It’s hard to find a more classic casserole recipe than this one, which combines white meat chicken, egg noodles, peas, and cheddar cheese under a golden breadcrumb crust. This chicken and noodle casserole has all the elements of your favorite homestyle soup, sprinkled with cheese and baked until bubbly and browned. What could be more comforting than that?

Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot. Stir the chicken mixture. Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle the chicken mixture with the bread crumb mixture.
Bake for 10 minutes or until the bread crumb mixture is golden brown.
My finicky grandkids loved this.
Made this the first time for my brother and my "I don't like that" grandchildren# They loved it just as it was#
Today I made it for my adult friends with just a few adjustments to please a more expanded pallet#
Increased noodles to 5 cups, used one can of Campbell's "Cream of Chicken" and one can of Campbell's "Cream of mushroom" soups, and increased the milk to 1 1/2 cups to make it more creamy# I added 1 cup of fresh sliced mushrooms# Left the peas to the original amount and added 2 large pre cooked chicken breasts =1 large breast split, cut to nice size pieces. Baked at 350 for 45 minutes, stirred the casserole, than topped with 2 cups of finely crumbled baked/sea salted potato chips. Baked 15 minutes more until nice and bubbling, took it out and served. The 4 quart casserole was finished off - silly me, I thought I made enough for left overs.
Thank you Campbell's for this great recipe.
I tried it last week and my entire family loved it. I surely will make it again.
Chicken Noodle Casserole
Have made this for years. It's one of my go to recipes.
Made just as written
Made just as written and I enjoyed it a lot, it was even better the next day for lunch... Only thing I might would change next time is use more bread crumbs.... For some different flavoring you could always changed the veggies to whatever you might light... But this was quick and easy.
This was so easy....and easily tweeked....first time I made it with the crumbs and butter.....it will happen every time now. =) Everybody was either starved or it was that good but it disappeared and plates where emptied
