Ingredients for Chicken Noddle Casserole

Chicken Noodle Casserole is one of my favorite pantry meals. It uses mostly canned or frozen goods that I always have in my pantry at home, so I can always whip it up when I feel like there is no food in the house! I also love this recipe because the ingredients are cheap and this recipe makes a ton. To make this chicken noodle casserole, you’ll need:

  • egg noodles
  • cream of chicken soup
  • cream of mushroom soup
  • sour cream (use light sour cream for less fat)
  • milk
  • can of chicken (or use any cooked shredded chicken, or rotisserie chicken for an even yummier meal)
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • yellow onion, diced
  • frozen mixed vegetables (you could use peas and carrots like I did, or use any of your favorite mixed veggies. if they’re bigger like broccoli and cauliflower you might want to break them up into smaller pieces)
  • garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • dried thyme
  • onion powder

How to Make Chicken Noodle Casserole

I love casseroles because essentially the steps are: mix and dump. So easy, so mind-numbingly simple I don’t even have to think about it.

To make this yummy casserole, you’ll first have to cook your egg noodles. Cook them according to package directions, drain them using my favorite silicone tool, and set them aside.

Then, mix everything together in a bowl except 2/3 cup cheese and egg noodles. Once that’s all good and mixed, add in your egg noodles and fold gently so that they don’t break. Pour everything into a greased baking dish (use this one if you want this to feel a little more dressed up) and bake for about 30 minutes.

Enjoy the bubbly cheesy noodly goodness!
