Watch me make this recipe here:

This Easy Chicken Noodle Casserole is made with egg noodles, chicken, a cheesy, tasty filling and topped with buttered bread crumbs. You're going to love it.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350°F.

Grease or oil a 3 quart shallow baking dish. Set it aside for now.

Cook your egg noodles according to package directions.

While the noodles are cooking, melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan, over medium heat.

Whisk in all-purpose flour and let it cook for 1 minute.

Add in the milk, salt, pepper and onion powder (optional). Stir and cook until the milk mixture begins to boil and thickens. Remove it from the heat.

Stir in some cheddar cheese, mixing until it is melted.

In a mixing bowl, combine the sauce, noodles, cooked chicken and frozen peas.

Note: We like the peas just cooked with still a little crunch. If you want the peas cooked softer, add them to the noodles in the last few minutes while they are cooking.

Spread the mixture into your prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Melt another tablespoon of butter and combine it with the bread crumbs.

I make my own bread crumbs by toasting a couple pieces of bread. Let them cool and then pulse in a food processor.

Sprinkle the buttered crumbs over the top of the casserole.

Bake covered for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for 10 more minutes.

Enjoy!
