Mushroom and Chicken casserole

I had nothing planned for dinner last night so I needed to come up with something when I got home.
 I had 2 cooked chicken thighs leftover from dinner 2 days ago and some mushrooms 
that needed to be used. Here's what I came up with.
 My husband's comment was -"This is something you can make again!" The French Fried onions make the casserole especially good.

  • 1 package wide egg noodles
  • 1 - 2 cups cut up chicken
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion coarsely chopped
  • 1 large rib celery, coarsely chopped
  • 1 fresh tomato seeded and chopped
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 can cream of celery soup, undiluted (use all of it if needed)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 can French Fried Onions
  1. Cook the noodles in salted boiling water until tender.
  2. In frying pan, melt butter, (I often add a bit of oil to keep the butter from browning too much) saute' mushrooms, onions and celery until mushrooms are browned.
  3. Mix soups and mayonnaise together in a bowl.
  4. In shallow buttered casserole dish, layer noodles, mushroom mixture, chicken and sauce.
  5. Mix gently with a spatula.
  6. Sprinkle with french fried onions.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F  for about 30 minutes or until heated through.


  1. Oh my word. How come I never knew about this blog before???

  2. This looks and sounds absolutely delish....all the right ingredients in my opinion! Thanks for sharing it...yum yum. On my 'to make list'.

  3. I had to laugh at "Evangela" . . . a girl so close to my heart. (Sometimes you really become attached to your kid'a friends.)
    Thanks for the recipe, Bev!

  4. I wonder if my hubby would like this! What yummy ingredients!

  5. Tried this one last night, am eating leftovers as I type- so tasty! I have little children that were too hungry (the 18 month old) or too picky (the 4 yr old) to wait on the finished casserole so what worked well was to save off two portions of cooked noodles which I served to them with a little of the sauce. They loved it!
