It can be made completely on the stovetop in less than 30 minutes.

Or if you like a crunchy “casserole top” you can sprinkle breadcrumbs over the pasta and bake it for a few minutes.

If you happen to have a large oven-safe saute pan it’s a true one-pot dinner. However you can easily pour the pasta into a baking dish before you pop it in the oven.

  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast
  • 12 ounces wide egg noodles
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen english peas
  • 8 ounces shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs, optional


  1. Place the butter in the large oven safe saute pan and set over medium heat. Add the chopped onions, celery, and carrots. Saute for 5-8 minutes to soften.

  2. Meanwhile chop the chicken breasts into small bite-size pieces. Once the veggies are softened, add the chicken, salt and thyme. Saute another 5 minutes to cook the chicken pieces partially through.
  3. Add the broth and pasta. Stir to soak the pasta. Cover the pan and simmer for 6-7 minutes to cook the pasta through. Then remove the lid and stir in the frozen peas, shredded cheese, and cream. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately or bake!
  4. This step is entirely optional: Preheat the oven to to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over the top of the pasta. Bake for 15-20 minutes to develop a crusty top. You can transfer the pasta to a separate baking dish if you don't have an oven-safe saute pan.

    Hi! I made this tonight…. soooo delicous! Thank you so much! I subbed fresh chopped red/green peppers and canned mushrooms for the celery and carrots, since my husband’s not a fan. Worked out great!! Thanks again!

    I made this last night and it was amazing! I left out the peas because no one in my house will eat peas but me; maybe next time I’ll toss in some chopped broccoli for the color though. This was super easy, fast, and so delicious! It will be even better this winter on a cold night. Love love love it!
