6
6 oz egg noodles (I prefer the extra wide)

15 oz cooked chicken, diced into bite size pieces (canned chicken actually works well here or precooked rotisserie)

1 C frozen peas, thawed

1/2 C sour cream

1 can cream of chicken soup

3/4 C milk (I used 1%)

1/2 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated

1 tsp. Tastefully Simple Onion Onion or mixture of dehydrated onion, parsley, paprika, garlic (or simply 1/4 tsp each onion powder, garlic powder)

1/8 tsp crushed red pepper

1/8 tsp black pepper



OPTIONAL:

For breadcrumb topping:

1/4 C dry breadcrumbs

1 T melted butter

2 T grated parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400. 2. Cook noodles according to package but remove 2 minutes early (they will continue to cook in oven and this will prevent them from getting mushy). Drain and set aside. 3....
