Delicious Chicken Noodle Casserole
There are a few different steps to this Delicious Chicken Noodle Casserole, but that is why it is called delicious. Some times real goodness takes a bit of time, and this recipe is a home run winner. Try it soon, and it will certainly become a favorite with you and your family. (You may even find yourself making it every week, so be sure to teach your up and coming cooks how to make this one!) This recipe is entirely home made, and comes together with great noodles, lots of good veggies and plenty of chicken. It is a well balanced blend of carbohydrates, protein, and some fats, a perfect combination.
This recipe begins by cooking the onions and red peppers. Red peppers are a great veggie to cook with. They add a wonderful splash of color as well as terrific sweetness. They look great, and encourage people to gobble up whatever meal they are included in. As well, peppers offer plenty of good nutrition, anti-oxidants, and vitamins and minerals. Onions are another veggie that we use a lot of in many dishes, but often forget about for their nutritional contribution. Onions are members of the Allium family, which includes garlic, leeks and shallots. They provide tremendous amounts of nutrition, enough that they are recommended for daily consumption in order to continue to support our good health.
Of course do not overlook the chicken. It is a lean meat, and loaded with protein. Concerns over the levels of cholesterol in the chicken have been allayed, so eat it up. Finally noodles make a great addition to this dish. Be sure to not over cook the noodles. White flour based foods are simple carbohydrates that can cause blood sugar spikes. To avoid the spike, cook the noodles only until they are just el dente, that is, barely softened to the bite. This is a fabulous recipe, full of good nutrition, and made from scratch, ensuring great flavor. It is not difficult, but does take a few steps to get it right. And every step is worth it. Try it soon.
