Chicken Noodle Casserole

This is a super simple casserole that is sure to please everyone in the family.  Use a rotisserie chicken bought from the store, leftover roasted chicken or turkey, or even use a couple cans of chicken.  You can pretty much wing this recipe and change up ingredients to suit what you have in your kitchen.  One of the things I love the most about the ingredients list for this doesn't require "cream of something" soup.  :)


Chicken Noodle Casserole

14-16 oz Pasta (I used bow-tie on this occasion)
1/2 Cup Butter
6 Tbsp Flour
4 Cups Chicken Broth
1 1/2 Cups Half & Half (or 3/4 cup milk & 3/4 cup cream)
1/2 Tsp Chicken Seasoning
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Garlic Pepper
3-4 Cups Chicken, cut up
1/2 Cup Parmesan, grated
2 Cups Frozen or 1 Can Peas 
3/4 Cup Parmesan, shredded

Cook pasta al-dente per package instructions, drain.  In large sauce pan, heat butter until melted.  Stir in flour and seasonings - stir constantly until smooth and bubbly.  Slowly add in broth, then half and half and bring to a boil, stirring constantly - boil and stir for 1 minute.  In 9x13" pan, stir together noodles, cream mixture, grated parmesan, and peas.  Top with shredded parmesan.  To serve immediately: bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes , until good and bubbly.  To freeze for another day: after topping with parmesan, do not bake.  Cover dish well and freeze.  When ready to use; completely thaw dish in refrigerator and bake according to directions.


  1. Hello, I came across this recipe when searching for some casseroles to make and freeze ahead now, to have on hand after our baby gets here. Looks delish. My only question is, I don't see in the instructions when to add the 4 cups of chicken broth? Thx!

    1. Sorry about that! I've correct the recipe!
