Chicken Noodle Casserole

I had some leftover chicken from the night before and not a whole lot of time to come up with something to make. I found a recipe and tweaked it to our liking. This is my version.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

12 ounces cooked and drained egg noodles
12 Tablespoons butter
12 Tablespoons flour
2 cups chicken broth or 2 cups water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 cups milk
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 cups cooked diced chicken
1 cup Parmesan cheese plus some for the top of casserole

Preheat oven to 350*

Grease a 13x9 pan. (I didn't and I was fine)

In large skillet over low heat melt butter. Blend in flour stirring until smooth and bubbly. Gradually add chicken broth, milk, and salt & pepper. Stir constantly until sauce is thickened. Stir in chicken, parmesan cheese and the cooked noodles. Spoon the mixture into a baking dish. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese over the top. Bake for 2-25 minutes.

Serves 16. (actually it fed our family for one meal and a little bowl leftover)
