Chicken Noodle Casserole

ChickenNoodleCasserole

This one of our family comfort dishes. It is basically the same principle as Chicken Pot Pie but with noodles and topped with Panko bread crumbs. It is also the same as Chicken Noodle Soup, but thicker. Oops, I guess I have not added that recipe yet. This could also be Chicken and Biscuits casserole as well. Just add biscuits on top instead of the bread crumbs. You could also add some cheese topping too. My family reminded me of that tonight. Anyway, this is a variation on a versatile recipe. Give it a try.
