Mom brought this recipe home with her many years ago after a visit with her sister-in-law, my Aunt Irene.

The amounts listed are purely suggestions, so don't be afraid to experiment. Isn't that how you make the best casseroles ever? =^..^=

Ingredients

some
boned cooked chicken
6 oz
(1/2 pkg.) egg noodles
10 oz
pkg. frozen broccoli pieces
large can(s)
condensed cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) soup
1/2 can(s)
of milk or water
some
shredded cheddar cheese

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mist a 13 x 9" baking dish with cooking spray. Set a large pan of water on the stove to boil.
2Tear chicken into smaller pieces and put them in the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
3When the water in the pan begins to boil, add 1/2 package of egg noodles AND the frozen broccoli. Cook 10 minutes or so, until they are done to your taste.
4Drain the noodles and broccoli, then return them to the pan. Add the large can of soup & ~1/2 can of water. Stir it all together well.
5Pour the soup & noodle mixture over the chicken.
6Top with shredded cheddar cheese. I start with about 2 cups, but I usually add more, if I have it.
7Bake the casserole at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes or so, until the cheese is melted and the casserole is bubbly.
8NOTE: When I find chicken breasts on sale, I usually buy LOTS. Then I cook & freeze some of them for quick meals, such as this one, or the Chicken Enchiladas I still need to add to this site. =^..^=
