A cheerful quick and easy casserole of chicken, egg noodles, seasonings and bright vegetables!


3-4 servings


2 1/2 cups of egg noodles (cook according to package instructions)
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup diced carrots
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup diced onion
1/2 cup frozen or canned corn
1 1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup flour
1 cup cooked cubed chicken
salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded cheddar cheese


1. In saucepan, heat water to boiling. Add carrots, garlic, onion, and corn. Return to a boil and cook until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

2. Whisk together milk and flour, to remove lumps. Add to boiled vegetables and return to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Add cooked chicken and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Tammy's Review: 

I created this casserole as a quick and easy use for leftover chicken and/or egg noodles. The carrots and corn, along with the cheese, add bright colors to this dish and make it feel like a little "sunshine" in your meal. ;) The simple seasonings of garlic, onion, salt, and pepper give a great flavor and make this one of our favorite casseroles. My rating: 10/10.


Quick, easy, pretty, and tasty! Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy


Barry really loves creamy, blandish, casserole's and he gave me the thumbs up for this one. I made it tonight. It was very simple.

Good Friday night recipe!


This one earned rave reviews from my 2 little ones, so it will be a regular now at our house. Yummy and delicious!


We really liked this easy to fix casserole. I added spices as another review said it was bland. I add more garlic powder, thyme, celery salt. It tasted wonderful ,like a cross between chicken pot pie and chicken and dummplings.YUM! I also used frozen mixed vegetables(veg-all type). Super easy and a great way to use up leftover chicken. I will be making this again.
