Comfort Food to the Max: Chicken and Egg Noodle Casserole

I have to be honest here you guys: I thought that by April 9th I would be done with winter comfort food. It’s spring (at least it is according to the calendar) and our thoughts are supposed to turn to all things green and light and lemony. Well, Mother Nature has forgotten where she placed her calendar my friends, because here in Alberta we were hitting record LOWS for temperature! Yes, we were SO COLD here it’s unbelievable!  There’s no way that asparagus is peeking out from the ground because I kid you not, we have 3-4 feet of snow left in our backyard. It was just -12 C here in Edmonton. We are supposed to be having melting snow and mud and all of the spring things that are exciting, but we have snow and sub-zero temps. 

Thus we are still needing some good ol’ winter comfort food and this chicken and egg noodle casserole is it.

How to Make Chicken & Egg Noodle Casserole

The retro, basic recipe for chicken and egg noodle casserole is very plain. The soup, noodles and chicken is it for the casserole part. I’ve added in some spices, garlic powder and onion powder. You can definitely taste-test the milk combination before you add it to the noodles, there is nothing uncooked so it’s completely safe to do so. You might prefer a little more garlic, or even adding some poultry seasoning! The point is, this is a good base recipe that you can tweak to your family’s liking.

Tips & Tricks for Making Creamy Chicken and Egg Noodle Casserole

  • Do not overcook the egg noodles! You want them to be al dente, just toothsome when you bite into them or you are going to have a mushy casserole at the end.
  • You can switch out the chicken soup for mushroom soup if you prefer.
  • If you make this in a larger casserole that is deeper, it will still work out but you will have to cook it longer. You need to heat this up right into the middle, nice and bubbling hot!

    Needed some of your ‘comfort food’ recipes today–have gotten in a rut with cooking–couldn’t stand one more gray day here on Cape Cod–and found your site. I am the ‘grandmother’ who used to cook these foods, but have forgotten their great tastes. Being eighty and cooking for one, I look forward to trying so many of your recipes, freezing them in smaller portions, and being ‘comforted’ all summer long (if it ever gets here)!!.

    Thanks for letting me find a brighter day.
