  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted. Pour over chicken mixture. Add noodles; mix well.
  3. Transfer to a 3-qt. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly.

I did not follow the recipe exactly: I swaped the flour, butter, and chicken broth for cream of chicken and mushroom. Instead of white meat chicken, I traded in dark meat chicken. I layered ma...

I was happy to find a casserole recipe that didn't call for soup! This is a fresh tasting, rib stickin' dish that my family loved. While cooking the cheese sauce, I added a little dry mustard ...

I made this meal last two nights ago for dinner, I used sage instead of savory and topped with bread crumbs and it was great my family enjoyed every bit of it!!!!!

This is excellent - tastes like chicken noodle soup in a casserole. You can change the veggies around to use what you have - broccoli, spinach, leeks, whatever.
