Tasty Tuesday Chicken Noodle Casserole!

Diva Donna sent me this recipe not long ago. I haven't made it yet, but it's on the menu for tonight. It looks just plain good!

My hubs bought a ton of cans of chicken from Costco. So I decided to put  some to good use.  I always use the large wide noodles. Because that's the way I like them. *Winks* 

Tasty Chicken Noodle Casserole (Paula Deen)

2 cups cooked or canned chicken 4 cups egg noodles, cooked and drained (approximately 2 cups uncooked)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x13 inch baking dish. In a large, tall-sided saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the onion, sauté until near translucent. Stirring frequently, add garlic and red pepper flakes, cook for two minutes more. Stir in the flour and cook until the flour is absorbed. Slowly add the milk and 2 cups of cheese. Reserve 1 cup of cheese for casserole topping. Once the cheese is melted add salt and pepper to taste. Combine chicken, sour cream and noodles into cheese mixture. Stir until the noodles are coated with mixture. Pour mixture into a prepared baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese. Bake the casserole for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.


  1. I need to stop getting on here when I'm hungry. I always end up hungrier when there are recipes and hunks about!

  2. Hunks...food...they're in the same category of needs. ;)

  3. I can't believe it!! Great minds think alike. Or I need comfort food tonight. This was what I was making tonight too!! And that hunk has a woody in his pants. But what is that toilet seat and that equipment going to be used for in the background? Maybe he's Christian Grey and this is his room of pain.

  4. LOL! I hope not! He doesn't strike me as the sadistic type.

  5. What's with the arm bands? It's puzzling to me. I wouldn't want to check out the weird equipment. But I'd like to handle his.

  6. Boy does that look edible! But I agree with everyone else - what the heck is in the background?

  7. Who knows? S&M exercise machines maybe???

    I am happy to report that the cheesy chicken was a big hit. The only reason we had any left over was because Mike's friend who was here for dinner is a vegetarian!
