Chicken noodle soup is a magic food, and transforming the classic dish into a casserole only amplifies its comforting effects. This 30-minute chicken dinner has all the elements of traditional chicken soup: hearty egg noodles, tender chicken, peas ‘n’ carrots — but with a creamy sauce and crunchy topping that’ll make you want seconds.
Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole
Chicken casseroles are the epitome of a quick and easy meal. You gotta love that on busy weeknights all you have to do is grab some sour cream and leftover roast chicken from the fridge, egg noodles and a can of cream of chicken soup from the pantry, and a bag of peas and carrots from the freezer. Then just “dump and bake” until the casserole is beautifully golden and bubbly.
Then there’s that crispy topping. It’s optional if you prefer your casserole creamy through-and-through, but trust us — everyone’s going to want a piece of that crackly crunch. It’s not complicated — just breadcrumbs, melted butter, and seasoning — but that toasted layer makes this casserole even more satisfying.
Our chicken noodle bake is perfectly simple and nostalgic just the way it is, but there wouldn’t be anything wrong with dressing it up by adding broccoli, bacon, or even a layer of cheese. This is already on its way to becoming one of your family’s favorite chicken casserole recipes, isn’t it?
