How to Make Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole
Chick. Make sure to start with cooked chicken. Roasting and dicing in the oven is really easy, but you can also use shredded or roasted chicken. I like to buy those at the grocery store or Costco and use chicken in recipes throughout the week. Life hack! But cooking the chicken yourself in advance works just as well.
Noodle. Cook the egg noodles according to the package directions, then drain.
Mix and combine. Combine your chicken and cooked pasta in a bowl. Combine soup, sour cream, carrots and broccoli in a separate bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Gently mix the chicken and pasta mixture with the soup and vegetables. Pour it all into a 2-quart baking sheet and set aside.
Cookie topping. Combine crumbled biscuits and melted butter. Never mind me…just drooling here. I love crumbs on anything. Spread cookies on top of casserole before placing in oven.
bake. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. When it’s slightly brown on top, it’s ready to be swallowed!
Try adding different vegetables, such as mixed greens, broccoli florets, or bell peppers. You can substitute turkey, ham or tuna for chicken. You can also use fried onions, seasoned breadcrumbs, or tortilla chips in place of crumbled crackers.
forward and store
make ahead/freeze: If you’re going to freeze, you’ll want to undercook the noodles and leave out the cookie topping. Once the casserole is assembled, place it in an airtight freezer-safe container before baking. Store in the refrigerator for 4-6 months.
When you’re ready to eat, place the casserole on the baking sheet and top with the cookies. Reheat from freezer: Bake at 400°F. 55 minutes or until warm. To reheat after thawing in the refrigerator: Bake, cover, and bake for 35-40 minutes or until warm.
Store leftovers. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Use oven to reheat most: 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until hot. For single servings, heat in microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until warm.
