It has a creamy texture combined with the light firmness of egg noodles and chicken. Chicken noodle casserole is an easy-to-make comfort food for many people.

There are various methods and recipes for making chicken noodle casserole. A stovetop version uses many of the same ingredients as a regular ovenproof dish but is quicker to prepare. Additionally, an older version, cooked from scratch, is also widely available, especially in the southern United States.

The quickest versions of these chicken noodle casseroles are usually made with condensed cream of chicken soup or mushroom soup, cooked egg noodles, cooked chicken, milk, and grated Parmesan cheese. Salt, pepper and parsley can be added to taste. Add-ons like peas, celery, onions, or mushrooms are also included in many chicken noodle casserole versions. The mixture is heated on the stove over medium heat until hot or poured into a saucepan and baked in an oven, usually at 350° Fahrenheit (180° Celsius) for about 20 minutes.

Old-fashioned versions of this hot pot call for many of the same ingredients, including egg noodles, cooked chicken, Parmesan cheese, seasonings, and add-ons. The recipe varies when it comes to cream sauce. Instead of using canned soup, the sauce is usually made by combining chicken broth with milk and a roux made from butter and flour. After the sauce is ready, it is mixed with the other ingredients and placed in a saucepan for baking in the oven.

A crunchy topping is usually placed on top of the baked casserole before being placed in the oven. This topping could be parmesan or breadcrumbs. After cooking, the chicken noodle casserole is removed from the oven and allowed to cool for a few minutes. Sometimes chicken noodle casserole is served on a bed of mashed potatoes, white rice, or bread stuffing. These dishes can also be served as a side dish with casserole.
