Recipe Ingredients for Skinny Chicken Noodle Cassarole

8 oz no yolk noodles
1 tbsp i can't believe it's not butter
1 medium onion, minced fine
3 tbsp flour (gluten free use rice flour)
1 3/4 cups fat free chicken broth
1 cup skim milk
10 oz sliced mushrooms
1 cup frozen peas
9 3/4 oz canned chicken
1 cup reduced fat cheddar
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp breadcrumbs

Recipe Directions for Skinny Chicken Noodle Cassarole

  1. Cook noodles in salted water until al dente, or slightly undercooked by 2 minutes. Set aside.

  2. Melt the butter in a large deep skillet. Add onions and cook on medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and a pinch of salt and stir well, cooking an additional 2-3 minutes on medium-low heat

  3. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly spray 9 x 12 casserole with butter flavored cooking spray.

  4. Slowly whisk in the chicken broth until well combined, increasing heat to medium and whisking well for 30 seconds, then add the milk and bring to a boil. When boiling, mushrooms and petite peas, adjust salt and pepper to taste and simmer on medium, mixing occasionally until it thickens (about 6-7 minutes). Add drained chicken, stirring another minute.

  5. Remove from heat and add 1 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar and mix well until it melts. Add the noodles to the sauce and mix well until evenly coated. Pour into casserole and top with parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Spray a little more cooking spray and top and bake for about 20 - 25 minutes. Place under the broiler a few minutes to get the crumbs crisp (careful not to burn)
