Quick, easy and delicious this Chicken Noodle Casserole is a tasty, filling and hearty weeknight dinner that the whole family will as for seconds of.
Lately we’ve been wanting quick and easy weeknight dinners around this house. Mainly because we just have all the things going on and honestly I don’t see that slowing down anytime soon unfortunately. But that’s life. As much as I want some down time, I don’t see it happening.
So, being from Minnesota instead of the term “casserole” we use the term hot dish. That name might be foreign to many of you guys, but thats usually what we call it. Tater Tot Hot Dish, Tuna Noodle Hot Dish, etc. Why do we say hot dish? Well its baked hot in a dish.
The term casserole is actually technically just the pan or dish it’s cooked in so I think that is why everyone uses that term instead of our up north speak!
