Reviews forChicken Noodle Casserole
"Can anyone give a substitute to use in place of the mayo?"
"This was wonderful, but I did use some of the suggestions here. The second time I made it, I used 2 cans of COC soup and 8 oz of wide noodles instead of 12oz , (because it was very dry) added the celery and a small can of chilies. . Also added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of powdered chicken bouillon and a can of drained mushrooms and 1/3 package of frozen mixed veggies. So, even though I changed things the second time, I never would have been able to make such a great dish without the author of this recipe. So thanks again, Kay."
"Excellent! Creamy, cheesy, great taste! I followed the recipe, except I added a tablespoon of chopped chile peppers for my husband's preference. Will definitely be making this dish again!"
"Made this for the second time. Just as good as the first! My family loves it and it is so easy to make when life gets hectic! YUMMY!"
"OMG! The best tasty dish. I omitted the bell peppers. Wonderful. Delicious. This is my go to recipe."
"Yes, it sound great but too many recipes include a can of soup that is not gluten free and substitutes are not given. For celiacs, like myself it is frustrating. Clever cooks can surely provide alternatives."
"I'd forgotten about this recipe until I saw the Recipe of the Day today! Thank you for the well-timed reminder of a delicious & easy casserole! My family loved it when I first made it in Jan. 2000, so I'm sure they'll be just as happy to see it on the table this week. I didn't change a thing, other than using the healthy version of the soup & lite mayonnaise."
