*** I double posted today so scroll down after reading this one. =)***
This casserole is our ALL TIME FAVORITE in our house. When I tell everyone we are having the "muenster cheese, chicken dish" Hubby gets really happy.
Its hearty and warm and served with warm biscuits.
After eating this meal, you know your belly is full, the kids are well fed and everyone is happy.
You can't tell by the picture but this dish just came out of the oven and was still bubbling....
1 onion chopped
2 tbs butter
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup milk
salt and pepper
egg noodles or any other type pasta
5 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 package broccoli florets
Lots of sliced muenster cheese.
Preheat oven to 400. Saute onion in butter over medium heat for 3 minutes. Mix in flour. Gradually stir in broth, combining well.
Then gradually add milk. Cook, stirring continually, until thickened. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
Boil the pasta and drain well. Spread noodles in casserole dish/ Place chicken and broccoli over noodles. Pour sauce over everything. Sprinkle cheese on top and cook for 20 minutes or until cheese melts.
I double the recipe to feed my crew. I also use sliced cheese and layer the bottom AND top for more cheesy goodness. I don't follow the recipe to a t and it still comes out great. I season the meat before I cook it. and use a lot of salt and pepper. Im all about FLAVOR!!
Let me know how you like it!!!
