How to make Chicken Egg Noodle Casserole

Tips for Making Best Chicken Egg Noodle Casserole

– Be sure to cook the noodles before mixing them into the other ingredients. Cook the noodles to the packet's instructions for al dente.

– If your casserole isn't thickening, add in a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with a tablespoon of water, of some flour.

– Whole milk will give your chicken egg noodle casserole a creamier texture, but you can use reduced-fat milk and reduced-fat sour cream if you prefer.

– Sprinkle some cheese over the top of your casserole to make it even richer and tastier.

– Make this tasty casserole even heartier and healthier by adding in some chopped veggies. Broccoli, bell pepper, potatoes, carrots, peas, and mushrooms make delicious additions.

– If you don't have any cream of chicken soup on hand, cream of mushroom will taste just as delicious.

– For an ultra-rich casserole, swap out the sour cream and use cream cheese instead.

– For extra crunch, try swapping out the crackers for potato chips.
