Creamy Chicken Casserole

Added by: on Nov 19th, 2012
This casserole is perfect for chicken or turkey! I've been testing recipes that would work for Thanksgiving leftovers and this one hit a home run! Creamy, rich with cheesy pasta. It's easy to make and will take leftover turkey to a new level with a little cranberry sauce on the side.

Directions:

1

Heat oven to 400° F.

2

Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring 1 to 2 minutes until mixture is golden

3

Slowly whisk in the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook, whisking often, until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.

4

Remove from heat and whisk in the sour cream, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

5

While sauce is cooling, cook noodles according to the package directions; drain and return them to the pot.

6

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave-safe bowl.

7

Add the milk mixture, chicken and thyme to the noodles and toss to combine.

8

Transfer to a 9-by-13-inch or some other 3-quart baking dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and drizzle with the melted butter.

9

Bake until the bread crumbs are golden and casserole is bubbling, 8 to 10 minutes

10

Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Cooks' note:
Make sure to let the casserole rest for 5 to 10 minutes so that all ingredients come together.
