Chicken and Noodles for Two

I am all about casseroles that I can make in my toaster oven because there is only so much you can do on the stove top. It was 115 here in Arizona today so I am not about to turn my regular oven on!

The recipe is from Taste of Home. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, get some water boiling, and lets grab some ingredients.

You need some cottage or ricotta cheese, pimentos, paprika, egg noodles, cooked chicken, peas, green pepper, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, chopped onion and chives. The goofy looking mayo is Kewpie mayo from Japan and it is some of the best mayo I have ever had, and its cute too.

Get the noodles in the boiling water and start assembling the rest of the casserole.

Chopped green pepper.

Chopped onion or shallot. Now that you are done chopping lets assemble!

You need some tasty mayo.

You are basically just tossing everything in the bowl and getting it all mixed up! Combine everything but the peas and chicken.

I had to take this photo because the colors were so pretty.

Give everything a stir to combine, this would make a tasty dip for crackers or bread.

Drain the noodles and stir them in with the peas and cooked chicken.

Grease up a casserole dish and pour the tasty combo in it.

Sprinkle it with some paprika and get it in the oven.

After about a half an hour the casserole is ready to eat. I love when the top gets nice and crispy, yum.

This is another comfort food meal that I will definitely be making again. Its basically a variation on the classic tuna noodle casserole, so if you have a tuna hater this might be a nice alternative.


  1. You have no idea how happy I am to find a blog like this. I also married with a food-challeged man. Some nights we just have the eat separate things.

    Btw the noodle dish looks fantastic

  2. If you have an Asian market near you try there, if not you can get it on

  3. Rhonda, that looks so so so so good. I love comfort casserole dishes, especially the creamy ones. Yum!

    My friend Evan lives in Japan and he says that everyone there eats mayo on pretty much everything. Maybe that's why it's so good?

  4. this would be yummy with tuna too...
