Chicken and Ramen Noodle Dump Casserole #SundaySupper

Life doesn't get much easier than meals where you open packages, shred leftover chicken and dump them all into a casserole.  In this case it doesn't get much more delicious either!!


The Sunday Funday Blogging group is sharing Chicken Delight recipes this week.

Stacy of Food Lust People Love is hosting this week and asked us to share our favorite Chicken recipes.
We eat a lot of chicken here.  I like to roast a chicken for dinner one night, use the leftovers for another dinner or two and use the carcass to create chicken stock.

Let's take a look at the recipes being shared today.......




Pre packaged Ramen Noodles sans most of the flavor packets, Shallot and Chive Boursin Cheese, Milk, Leftover Chicken, Frozen Vegetables and Shredded Cheese are dumped into a 9x13" pan and put into the oven to bake.  In less than an hour you are enjoying a healthy and tasty dinner.

Sometimes, as in this past week, I don't have time to roast a chicken. When this happens you can always make a Whole Chicken in a Crockpot  or grab a Rotisserie Chicken from the grocer with the same results. 




I'm still staying very busy with our Lenten Fish Fry that I run for our Parish.  I could never do this on my own and I am very grateful I have such a huge staff of volunteers.

During times like these I rely on quick and easy meals that are still deliciously satisfying.  This casserole is one of these kinds of meals as were these Chicken and Cheese Sheet Pan Nachos that I shared last week using the same chicken.

  1. I adore Boursin and everything it is used in! Casseroles are the best for easy delicious dinners!
    Your aside about the church fish fry reminded me that I should check with a nearby church next week and see if they are doing one again this year. It's been a favorite of ours in prior Lenten seasons.

    1. You should Stacy. Our first week we only had 214 meals sold because people weren't sure. This past Friday we were up to 319 so much less waste. We used to have a local food kitchen come for the leftovers but they couldn't this year due to COVID. We ended up packaging the tons of leftovers from that first week into individual packages, freezing it and offering it to our Food Pantry clients. They were very happy as well.

  2. Save those extra seasoning packets for soup. I love how economical ramen noodles are. I haven't made a casserole with them yet but I will now. Yours look lush.
