Macaroni Chicken Casserole

I needed something simple to fix for lunch yesterday. It needed to be something that I could put together fairly quickly and walk away from. I thought I had a plan but discovered I didn't have a few of the ingredients I needed. I looked at the recipe I had planned for, looked at the ingredients I had on hand and came up with this instead.

3 cups dry macaroni, cooked and drained
2 12.5 ounce cans chunk chicken breast, undrained
2 16 oz.jars classic alfredo sauce
1 onion finely chopped
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients and bake at 350F for one hour.

I have no pictures of the finished product because the hungry hoard descended upon it and quickly devoured it. Or something like that.

In other words - the kids loved it.

  1. Yum! That sounds delish, I am going to have to try it :)

  3. Umm! That sounds so deliciously good! I'm saving this to make next week.

  4. Mmmm, this sounds good. I like the combination of the chicken with the alfredo sauce. It's something I'm going to try.

  5. I would have never thought to put all that together but it does sound yummy!

  6. This sounds quite yummy. What a great pantry meal! This is my first visit. I found you through Tuesdays at the Table.

  7. That sounds quick and easy! I made something similar with regular pasta sauce, but I never thought of substituting with alfredo! I'm going to have to to remember to pick some up next time I'm at the grocery store and give this a try.

  8. Sounds like a perfectly yummy plan B. Sometimes those are the best, aren't they? I'll have to make it myself.
