The Ultimate Chicken and Noodle Casserole
If you don't have any cooked chicken on hand, pick some up at the supermarket. Look for refrigerated or frozen chopped, cooked chicken or buy a deli-roasted chicken. It will yield 1-1/2 to 2 cups of boneless chopped meat. If you like, you can cook your own. Place 1-1/4 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breasts and 2 cups water in a large skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 12 to 14 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees). Drain well. Chop chicken. 1-1/4 pounds of boneless breasts with give you about 3 cups cubed cooked chicken.
