French Onion Chicken Noodle Casserole

French Onion Chicken Noodle Casserole Recipe - egg noodles, french onion dip, cream of chicken soup, cheese, chicken topped with French fried onions - LOVE this casserole! Can make ahead and freezer for later. You can even split it between two foil pans - one for now and one for the freezer. Super easy main dish with only 6 ingredients that tastes great! Everyone RAVES about this casserole!

One of our new favorites is the French Onion Potato Casserole I made a few months ago. It is SO delicious. I make it all the time. I started thinking about what else I could use french onion dip in and thought about this chicken noodle casserole. I have a "Cracked Out" version that is crazy good, so I substituted the crack flavors for the french onion dip. To up the onion flavor, I topped the casserole with a can of fried onions. This was SO good. We ate this for dinner and leftover for lunch a few days. This would also be a good freezer meal. Just mix up the casserole and pop in the freezer until you are ready to serve it. Let the casserole thaw in the fridge all day. If it is still frozen when you are ready to bake, add about 15 minutes to the baking time.

  4. It came out really well. The french fried onions on top gave a nice flavor. I think I will add a can of mushrooms next time.

    1. Two cans of Cream of Chicken? What size cans?

  5. For the french onion dip, is it just the dip mix? or do I get it in the cold section. Actually I just bought the dip mix and then bought sour cream in case it was dip and not just the mix. So I guess my question is, should I mix the dip mix with the sour cream or just use the seasoning from the mix? :)

    1. This recipe uses the French onion dip - so use the sour cream and the mix. I use Kraft french onion dip.

    2. I used the container version--already a dip.

    3. Stephanie@Plain Chicken,
      The recipe does not state what size of cream of chicken soup to use! Two cans of what size???

      Delete
    4. 10 1/2 ounce size. Unless a recipe specifically says a size, I always go with the regular can size.

  9. I wonder if you can use other kind of cheese.

  10. This is on the menu plan for this week. I have the French Onion Dip with Bacon on hand, and no cheddar cheese so planning on Monteray Jack instead. Can't wait till Thursday to make it :) And I use canned chicken all the time but live in an area where the Grabill County Meats are readily available so use that brand.

  11. I ran across this on Pinterest, and you made me stop in my tracks and lick my lips. Then I almost licked the screen. Just kidding (kind of).

  13. This turned out great! So much flavor! My husband kept commenting on how delicious it tasted. Thank you for posting this recipe! I ran across this on pinterest. I used Colby and Monterery Jack cheese as I cannot have Cheddar cheese and used 2 cups french fried onion vs. the 1 cup. I will be adding this to my menu planner. :)

  15. My first comment on PC.. this turned out surprisingly good!! Only a couple minor changes based on our preferences.. I used a tighter noodle, rotini.. and Cream of Celery so the flavor wasn't so strong.. heading into the baking step, I really thought this was going to be really salty.. after baking, it was perfect (for our family's taste buds).. thanks for another great recipe. :-)

  19. Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! It was a hit with the entire family. I boiled the chicken breasts before chopping them, used Great Value French Onion Dip and doubled the French fried onions on the top. Great comfort food recipe for the fall season :)

  29. Do you think this would be good with a different topping, possibly crushed crackers? I do not have french fried onions on hand

    1. Sure! You can even cook it without any topping. Enjoy!

  31. Made this tonight and it was excellent. It made a lot so I made two 8X8 dishes and put one in the freezer. I added extra cheddar cheese on top before I put on the french fried onions. This one is a keeper for sure!!

  34. I discovered this recipe on Pinterest several months ago and it is now on my favorites list! The onion dip is a great addition to many casseroles!

  35. Like Dean`s French Onion Dip in the Frig section? Not familiar with the packet kind?? Since you mix it with Sour Cream, it should be. That`s my hubby`s fave!

  40. Any idea how many calories for what size serving? It is VERY yummy, just trying to log it in my food diary.

  41. What is a serving size and how many calories would that be? My family LOVED it, but I am trying to log it in my food diary.

  42. Made this last night & it was sooo good!!
    Does anyone know how well it reheats? Thinking about reheating it in the oven so the onions don't go soggy on me.

    PS - we made it according to directions & had way more than 10 servings. VERY filling, but oh so delicious!!
