  2. 1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh baby portobello mushrooms
  3. 1 cup chopped onion
  4. 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  5. ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  6. 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
  7. ½ teaspoon salt
  8. ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  9. 3 cups chicken broth
  10. 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  11. 1 (16-ounce) package medium egg noodles, cooked according to package directions
  12. 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  13. 2 cups frozen peas
  14. 1 (5-ounce) package shredded Parmesan cheese
  15. ¼ cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  16. 2 teaspoons olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 6 minutes. Stir in flour, thyme, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in broth and cream; cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in noodles, chicken, peas, and cheese until well combined, and cook until heated through. Spoon mixture into prepared pan. In a small bowl, stir together bread crumbs and oil; sprinkle onto casserole.
  4. Bake until hot and bubbly, 35 to 45 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  1. Kitchen Tip: Pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store for this recipe; you'll get about 3 cups of meat from it.
