Easy Chicken Noodle Casserole

Leftovers are the bane of a lot of cooks, but they shouldn’t be. Some pretty awesome – and easy – dinners can be made from leftovers. Often left forgotten in the refrigerator, they can be transformed into something pretty tasty – with minimal effort – the next day.

Chicken is one of those foods that lends itselt to leftovers. For example, you make things such as quesadilllas, wraps, salads and pot pies with leftover chicken.

My favorite is a casserole, one that you can make on the stovetop, just like the following, which we had for supper the other night.

Easy Chicken Noodle Casserole
3 cups cooked chicken, cut up
1 pint sliced carrots with juice
1 cup frozen peas
1 small onion, diced
1 cup leftover chicken gravy
Salt and pepper to taste
8 ounces egg noodles
Saute onion in olive oil while cooking pasta according to package instructions. Add chicken, vegetables and gravy. Cook for 10 minutes. If you need to thicken, mix some cornstarch with water and add to pan.
Once mixtures thickens, serve over cooked pasta.
Note: You also could use other vegetables such as corn.

  1. This is what I do with my Chicken after I get done making a batch of Knoephle soup. I like making my own chicken stock, and you can’t just throw out a whole chicken. It freezes great. When you want to eat some all you have to do is cook some noodles and microwave the sauce.
