We loved this. We didn't have any fresh thyme so used dried but that's all we changed. We will definitely make again. The recipe wasn't clear whether to precook the noodles or not so we read a review that said not to. The noodles were tender and perfectly cooked. Thanks for a real winner. Read More

The topping was a disaster. Too many bread crumbs and not enough butter. I recommend leaving off the topping altogether. Read More

We were pleased with this dish! I didn't have chicken already cooked so I cut up my raw chicken and started cooking that in the oil first. I seasoned it with Kickin' Chicken. Then I added the veggies. No mushrooms -- I didn't have any and (sadly) I'm the only person in our house who likes them. When I put in dried thyme (didn't have fresh) I added a little more Kickin' Chicken. Used low sodium chicken broth. I boiled it a bit longer than the recipe says because I wanted to make sure the carrots would be tender. I grated fresh Pecornio Romano (didn't have Parmesan) and ended up with a little more than 1/2 cup. Seasoned the panko with a small amount of Kickin' Chicken. I was really pleased with the flavor and consistency. I was worried about the flavor but it turned out really good. I don't know if it was the Kickin' Chicken but I think the Pecorino Romano really added a lot! Normally when making something like this to be thickened with flour I would have added it while sautéing the veggies. But I followed the recipe and it turned out fine. We're very pleased with how this turned out. It was easy I had almost everything on hand (made adjustments for fresh thyme and Parmesan) and tasted good. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was exactly what it says it is...Chicken Noodle Casserole. And it was really good! Nothing fancy nothing exotic and nothing difficult. With the current cold snap it was the comfort food we longed for. The instructions were clear and straightforward. The only 'moment' I had was when I added the cream cheese a product I haven't used much. Looked pretty bad at first but I pressed on and followed the directions and it came out creamy smooth and delicious. It took me extra time as I had to cook up some breasts but ideal if you have some left-overs. I look forward to making it next time (and there will be a next time) with some left-over grilled chicken that smoky carmelization would really drive it over the top! And I know what I'll be doing with the leftover Thanksgiving Turkey in my near future. I think the best complement I can pay is that I cut this to four servings for the two of us with the expectation of leftovers for lunch tomorrow but we ate the whole thing! Read More

Really simple. I followed the recipe but added a 10oz can of cream of mushroom soup without the extra milk of course. The I added basil extra thyme and used a bit of corn starch to thicken it up in the pan before the baking dish. The kids loved it! Read More

I pretty much followed the recipe. I boiled the chicken breast in the 32oz of chicken broth which I made because I didn't have chicken broth. 4 cups of water with two bouillon cubes (Knorr Caldo de Tomate). Didn't have thyme so I used fresh cilantro and parsley. Used regular cream cheese. Used the dutch oven for everything. Stove to oven is the best. Noodles don't need to be precooked. I'm definitely saving this to my box. Oh I did use 2 tbls of flour. The panko crumbs probably didn't need salt because of the butter. Enjoy!!!! Read More

I made this for dinner tonight. Everyone loved it. It was fairly easy to prepare and tasted wonderfully. I had to cook a couple of chicken breasts so I seasoned them with paprika garlic powder dried thyme and pepper. I roasted them for about 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven turning them halfway through. I wasn't going to use 8 ounces of cream cheese but I decided to follow the directions as written. I did not use mushrooms because my husband does not like them so I added broccoli before placing the dish in the oven. I will prepare this again. Read More

I made this tonight after coming in from a chilly first bike ride of the year. I didn't have mushrooms or fresh thyme. Just left the mushrooms out and used 1/4 tsp of dried thyme. My family loved it. Daughter 6 cleared her plate and said the recipe deserved 5 stars. My son 4 liked the creamy noodles best. I thought the celery was too strong and I'd leave them off next time. Absolutely wonderful after being so cold outside. Read More
