This is DELICIOUS! However, there was a bit too much onion, and almost ruined it for me. I would definitely make this again, but cut the onion way back. Also did not use the peppers, just a personal preference.

I'm severely allergic to eggs, (can't even get the flu shot as a result) and use the egg free mayo, or make my own. Although the tip states not to use low fat or fat free mayo, would the egg free mayo work? Never tried cooking with it- only used it for sandwiches as it isn't my favorite. If not, perhaps a sour cream or cream cheese, or combo of the two with lemon juice and garlic? There are egg free "egg noodles" but, normally make my own. So many allergies in the family.....

Good flavor, thought it needed to be a little creamier.

Sorry, but with over 600 calories, 35 grams fat ( 12 of which is saturated fat) plus over 750 g. PER 1 C !! serving , this is not going to be in my rotation of recipes. .One does not need to be a health nut...But this is just inviting trouble on so many levels. It is tasty, with a few minor changes or additions. But if I am going to splurge on fat, salt, and calories, for only 1 C. of food, there are far better ways to do that. I just can't imagine feeding this as a meal to someone I love.....especially if they were inclined to use even a slightly larger portion, let alone come back for 2nds!

Followed recipe. Did not like the taste. The mayo taste in my opinion overwhelmed the other tastes If I make it again I will lose the lemon juice and use sour cream in the place of the mayo

This was so delicious!! I will admit to adding a few extra veggies to the dish and a splash of cream because I was afraid it would be dry. It was not dry at all with one can of soup, the mayo, a quarter cup of sour cream and the lemon juice. And was it ever super tasty!! I added a can of chopped green chili’s with the liquid, used cream of mushroom soup, added fresh sliced mushrooms and some spinach and used some pepperjack cheese as we love Southwest flavors here in this house. Only used 8 ounces of egg noodles and could barely fit the whole thing in a 2 quart casserole dish! Baked as directed, let it rest for as long as I could wait. One of the best chicken noodle casseroles I have ever made. Thanks for sharing!!

This was simple to make and tasted good. I made it exactly as written with no changes. The family loved it! It is definitely going into the rotation. I also made one to freeze!

First....Debbie wanted substitute for mayo...yogurt maybe? We loved it. Doubled sauce recipe like some had said. Added peas and used larger onion. Great recipe

Great way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken! I used cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken, and used a 16 ounce package of egg noodles, so I doubled the soup and mayo. Also used only green pepper, since I didn't have any red pepper on hand. The lemon juice adds a nice touch. Family loved it! Will make this one again! Volunteer Field Editor
