Why are casseroles the best? Something about just throwing everything together in one big dish and cooking it in the oven makes me so happy. This chicken and noodle casserole is so fabulous. It has chicken. It has veggies. It has pasta. And it’s all mixed together with the creamiest yummiest sauce. Don’t forget the crushed cracker topping!! YUM.

I love to make this for when we have company over for dinner. It also makes a great dish to bring to a family in need of dinner one night. This casserole is the best comfort food. And it feeds a ton! It pretty much checks every box. Did I mention it also makes amazing leftovers? This recipe wins at life. You’ve got to try it and let me know how you love it!

How to Make Creamy Chicken Noodle Casserole

Start this recipe by cooking your chicken in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Check to see if it’s done when it’s no longer pink in the middle. You could also use leftover chicken from other recipes or shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken. I love buying those at the grocery store or Costco and using the chicken in recipes during the week. Life hack! But cooking your own chicken beforehand works just as great.

Cook your egg noodles as directed on the package and drain them. Cut the chicken into small pieces and mix it in a bowl with the cooked pasta noodles. Combine the soups, sour cream, carrots, and broccoli in a separate bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Gently combine the two mixtures of chicken and pasta with the soup and veggies. Pour it all into a 2 quart baking dish and set aside. Mix together the crushed crackers and melted butter. Don’t mind me…just drooling over here. I’m a sucker for a crumble topping on anything. Spread the crackers onto the top of the casserole before putting into the oven. Bake for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven. When it’s slightly brown on top, it’s ready to be devoured!
