The inspiration for this casserole comes from one of my signature dishes. Usually I take a chicken breast stuff it with mozzarella cheese then coat them with the cream cheese mixture and then finally the bread crumbs. It’s then served on a bed of egg noodles. I figured I could take the same concept just cook everything and mix it so all you have to do is freeze it and then bake it till it’s warm again. I have to say it turned out pretty good. I would just add some additional milk if you are gonna freeze it then listed below so it will be more saucy and less dry

Here’s how it looks if you do the stuffed chicken:

16 ounce package egg noodles
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 pounds chicken tenders, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup milk (You may need some additional milk to loosen it up)
2 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided into thirds
1 cup bread crumbs, divided into thirds
additional seasoning if desired
parsley flakes to garnish

Cook egg noodles according to package directions.

Meanwhile heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Remove to a plate.

Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add milk, beating until incorporated. Blend in garlic powder and red pepper flakes.

Stir chicken and cooked noodles into cream cheese mixture.

If using 3 small square cake pans-
Divide noodle mixture evenly among 3 pans. Top each one with 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, sprinkle any additional seasoning, then top with 1/3 cup bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is hot.

If freezing – Defrost then bake or you can bake frozen just add additional time for casserole to cook all the way.

If using a 13”x9” baking dish-
Pour all of the noodle mixture in the baking dish then top with mozzarella cheese. Follow by sprinkling any additional seasoning, then top with bread crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is hot.
