  • Melt butter in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Saute the chicken, onion and mushrooms until chicken is no longer pink, and juices run clear.

Pour into a 3 quart baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup of shredded cheese.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly.

This is my wife's favorite casserole dish. I lost the original recipe from the side of a rotini box. I have looked for this recipe for a while and am very glad to find it. This is a meal we will have every couple of weeks in the winter. Easy good and it is readily able to be changed to meet individual's tastes and needs. Thanks. Read More

We weren't impressed with this recipe at all. It is very bland and incredibly dry. It requires much more milk than the recipe calls for and it is definitely not cheesy enough. Luckily I put some crushed croutons on top before I baked it or there would have been no flavor at all. I wouldn't recommend this recipe. Read More

MMMM! This is my kind of comfort food. It is a little bland so definitely season it to your tastes. I sauteed a clove of garlic with the chicken which added good flavor and threw in a good dose of black pepper. I think the proportions are a bit off. I halved the amount of chicken and pasta leaving everything else the same. Even then the sauce was a bit sparse. I imagine that would need to nearly triple the soup and milk if you were making the entire recipe. This is a huge recipe even with halving it it filled my biggest casserole dish. Anyway I thought this was quite tasty and would definitely make again. Read More

My family of 5 VERY picky eaters all loved this one! I read the reveiws beforehand and made some changes and it worked out great!!! I added less peas (next time I'll just make a vegetable on the side) doubled the amount of milk added a can of Cream of Mushroom soup seasoned the chicken with seasoned salt while browning and added extra cheese. It wasn't dry or bland. It does make a lot so I put some in a small casserole dish to share with a friend!!! Read More

I took the advice of other reviewers and added a cup of chicken broth to the recipe. I also topped with bread crumbs instead of additional cheese. It wasn't dry but still turned out pretty bland and as someone else pointed out was simply too labor intensive given the outcome. 3 stars because of the modifications necessary. If I make it again I will use seasoning while browning the chicken. Read More

First of all this recipe makes a ton! We had leftovers for quite some time which is always nice:) Less cooking for me! Next time I would add more chicken...my boyfriend loves to have plenty of meat with his meals and I ended up having to add a few extra chicken breasts when we heated up the leftovers. Also i would recommend adding some seasoning to your chicken. I added some italian seasoning the 2nd time around and it was great. We will add it to our rotation. Overall good and easy. Read More

I loved it maybe next time I will use less noodles and more cheese. Better known as a "fancy" Mac and Cheese Casserole and since my hubby doesn't really like mac and cheese surprisingly he really enjoyed this meal. Read More
