Chicken Noodle Casserole



When you cook vintage recipes, particularly ones from Southern church cookbooks, you sort of figure out a certain formula for casseroles. Cream of something soup, vegetables, maybe some meat, a starch, and a breadcrumb/butter/cheese topping. Well, I had some cooked egg noodles in the fridge that needed to be cooked. I also had some chicken breasts, carrots and peas, cream of mushroom and cream of celery soups, bread crumbs, butter, and cheddar cheese. Thus, my spin on chicken noodle casserole was born!


Ingredients: chicken, pasta, carrots, peas, cream of mushroom soup, cream of celery soup, bread crumbs, butter, cheddar cheese

Step 1: Cook chicken and either shred or cut into chunks. Prepare pasta. Step 2: Combine chicken, pasta, vegetables, and soups into a 9x13 casserole dish. (I think that frozen vegetables would have had a brighter color and better taste, but I didn't have any on hand. You can use either one.) Step 3: Melt butter and mix with bread crumbs. Combine bread crumb mixture with cheese and sprinkle over the top of the casserole. Step 4: Bake at 375 F until bubbly and top is golden brown.
