Chicken Noodle Casserole
Prep Time: 10 mins. Cook Time: 40 mins. Servings: 6
This cheesy chicken noodle casserole is made with a creamy mushroom sauce, chicken, cheese, and broccoli.
Make it up to 2 days ahead of time!
3 cups dry Rotini
1 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/3 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
10.5 oz. cream of mushroom soup, (cream of
chicken works well too)
8 oz. sour cream, equal to one cup
1/2 cup milk, any kind
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup regular cheddar, shredded
½ cup French’s crispy fried onions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Boil the Rotini and cook for 1 minute less than al dente, refer to package for cooking time. Prepare the rest of
the casserole as the pasta cooks.
Season the cubed chicken with 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/3 tsp garlic salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper.
Heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and sear, tossing occasionally,
for 4 minutes.
Add the broccoli, (you may need to drizzle on some additional olive oil.) Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat.
In a small bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup, milk, 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, and sour cream. Add
the cooked chicken and broccoli.
Drain the pasta and combine it with the casserole ingredients.
Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish and add the casserole filling. Top with 1 cup regular cheddar cheese.
Cover and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove the cover. Top with crispy fried onions and bake for an additional 8 minutes.
I have used egg noodles for this recipe as well, but they are thinner and don’t hold up quite as well as Rotini.
I like to use Cabot sharp white cheddar cheese in this casserole but you can use any kind of cheddar; it doesn’t
have to be sharp.
Smoked Sausage and Potato Bake DOUBLE THIS RECIPE FOR A 9×13 PAN
1 package of sliced Eckrich skinless smoked sausage.
8 quartered Yukon gold potatoes.
1 diced green pepper.
1 diced yellow pepper.
2 tbsps. of butter.
1 tsp of oregano.
1 tsp of basil.
½ tsp of black pepper.
2 tsps. of olive oil.
Preheat the oven to 375°.
In a pan, arrange the sausage, potatoes and peppers and place the butter over the top in small cubes.
Drizzle with olive oil and season on top.
Bake covered for 40 to 50 minutes.
NOTE: I sometimes make this with veggies, carrots, zucchini, broccoli and some cheese over the top; it goes really
well with the seasonings. You may also substitute ham for the sausage.
