Recipe Thursday - Chicken Noodle Casserole

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you!I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!

This week's Recipe:
The 2nd night that we were home from the hospital after having JJ, my good friend, Cheryl brought over this casserole for dinner. After the first bite, Joey and I both knew this was destined to be our go-to casserole. It was tasty and comforting and just RIGHT! I've made it so many times now that I basically don't even have to think about what I am doing. I've also changed it quite a bit to fit the tastes of my family and I think I can safely claim it as my own. This is my idea of A PERFECT CASSEROLE!

Chicken Noodle Casserole
by DeDe Smith

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
14-16 oz Pasta (We love using bow-tie pasta, but you can use whatever you want)
Grated Cheese
Season Salt
A can of corn
1 packet of chicken gravy mix
1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
1/2 cup milk

Cook your chicken. I like to cook my chicken in the oven with a can of cream of chicken soup, salt, and Mrs. Dash. But cook it however you like to do. After its completely cooked, cut up the chicken into strips or cubes. I like to cut up my chicken in the pan that I cooked it in - then I can mix the cream of chicken soup right into the chicken for more flavor. It also thickens up the sauce later on in the casserole too.
Cook your pasta according to the package directions. Immediately add pasta to your casserole dish and sprinkle with grated cheese. It should be hot enough to melt the cheese. Mix it well so that the pasta is well covered with melted cheese. Sprinkle generously with Season Salt. Add the Chicken and the corn and mix well.
On the stovetop, bring chicken broth, milk, and gravy mix to a boil and then pour over the casserole.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes!
