Hello there! Today I’m bringing you a scrumptious, comforting casserole recipe. I should take a minute to apologize to my regular readers for being a bit behind on new recipes lately. We have been building a house, and I’ve been pretty preoccupied with planning furniture and the move. I can’t really tell you how excited I am to move in later this month!

Our new house has a bigger kitchen than I’ve ever had before. We’re currently in an apartment with a very modest kitchen. I miss my gas stove! It took me a few weeks to get used to cooking on an electric stove, but I think I’ve got the hang of it now. What kind do you have at home?

You don’t need a big kitchen or fancy stove to make this chicken noodle casserole. You just need a stovetop, oven, deep skillet, and simple baking dish. If you are on a gluten-free diet like me, you can still make this recipe! Simply sub gluten-free flour and noodles if you need to. (That’s what I do!)

This dinner takes about 20 minutes of active cooking time, and then you can pop it in the oven for another 20 minutes or so while you go on about your business. If you are in a hurry you can also canned chicken instead of chicken breast and add it during step 6 with the cheese since it will not need to cook. It also makes it faster to prep since you do not need to cut the raw chicken breast. If you ever need another recipe to use canned chicken check out this easy enchilada skillet recipe. It reheats well too for leftovers or if you want to make it ahead of time. I know this other chicken pasta casserole will also be a hit at your house. Be sure to pin it or save it on Facebook to remember it :)

2 chicken breasts – that could be anywhere from 4oz per breast to 16 oz per breast – what is recommended?

What a post! From this creamy chicken recipe, to the 20 Mexican casseroles! I loved those a lot, being a native Texan. Can’t wait to make the Taco Salad Casserole! Thanks, Andi!

Thanks so much, Debbie! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipes. I think you’ll really like the Taco Salad Casserole, but you might want to add a little more heat if you like spicy food like me! I have to make my food pretty mild for the kids, and I always have hot sauce at the table :) Have a good weekend!

Hi Andi, this recipe looks creamy and delicious. I can’t wait to try it! I notice on the chicken casserole recipe you have the peas and carrots added to the recipe at two different times. Once at step 4 when you add the chicken and once at step 6 after the cheese is melted. Which one is it? I know added them at either step will work but as early as step 4 might make the the peas and carrots mushy by the time the casserole comes out of the oven. Help!

I agree Andi with a previous person, I want to make this but not sure when to add the peas and carrots can you give us a response?

Hi, Mary! Sorry about my mistake. It works either way, but I recommend adding them with the chicken just to give the carrots time to get a little softer. I changed the recipe to add them in the earlier step, which is why it was in there twice. Thanks for letting me know!

Sorry for the mistake! I changed the recipe after I wrote it to add the peas and carrots earlier. Since the casserole doesn’t have to bake long, it gives the carrots time to get a little softer. Thanks for pointing it out. I fixed it now!
