  • ▢2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • ▢½ cup cheddar cheese optional

instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Cook egg noodles al dente (firm) according to package directions. Drain well.
  • Combine egg noodles, chicken, soup, milk, and vegetables in 2qt casserole dish. Top with cheese if using.
  • Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle over the casserole.
  • Bake 20 minutes or until bubbly. Broil 1 minute to brown topping if needed.

notes

  • Cook pasta just until it is just al dente.
  • If you don’t have cooked chicken, chicken can be simmered in a bit of water or broth. Save the chicken water for cooking the pasta too!
  • If substituting fresh veggies, add them to the pasta water during the last few minutes until tender. This saves the step of cooking them.
  • 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese can be added to the sauce if desired.
