"This is a second version of another member's yummy casserole. It has all the creamy and wonderful flavor of chicken cordon bleu with a little of the fat and hassle removed." — Felicia

1 (8 ounce) package
wide egg noodles
chopped cooked chicken breast
cooked ham, cubed
Swiss cheese, cubed
1 (10.75 ounce) can
reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup (such as Campbell's® Healthy Request)
light sour cream
seasoned bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
I changed this up just a touch. I used regular cream of chicken soup because that was all I had and I added some fresh ground pepper to the "sauce". I mixed the egg noodles, ham, chicken, swiss and sauce all together and poured it into a casserole dish, then topped it with the bread crumb mixture. My family loved this casserole--NO leftovers. My husband made it a point to tell me that I'm to make this again and the kids are still talking about it.
This was pretty good as a quick recipe to use up some leftovers, but the older I get, the less I can stand canned cream of anything soup. It just tasted like... soup. Salty soup. I added dijon to the soup mix... didn't help much. Would be much better if you just made your own bechamel seasoned to taste.
This is the best "pasta" casserole I've had in my life. It was so good that I called my best friend half way through dinner to tell her she needed to make this. I used shredded Swiss cheese instead of cubed, and I did not use reduced-fat soup or reduced-fat sour cream because I had some regular sour cream to use up and my local grocery store doesn't carry reduced fat cream of chicken soup (I'm not kidding). Also, I mixed everything together first (except for the topping) before putting it in the casserole dish instead of just putting it on top of the pasta, then I put the topping on. The topping is very good. It's similar to the topping I use on other casseroles, but I never thought to put Parmesan cheese in it before...duh. I will make this again for sure!
Wow! This was really good. We have three eaters here, and I award stars by the number of thumbs up. Six thumbs were counted. Unfortunately there is a five star max on this site. I used the exact ingredients called for, but I scaled them back to a two-quart casserole. I also mixed everything together except for the bread crumbs. I was a bit grouchy about getting a skillet dirty to add more seasoning to seasoned bread crumbs, but I have to say that the flavor of the topping was wonderful. This was a great cold night meal! Thanks!
This was really tasty - my family enjoyed it! However, I didn't use the low fat/fat free versions of the ingredients, I used the full-calorie items. I made half a recipe and that is enough to feed four of us. I'll make this recipe again!
Very good recipe. I did not use the low fat soup, double the bread crumb topping. I did not use bread crumbs, I used Ritz crackers crushed up in place of bread crumbs. It gets a 6 star in my book!
Thanks much for the recipe.
Tasty and easy. I may try adding a little Dijon next time to the sauce.
Made this last night. I used Campbell's cream of chicken with herbs and it gave it an amazing kick of flavor. I also used regular elbow macaroni and I did not use the sour cream. It came out delicious!!
