Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
