I am not sure why this is called “Amish Chicken Casserole”.  Maybe this recipe is actually an Amish one – I am not sure.  I actually don’t know where I got this recipe from, but I have had it for at least 10 years.  I modified it a little to suit my calorie and vegetable needs. 🙂

Michael and I absolutely love this casserole – it always turns out delicious.

1) Cook noodles until al dente.  Drain.

2) In a really, really big bowl, microwave frozen broccoli for 20 minutes, until tender.

3) Using the bowl you cooked the broccoli in, mix the broccoli, noodles, and chicken.

4) In a small pot, melt the butter.  Mix the flour in and cook for a minute or two.  Add the milk and chicken broth, and stir until smooth.  It will start out lumpy from the roux, but with enough time and stirring, it will become a lovely sauce.  Add the seasonings and the mushrooms.  Stir until smooth and thick.

5) Grease a 13 x 9 pan.  Put the mixture into the pan, and top with the grated parmesan cheese.   Cover and bake for 30 minutes.  Uncover and bake for another 15 minutes until top is light brown.  Enjoy!

Michael likes to eat his with a fork and knife, almost like it’s a lasagna:

Two things about this picture above: 1) He owns other shirts.  I swear he does.  2) We didn’t clear the table.  See the purple pencil next to Michael’s paper plate?  That’s how we really eat! 🙂  Anyway, back to the important stuff – the food.  I like to eat mine all spread out on my plate, with just a fork. 

Sorry about the blurriness.  I am not very good at the picture taking process.  Also, as an FYI – the baby eschewed my homemade Amish noodle casserole in favor of Ramen noodles with butter.  The irony is not lost on me.
