Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole (No Canned Soup Recipe)


Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole (no canned soups) 2

Last night was definitely a comfort food night. Even though summer is just a few weeks away the temperatures have dropped just a bit and there was a slight breeze. It was still nice out but it almost had a fall feel to the day. This was the first night we were all home together in four days so I wanted to make a fairly nice dinner for us.

Let me correct that. I wanted to make a nice, hearty dinner that was easy to put together.

Verdict:

This is the perfect comfort food. It was creamy and simple. I chose not to add extra garlic or spices other than a simple Morton’s Nature’s Seasoning, salt and pepper. Both kids ate two bowls for dinner and my son had leftovers today in his lunch.

Serve this with a green side salad and it is a great meal.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup less 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups heavy cream or 1/2 and 1/2 (I used fat-free 1/2 and 1/2 with no problem)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts, precooked and cubed (can be cooked however you choose or use a rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen mixed vegetables, partially thawed in refrigerator
  • 1 (12 oz) bag of Egg Noodles, cooked according to package directions – I used Amish Kitchens Extra Wide
  • 1 teaspoon + Morton’s Nature’s Seasoning

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 13 x 9 casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat melt the butter.
  3. Whisk in the flour until a thick paste is formed. Let cook 1-2 minutes until bubbly.
  4. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Let it come to a thickened state and then slowly whisk in the milk. Heat and whisk until desired consistency is reached. You want it to be a really thick gravy consistency. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  5. In a large bowl mix cooked noodles, cubed chicken, vegetables, cream sauce and seasoning until well blended. Taste and adjust spices to your liking.
  6. Pour mixture into casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes until heated through.
  7. Remove casserole from oven and serve hot.
