What could you use instead of sour cream? Extra can of soup ?
I made this recipe and it was great. The only thing I did different was the bread crumbs. I melted half a stick of butter to the crumbs with half a cup of shredded cheese and it was fabulous. I’m a retired chef from a private school and the children of all ages love this. It’s really hard to keep kids happy for lunch but this recipe did the trick. Teachers and staff were bring casserole dishes in for me to make for their family’s and friends. Wasn’t allowed to do it for them. But, early one morning they came in and I gave them a lesson on how to make it. Funny, me teaching them something for a change.
This looks amazing – I’m putting it on my dinner menu for this week 🙂
Hope you enjoy it Kathleen!
How do you think this would be with a mashed potato or stuffing topping?
I think it might be a little heavy with another starch like potatoes or stuffing on top of the noodles, but if that sounds ok to you, it would work!
Way to dry, will not make this one again!
Sounds delish! I used to love chick a la king so im going to try mushrooms, green peas and pimento for the veggies
I made this and it was a hit. I used two packages of fresh fettuccine from the refrigerated section of the grocery store and one whole rotisserie chicken. Because the pasta and chicken amounts were greater that the recipe called for, I added a third can of cream of chicken soup and extra sour cream. I took your suggestion and used the cream of chicken with herbs soup. This made a ton. Kept one pan for us and took one pan to the D-I-L who’s working on her Masters. Have to keep those grandbabies fed. B-T-W, we drive through Saint George all the time on our way to Hurricane to see my M-I-L and to the family place on Cedar Mountain and our place near Duck Creek/Dixie National Forest. Husband was born in Utah. Beautiful place. Teresa from Mobile AL.
