When you think of COMFORT FOOD what do you think of?  For me, it’s Chicken and Noodles – whenever we had colds or were feeling under the weather Mom made us this DELICIOUS recipe.  It’s the perfect comfort food recipe because it’s simple to throw together if you’re not up for being in the kitchen and it’s a warm and easy meal on sick bodies.

Next to our Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe, this is our favorite Chicken recipe!

How to Make Chicken Noodle Casserole

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 package {16oz.}  frozen peas, carrots, beans and corn
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Chopped onion
  • 2 TBSP. Melted Butter
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning

Instructions

Cook noodles according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.

Drain noodles; add to chicken mixture.

Transfer to greased 8 inch cake pan (I used a pie plate like THIS one).

Cover and bake remaining casserole at 350 for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 10-15 minutes longer until heated through.

This was a great dish to make for the sickies in our house.  Another suggestion that I have is to double your recipe when you make it, then you can freeze one batch to have on hand those days that you don’t feel like you can spend much time in the kitchen because you are feeling under the weather or if you’re in a hurry and need a quick meal to throw in.

My boys aren’t huge Pea’s fans – so if your kids are like mine just take them out!  OR you could replace the peas with green beans.  Both ways are so good!

    I made this for dinner tonight. I would do one thing differently. I would saute the onions because they were raw, crunchy and threw the taste off. Also, it wasn’t quite “hot”; perhaps the timing should be a bit more. My husband loved it; it is full of veggies and chicken and made a good wholesome dinner (except for those darn onions!!) I will definitely make it again with those slight changes.

  • Nykki


    I just made this for dinner..It is soooooooo delish…Loving it

  • Sheree Fuchs


    Could you use turkey I of chicken in this? Looking for a way to use leftover turkey. Thanks!

  • S. Lanci


    We’re living abroad so there isn’t canned cream of chicken etc soups. Any ideas is substitutions? Thank you.

    • Sam


      I’ve made my own cream of chicken (I’ve also made cream of mushroom too) before – not from the can. So much better! There are recipes everywhere 🙂

  • sarah


    I am interested in making extra to freeze. Do you freeze the noodles as well? What are the cooking instructions when frozen?

    Thank you.

  • Alicia


    Di you use a italian dressing in the dry seasoning jar or just like a italian dressing packet that you can get for salad dressing?
    Thank you! can’t wait to make this 🙂

    Found this recipe on Pinterest and finally made it yesterday. It is absolutely delicious! I didn’t add onions but used onion powder. I served it on top of a sliced biscuit and it was quite a hearty and comforting meal. Thank you for sharing, will definitely be making this recipe again. It is perfect for this cold, wintery weather we are getting!

    I am a college student, so I do not have a lot of time to prepare a meal normally. When I found this recipe I was super excited because it looks just like a home cooked meal. It was extremely easy to make! I seasoned the chicken a little and put some oil in the pan. I also put some of those little fried onion things on top! This was one of the best meals I have ever had, I emailed it to everyone in my family and told them they MUST make it!

  • Liha


    We loved this (myself, adult son and his gfriend). It was quick and easy to prepare. Only changes was I didn’t put in onion, but I did put in 2c of baby portabella mushrooms after I cooked them down a bit in some butter. I don’t know how you get it into a pie pan! It makes quite a bit! I put it in a 2qt pyrex and it was full. We have leftovers! Yay!

  • Karissa


    Made this two nights ago, and my husband and I LOVED it!! This will definitely be a repeat at our dinner table.

  • Liza


    I found this on Pinterest the other day and I made it last night. I was too lazy to chop an onion, so I threw in onion powder instead and I used Mrs. Dash’s Italian Seasoning – was great. The only one who didn’t like it was my picky daughter, but I’ll fix that eventually. 😉 As well, I linked it to my best friend last night, and I showed up at her house this afternoon for a visit, and they were having it as well! She just used what she had on hand and used canned vegetables as she didn’t have any frozen vegetables in the freezer and she added a bit of garlic salt — she also boiled her chicken and I baked mine. We ended up staying and eating and it actually fed 10 people and it tasted just as good as mine! We came home and left more of our leftovers and I thought it reheated VERY nicely and tasted even better than it did the day I made it. Great recipe! Definitely writing this one down! I love the versatility of it!

  • Sylvia


    Have you ever frozen this and if you have did it taste the same?

  • jennifer


    i loved this! i usually have all the ingredients on hand, so it’s an easy last minute meal. i add a half sleeve of crushed ritz crackers in the last part of the cooking time. gives a good crunch. thanks for sharing.

    I’m making this for my friend and her partner for their supper tonight; one of them has just been diagnosed with metastatic ovarian cancer, and she’s home recuperating after surgery. I wanted something comforting and nourishing for them, before the chemo begins….and this seems to fit the bill. It’s in the oven right now, and it already looks wonderful. I did saute diced onions and shallots in olive oil, then added the frozen peas, garlic powder, salt and pepper; then I added to soup, mixed and then noodles. Thank you for sharing this!!!

  • Stephanie D


    Just wondering if you could use canned chicken for this recipe? If so, how much do you think you’d need for the recipe? Thanks!

  • Trish


    Made this tonight! Girls loved it and it is definitely a PINTEREST keeper!!!!! Next time I will be more prepared and have some Pillsbury Biscuits to go with it!!!! Thank you for a great easy meal!!!!

  • Caroline W


    This looks so good! It reminds me if an easy pot pie. I might try and add biscuits on top. Yum!

  • Jonie


    How would you go about re heating this from frozen?

  • Krista


    Looks great! Can I substitute a different soup for cream of mushroom? Family does not like that one. Thanks Chrissy!

  • Jessica Desarro


    My new years resolution is to lose 33 lbs. I can do it with this recipe (I’m part of WW and luckily this recipe is doable with the program, yay).

  • Jennifer


    That looks great, even when you are not sick. Going to add this to my list of new things to try!

    I made this tonight and it is delicious!! I omitted the onions because I’m not a big onion person, but added some onion powder and yum! It reminds me of something my grandma would make when I was feeling under the weather, so it is for sure comfort food! 😀 I froze the leftovers and am excited to be able to have this without much work since I’m not feeling well.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  • Haley W.


    This has been one of my husbands favorite recipes for years… we put some shredded cheddar on top though;)
