Courtney's Favorite Chicken Casserole

So named by my mother, who discovered this recipe many years ago on the back of a package of noodles. It's been a family and potluck favorite ever since. Excellent comfort food!!! The fat content of this can be reduced easily by substituting low-fat soup, milk, and cheese

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package wide egg noodles
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 34 cup milk
  • 2 cups cheese, shredded (I prefer sharp cheddar, but whatever floats your boat)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 12 cups cooked chicken breasts, diced (you may substitute canned chicken if you're pressed for time, but in this case done from scratch is)
  • breadcrumbs (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Boil noodles.
  3. While noodles are being prepared, in a pan make a sauce of everything except the chicken and the noodles.
  4. Add the noodles and chicken to the sauce and mix well.
  5. Put into a 3-qt. casserole dish and top with breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.

Wow! Delicious! My family loved it! I thought this would be great with some peas in it, but my daughter doesn't like peas, so I made some frozen peas and served them on the side, and mixed on my plate. The peas did add a nice touch if you like them.
