Chicken Noodle Soup Casserole

We eat a lot of soup. Chicken Noodle soup is in the rotation. We love it! When I found this recipe I was skeptical. It would probably be dry and definitely not nearly as good as soup. I couldn't have been more wrong. This is creamy, not dry at all. It has all of the flavor of chicken noodle soup in a surprisingly better way. So every time I think I want chicken noodle soup this is what I'll be making and the next time you're thinking of making soup, make this instead!

Recipe Source: Cooking.com

3 Chicken Breasts, cubed
2/3 cup Onion, chopped
3 Garlic Clove, minced
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1-14.5 oz Chicken Broth
1 1/2 cups Carrots, chopped
3 Celery Ribs, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour
3/4 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
1 1/2 cups Milk
1 1/4 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
2 1/2 cups Rotini, cooked

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet heat your olive oil, saute onion and garlic until tender. Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add in the broth, carrots, celery and thyme and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down, cover, and simmer for about 12 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour, salt, and pepper and mix until smooth. Slowly add milk and bring to a boil. Cook and stir constantly for about 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and add in the cheese and stir until melted. Pour over the chicken mixture, add in the noodles and mix well.

3. Pour into a 9x13 pan, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
