Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

the sauce didn't thicken enough other than that it was good

tried the chunky chicken noodle casserole, I used 16 oz bag of wide noodles little more chicken and it was great, got this resipe on file

This was a very tasty dish just as it's written, but I'll also add in some frozen peas & carrots the next time I make it. I love that this recipe doesn't call for a canned soup. I used low sodium chicken broth, so I was (somewhat) able to cut down on the amount of sodium in this dish. All in all, this is a tasty dish - and very E-Z to prepare.

This is my go to recipe. Everyone likes it. I sometime omit the mushrooms and add a vegetable. Eiter way it's a hit.

I used rotisserie chicken that I had leftover. I also stirred Parmesan shavings into my white sauce rather than sprinkle on the top. Yummy!

This was a wonderful meal and we had no leftovers after it was done. I will definitely be making this again.

This comment is in response to Spaghetti Kid. Homemade canned chicken is just that. It is chicken that has been canned at home. The process is different but I'm sure you have heard of people canning vegetables, well they may can chicken, tomato sauce and lots of other tasty foods for use at a later time. Most people who live in town don't have time for this but there are a lot of food purests who still do. The Amish included.

Just made this, my daughter is calling it noodle pot pie I added onions when I cooked the butter. Will be making again soon it was quick and easy!

I can my chicken by using boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenders when they are on sale. I cut these into chunks, pack them in pint jars with salt and fill with water. Then put flat piece and ring on jar and process in the pressure cooker. Hope this helps.

This is a great basic recipe that can be made as written, or modified. I am making it tonight with items in my pantry and freezer. Using whole wheat noodles, omitting the mushrooms, but added a bag of California blend frozen vegetables. (cauliflower, carrots, and broccoli) Also added some chopped onion for additional flavor.Too cold to venture to the store, so using what is on hand for a hot hearty meal in frigid winter weather.

This was very yummy!! When I made it, I used a 12oz bag of edd noodles because that is how they were packaged. It was alittle dry but all it takes for that is either alittle more milk or chicken broth. I also omitted the mushrooms. Definately would make it again!

This was really delicious. I used another type of noodle because that is what I had on hand. I also used homemade canned chicken. I will definitely be making this again.

How do you make homemade canned chicken? Interesting !

I love this place for getting the nutritional value... Just copy and paste the ingredients. Shaylee, this recipe has 17.9 carbs with 6 servings

Can Reames frozen noodles be used or does it have to be the regular pasta noodles.?

I used Reames frozen noodles with good results--seems more like homemade.

What do you mean by "seasoned salt"? Accent or Lawry's?

Accent is usually listed as a tenderize, even though it is salty. Lawry's is a seasoned salt. When you use Lawry's, you can see bits and flecks of other seasonings in it. When in doubt, always read your labels.

Shaylee, just type recipe calculator into your search bar and then cut and paste the ingredients into the space provided on the calculator. It will give you all the nutritional information.

I ask for carbs. in recipes back in Feb. I still don't have them. Can you please help? Thank you again..... Nancy T.

Can this casserole be frozen & baked at a later time?

I really need the carbs. per serving on all your recipes because my 8 year old granddaughter has type 1 diabetes and when shes here...I have to have this info. Thank you for this.... Nancy T.
