Green Chile Chicken

Green Chile Chicken

Not to be confused with “White Chicken Chili”, Green Chile Chicken is one of the few casseroles I will eat. Tuna casserole as a child has biased me against most casseroles to this day. For those of you with a heat sensitive palette, don’t worry. It’s not too spicy and the heat level is easily controlled. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup of chopped jalapeno. I usually use 1 cup or more and you can lower it to 1/4 if like. You can even omit the jalapenos and add another can green chiles if you prefer. This is great anytime of year but is a perfect cold weather comfort food. I think you’ll find yourself craving it.

  7. At this point start to prepare your egg noodles. Do not overcook, cook for the least amount of time called for. If your package says cook 5-7 minutes, cook for 5 minutes. Add Cream of Mushroom Soup and cook on medium heat until heated through. This is also where you add the optional Velveeta cheese. Lower heat to low. Add the chicken and mix together.
