Loaded with veggies, creamy noodles and melty cheese, this Chicken Noodle Bake is sure to please everyone at dinner time!
Last time when we visited my parents, my mom made a delicious casserole that everyone gobbled right up! I got the recipe from her, added my own flair and here we are! This is the definition of comfort food. Every bite makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. If chicken noodle soup became a casserole, this is what it looks like. We loved the leftovers the next day too!
I grew up eating homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. It was my grandma’s yummy recipe. But I just might enjoy this version even more!
I don’t know about you, but I have the hardest time getting my kids to eat veggies when I just plop a scoop of veggies on their plates. But when I incorporate those veggies into things and tell them they’re not allowed to pick them out, we have much greater success. 🙂
The flavors in this are so yummy and the veggies really add interest and substance.
This meal comes together so quickly, especially if you use rotisserie or canned chicken like I did. The whole family will go wild for this! You can add crumbled French fried onions on top, but I knew my kids would complain about that, so I opted not to. Either way, it’s so delicious!
