Creamy Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole
This is my new favorite Creamy Cheesy Chicken Noodle Casserole. It is made with noodles, chicken, mushrooms, a homemade cream sauce and topped with cheese then baked in the oven and it is so delicious.
Cook and drain the noodles.
In a large skillet over
medium heat, melt the butter.
Add the flour and whisk
quickly to combine.
Whisking constantly, cook
until a light brown.
Gradually add the chicken broth and
Half & Half whisking constantly
until hot, bubbly, smooth and creamy.
Add the salt and pepper then stir.
Add the mushrooms then stir.
Continue to cook until sauce
thickens, slightly, then
remove from the heat.
Spray a 3-quart casserole baking
dish with cooking oil.
Add the chicken to the noodles.
Pour the sauce on top
and toss to combine.
Pour into the prepared casserole dish.
I topped mine with more pepper
but this is optional.
Sprinkle the top evenly with the cheese.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven,
uncovered, for 30 minutes. Turn
on the broiler and broil until the
cheese turns brown.

I always look for different ways to serve chicken to the kids and this looks nice and easy. Yum.
This was a recipe from the Amish that I completely changed and I am so glad I did. It was so good, even the next day. You have to give this one a try. Thank you Carla!
Well, I have chicken and noodles with me, so I might give it a go, perhaps try making a half batch.
That would be smart as it did make a lot.
Thank you for reblogging this delicious recipe. ❤️
Thank you for reblogging my recipe. 💕
Casseroles with noodles are always delicious, especially if served in the vintage Corning Ware!
What an eye Dorothy! My husband broke my 4 quart and I am still stewing over that. I bought a new 4 qt and the lid doesn’t fit tight and it’s just not the same. 😩
Looks so good! I’m hungry now!
Thank you Betty, I love casseroles if you haven’t noticed. Lol
Looks great, Diane! Perfect for these wintery evenings.
Thank you Ab!
Love a good roux..this one is so golden!
Thank you Laurel!
Ooo thank you! We have snow in the forecast this weekend and this will be PERFECT!
Oh yes this is the perfect winter comfort food. You’re welcome!
Yesssss – all in 🙂
Hi, Diane. I realized I haven’t seen your posts on my feed lately. When I found this post today, it asked me if I wanted to follow you. Go figure! I don’t know how I got dropped, but I’ve re-followed. I hope you and your family got through the holidays and January so far unscathed by the pandemic. I’m well. Glad to reconnect with you!
Hi Janet! I think WP deleted a bunch of my followers. I usually get about 25 comments a day and now I only get that every 3-4 days. I’m so glad you found me again! We had a rough Christmas, I had to cancel it, but my family made it through. So far, knock on wood, my husband and I haven’t been sick. I hope you are doing well and had a great Christmas.
Comfort food, for sure. It looks delicious, Diane.
Thank you, I need to stop making casseroles because we eat them entirely. Lol
I will call this: Diane’s Triple C Dish!! This must be an absolute winner on any table and we will try this for sure!
We really loved this one! It was just as good as leftovers too. Thank you and enjoy!
Hi, thanks so much for following my blog. Your blog is amazing too and so I will follow yours too. Have a great day. Betty

The leftovers are even better! I’m so happy you liked it Jinjer, thank you for telling me.
Right???? I totally had it for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner yesterday. Can’t stop.

Thank you dear friend!
I repeatedly aim my fork at the computer screen but I’ve yet to grab a forkful of that deliciousness! 🙂
Hahaha you crack me up! Thank you Tierney!
Mmmm! What’s not to love about a creamy chicken & mushroom casserole?
