Homemade Chicken Casserole

I always enjoy hearing from readers who have tried one of The Amish Cook's recipes with success.  Sometimes a recipe will become a "family favorite" or a "must have" for family picnics.  It's just really neat to see the column become a part of people's lives.  We have a few of The Amish Cook's recipes that have become family favorites of our own, like "zucchini patties" and "oatmeal pie."  Once a reader in Logan, Ohio wrote a letter describing how Elizabeth's (the original Amish Cook) meatloaf recipe "saved her marriage."  It was something she could serve to her husband and it just really gave them a dish to look forward to and enjoy together after 30 years of marriage. Now THAT is the "high water mark." I can't imagine getting a better letter than that about the power of a recipe.  I'm also imagining I'll be getting requests for this "marriage-saving meatloaf" now.  But today, I have a more routine recipe request, this one, coincidentally, also from Logan, Ohio.  The Logan reader is requesting Lovina's homemade "chicken casserole recipe." She writes:

"My guests for the week-end are twenty-one teachers from northern China., Their home town has great noodles- I ate many when I visted there so I want to share some good noodles with them."

This is a woman who can handle some stress.  My mother gets stressed out when four people come over for dinner.  My girlfriend gets panicky when two guests are going to come to our house, so twenty-one.  I'd say our Logan reader is being a great cultural ambassador. Good luck with the recipe, let us know how it turns out!


Homemade, Hearty Chicken Casserole

8 oz. noodles (or equivalent homemade noodles) (your favorite size and shape)

½ cup margarine

1/3 cup flour

1 cup milk

2 cups chicken broth

1 small can (about 3 oz) mushrooms

2 cups cooked and cubed chicken

2 tsp. salt (or slightly less to taste)

½ tsp. pepper

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In saucepan, melt margarine, then whisk in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk and broth (separately or can be mixed); then stir in seasonings and mushrooms. Combine chicken, cooked noodles and prepared sauce.

Put in ungreased 9x13-inch baking pan and top with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 minutes.

This can be made ahead and heated when needed but will take slightly longer to heat completely through.

Optional: You can add whatever veggies your family especially likes.
