Comforting Chicken Noodle Casserole
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min.
My family gives this 5 thumbs up. I made a mistake and forgot to buy the chicken, but I had a bag of breaded tenders in the fridge, so I used those. I sauteed' the onion, celery, and some minced garlic. I substituted sharp Cheddar for the Colby, used 11/2 cups of frozen peas and carrots, and added 1/2 cup of sour cream, and 1/2 cup of half and half. It filled a 9x13 casserole perfectly and along with a nice caesar salad, fed for 3 adult male children amd myself for 2 nights.
Delicious. I did make a few changes to use what I had on hand. I added more veggies (2 celery ribs, two large carrots, and extra green pepper (didn't use any red pepper since I didn't have any on hand). I also used a can of peas (drained), rather than just 1 cup frozen peas. I made it up the night before and then all I had to do was pop it in the oven when I got home from work. My husband loved it, too. I do believe I might stir in another can of cream of chicken soup or some sour cream next time as it was a little dry. But, we loved it and thought it made a tasty, hearty dinner.
This was very good and true comfort food! Like some of the other reviewers, I sauteed the peppers and onions before adding to the casserole and used frozen peas and carrots and omitted the celery. Since I had some baby portabella mushrooms I needed to use, I threw those in with the onion mixture too. I used a 16 ounce package of egg noodles, so I used two cans of cream of mushroom soup, some extra cheese and a little heavy cream. Will definitely make this again!
This is definitely a comfort casserole. Hearty and delicious, the only thing I changed was to add 1/2 C of sour cream to the ingredients. This recipe is a keeper!
My husband and I liked it, but thought the noodles without cheese on them were a bit bland. I may add a spice or 2 next time, like sage or thyme.
Thought it was very good. Next time just a bit more seasoning.
This was delicious (even my husband said so). I give it 4 stars because it was a little dry. Next time I will add an extra can of soup. I sprinkled some garlic powder in it and didn't have the peppers. Next time I will use the peppers. For anyone who thinks it is bland, just add a little spice, perhaps poultry seasoning, or garlic like I used. Even a pinch of cayenne. But it really wasn't bland, just needed more creaminess.
This was really good! I've made it a couple of times. We are a family of 3 adults and we eat small portions so this casserole makes 3 meals for us. I freeze in loaf-size portions for Sunday dinner. Stick it in the loaf pan before leaving for church and set the timer for it to bake while we are gone. When we get home we make a salad and dinner is ready. I think I will saute the onions a bit the next time. We like the peppers crunchy, but the onions not so much.
Good recipe. I added more veggies because I like a decent amount in my dishes and added some 1/2 & 1/2 to make it a bit creamier. Overall a good meal for the family.
I didn't have creamed corn, so I added a can of regular corn and a can of cheddar cheese soup. Per the other reviews, I also sautéed the veggies first. This was great!!!!!
