Kids in the Kitchen - Chicken noodle casserole

I join forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady each week
to bring you this family friendly recipe link up. It is our desire to encourage
families to cook and eat together. Meals cooked at home are healthier, and time
spent together in the kitchen is good for families!

We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool. I’m teaching the boys to
put together healthy family meals, life skills, and budgeting, as well as teaching them tips for cooking in the kitchen. We encourage real food vs. processed food. Let’s bring the family, back to the table!

Chicken noodle casserole: 

Cook a pot of egg noodles, or another favorite -  boil chicken strips in separate pot of water 
Cut fully cooked chicken into bite size pieces - Make homemade frugal cheese sauce (Recipe Here) 
Drain noodles and add chicken and cheese sauce - stir together, put into casserole dish 
Top with crunchy onions (Durkey) - brown in oven at 350 degrees 

Onions and broccoli or other veggies can easily be added to this casserole 
 gluten free noodles can be substituted for egg noodles if needed 

*TIP - our little guys use regular table knives to chop onions and veggies. They are learning to 
treat them as if they are very sharp. When the time is right - they will be well practiced.
 Adult supervision is always important in the kitchen with kiddos! 

Happy Spring! We are looking forward to our garden project - are you planting this year?
