    I made this thought and it was delicious! I read the comments before making it and since some people said there didn’t seem to be enough sauce, I made a few changes.

    First, I used 10 oz of egg noodles since I wasn’t sure exactly how much 3 cups would be.

    For the sauce, I used 8 oz diced mushrooms, 4 Tbsp butter, 3 1/2 Tbsp flour, 3/4 c chicken broth (plus an extra splash) and 1 1/2 c milk. I also added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp Italian seasoning to the sauce. This didn’t take too long to thicken up once it started to simmer. After it was thickened to my liking, I removed the pan from the heat and stirred some grated (instead of shredded) parmesan. This resulted in an EXCELLENT sauce.

    I stirred the noodles, chicken and sauce together in the pan, topped that with the shredded cheddar, then topped that with the breadcrumbs.

    Based on how I made this, with the alterations, I will definitely be making it again! I think the recipe is a great base and can be adjusted to your own liking too.

    Sad! I have made a TON of recipes from this site – a reliable source for me – this was my first ever Simply Recipes flop. I hope you can re-work the recipe as the proportions are off and I am having to re-do the sauce to make enough and it is not over an hour to prep.

    Could the problem with the proportions be in the ingredient list–what is 3 cups of uncooked noodles? A weight for the noodles would be more accurate. Thanks!

    The proportions for me were off and ended up with a sticky mess, not enough liquid. I am thinking there may be a misprint in the recipe, where it is printed the chicken broth at 1/2c but the picture shows the cook adding a whole cup. Didn’t notice the proportions were off until everything was combined. Ended up adding more broth to everything in the dish and eating it as is because I ran out of time. I couldn’t recoup the texture but it was still tasty!

    Do I have to cook the raw chicken first and then mix?
