Chicken Noodle CasseroleChicken Noodle Casserole is the perfect comfort food on a cold day. This casserole is a creamy noodle confection with a buttery, crunchy topping.

We enjoy it year round and you can easily spruce it up or down! I’m not gonna lie, I like to double the amount of crackers I use for some serious crunch factor.

Chicken Noodle Casserole makes a nice dish for a potluck. You can add veggies to make it a more complete meal. Use fat-free or light soups and sour cream to make it healthier. The casserole will taste just as good.

Also, this recipes makes a tasty freezer meal!

FREEZER MEAL INSTRUCTIONS: Double the Chicken Noodle Casserole recipe and put the second meal in a freezable casserole dish such as Glad Ovenware.

Allow the meal to cool before sealing the lid. When you are ready to serve the dish, thaw the meal in the refrigerator. Cook for 30 minutes on 350º or until baked all the way through. Just a note, fresh mushrooms do not freeze well.
