Chicken Casserole

An Easy Chicken Noodle Casserole Recipe


When I was a teenager, my girlfriend’s mother would always make these wonderful Casseroles with sausage, turkey or tuna.  As an adult I have found it difficult to find really good casserole recipes.  So here is a really great Chicken Noodle Casserole recipe I developed after my friend Katherine had her baby and I wanted to bring some comfort food to her and her husband.

  1. 6-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (enough to yield 3-4 cups cooked meat)
  2. 6 ounces egg noodles
  3. 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  4. 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
  5. 1 cup sour cream
  6. 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  7. 1/4 Parmesan cheese
  8. salt to taste
  9. freshly ground black pepper to taste
  10. 1 cup crumbled Ritz or social crackers
  11. 1/2 cup butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil for cooking the chicken. I usually use about 4 quarts of water and add a little chicken bouillon, a quartered onion and maybe a carrot or celery if I have some. Cook the chicken, simmering until it is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove the chicken to to a plate to cool. When the chicken has cooled, cut/chop it into small pieces.
  3. Using the water in which you cooked the chicken, return to a boil and cook the egg noodles per their package instructions. Drain and reserve.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the soups, sour cream, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese salt and pepper. Add the chicken and mix gently. Fold in the the noodles and mix gently.
  5. Melt the butter over low heat, remove from the heat and add the the crumbled crackers.
  6. To assemble, place the casserole mixture in a greased, 2 quart baking dish and top with the top the casserole with the butter/cracker mix. Place in the 350 degree oven and bake for about 30 minutes until the casserole is heated through and the top has browned.
  1. If you want to avoid cooking the chicken, you could use a rotisserie chicken or other cooked chicken. However, you would also lose the extra treat of cooking the noodles in the chicken broth.
  2. You can also add peas and other veggies, if you like.
