Chicken Noodle Casserole Recipe, Picture, and Review.

I made a chicken noodle casserole last night using a recipe from Allrecipes. It sounded great but I am one of those people who can not leave recipes alone. I have to change at lease one ingredient. The original recipe is below and after it is the changes that I made.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
6 ounces egg noodles
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 cup crumbled buttery round crackers
1/2 cup butter

Poach chicken in a large pot of simmering water. Cook until no longer pink in center, about 12 minutes. Remove from pot and set aside. Bring chicken cooking water to a boil and cook pasta in it. Drain. Cut chicken into small pieces, and mix with noodles.
In a separate bowl, mix together mushroom soup, chicken soup, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper. Gently stir together cream soup mixture with the chicken mixture. Place in a 2 quart baking dish.
Melt butter in a small saucepan, and remove from heat. Stir in crumbled crackers. Top casserole with the buttery crackers.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 30 minutes, until heated through and browned on top.

** My Recipe Additions**

I sauteed a whole onion with 1/2 cup of celery in 1/4 cup butter until tender and added it before baking. I added veggies where I can in every recipe. To be honest I love onions and went through a 25 lb bag in two months.

I also added 1 c of Mexican blend shredded cheese.

**My Review**

Two thumbs way up! This recipe was so good! I must admit the crackers on the top were my favorite. I might trying topping other casserole with them too.My hubby loved it and has asked that we add it to the menu monthly. YUMMO!

Looks absolutely yummy. I think I'll skip the onions and celery though and add broccoli. Thanks for sharing.
