recipe to adjust to your own taste. I used whole wheat rigatoni in place of the spaghetti. The cream soups can be of your choice and so can the types of vegetables and cheeses. I swapped out the 2% milk for half and half, added 2 pressed cloves of garlic and 1/4 cup of white wine. Instead of 2 7x11 baking dishes I made it in 1 deep dish 9x13. Also the portion size must have been off in the recipe because we both ate it 3 nights in a row, and it made 6 not 12 portions."
"superbadmom, do you have a recipe for homemade noodles that you could send to toh?? would love to see a recipe there. :)"
"I made this for a co-worker whose wife just had a baby and it's delicious. Would make this for my family."
