Chick ‘N Pea Noodle Casserole

Posted on
If you already have some cooked chicken on hand, this is a quickie!*
This makes for a great ‘blocker’ meal. By that, I’m referring to freezing ‘blocks’ of this for a future meal. You can see how I do this with the FoodSaver vacuum sealer– I posted about it in the category of “Gadgets I Like”.

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 2-3 cups cooked/cubed chicken meat
  • 8-12 oz. medium width egg noodles, cook according to directions on the package.
  • 1 of 10.75 oz. can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 of 10.75 oz. can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup thick sour cream
  • 1-2 cups frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup crumbled Ritz crackers (saltines may also work)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

 

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Cut and cube chicken meat (I like to use what’s left of a rotisserie chicken.)
  2. Boil egg noodles, according to directions. Drain.
  3. While egg noodles are cooking, combine the two soups and sour cream; season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. When noodles are cooked and drained, add the frozen peas, the blended soup mixture and stir gently.
  5. Put into sprayed 9×13-inch baking dish.
  6. Pour melted butter over crumbled crackers and stir to coat.
  7. Sprinkle the cracker mixture on top of the casserole and bake for about 45 minutes or until hot/bubbly and golden brown on top.
  8. Serve as is OR with grated cheese, or sour cream. I have one who likes a dab of ketchup on this.

 

* You could easily ‘do your own thing’ with this casserole by adding celery, onion, mushrooms, water chestnuts for extra ‘crunchiness’, different vegetables, etc.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
