Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…Cheesy Chicken and Noodles

by Lisa on April 4, 2011




This is comfort cookin’, like your momma would have made. Which, yes, means there is processed cheese and it is a casserole. ๐Ÿ™‚


Cheesy Chicken and Noodles

  • 8 oz package wide egg noodles
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • Two 10 1/2 oz cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups grated processed American cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • One 16 oz carton cottage cheese
  • 4 chicken breast halves, cooked and shredded

Directions:ย  Cook noodles approximately 5 minutes.ย  Saute onion and mushroom in butter.ย  In large bowl, combine all ingredients, carefully folding in cooked noodles last.ย  Pour into 10×14 inch pan and sprinkle liberally with more Parmesan cheese.ย  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.ย  Freezes well.ย  Serves 8.

Now, I know there are many ways to make this a more healthful dish.ย  However, I wanted to share the recipe as is.ย  The recipe comes from a fun cookbook, “Meals Like Mom used to Make” by Karen Brown.ย  I was given this book by one of my online blog friends, ~LL at As for Me and My House blog.

Thank you for joining us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday! Don’t forget to link up your recipe post.

Yum! I made Sour Cream Noodle Bake for dinner tonight, but I like the addition of chicken in yours.
Thanks for hosting Lisa! Enjoy your week!

Chicken seemed like a very popular dish this week, and probably every week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Lisa,
I think that we are all thinking Chicken this week. Your Chicken look very good, we just love the noodles with chicken. I am sharing my Baked Nutty Pretzel Chicken. Thank you for hosting and have a great week!

This sounds such a comfort food. I made chicken as well and linked up but in a different way. Thanks for hosting!

Your yummy casserole definitely does sound like comfort food – just right for a cold rainy day like we have here in the south of England today! Thank you for sharing it, and also for hosting Tempt My Tummy Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚

My mom used to make a casserole just like this, but with cream of mushroom soup…one of my favorites!

The way you phrase what you’re making – that yes, there’s processed cheese and it’s a casserole, well, I’m still giggling over here. Too funny! A cheesy casserole sounds really good to me right now actually (though shhhh I might have to sub out the processed cheese for somethign else), as it’s still freezing cold in Chicago. Someday spring will come!


Lisa April 7, 2011 at 10:55 am

Michelle, I was giggling about that, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Janet April 5, 2011 at 10:03 am

I saw my link was double posted. Had some trouble with linky. I see that there are a couple of other posts that are doubled as well. Now mine has been removed for Passover Charoset. Should I re-submit?
