Sometimes you need a little food for the soul. Not the good for the body food; but the empty calories, finger licking, go back for seconds food. And this is one of those kind of dishes. Besides the protein from the chicken and cheese, there is not much else huge on nutrition value in this casserole. But boy is it good! This French Onion Chicken Noodle Casserole is a recipe my whole family enjoys, and now your family can enjoy it too.
My Mother and Father-in-Law love traditional southern food. We often get together for dinner, so when they come to my house, I try to cook the kind of cooking style they favor. This French Onion Chicken Noodle Casserole is a southern classic dish. When I made it for my very sweet Mother-In-Law, she said to be sure to tell you that it is “Delicious!” She and my Father-in-Law both loved it. And what isn’t to love? It has cheese, french onions, sour cream, and pasta… The combination of ingredients that promise good taste and comfort. It is warm and filling. The kind of dish that makes your soul happy. What we also call here, “Soul Food.”
Best of all, the ingredients are fairly inexpensive and it is simple to make. For this recipe, you can cook your own chicken or really make it easy like I did, and buy the precooked rotisserie chicken. Either way, make it tonight, and see what your family says. Be sure tell me later, because I know they will love it as much as my family does. And when they do, I told you so!
