Crumbed Chicken Pasta Bake

    1 hour

    This is a great way to use up leftover ingredients. It's even better if you make your own breadcrumbs with stale bread.

    This was really quick and easy. Full of flavour my family loved it. Will definitely make again. If making for young children don't add garlic powder or salt as its already very salty from the tinned soup.  -  21 Sep 2012


    this recipe is worth 5 stars because it can be modified to taste well. it is too dry on its own, and i recommend adding another can of soup or additional milk/sour cream. i also changed the vegetables - i included brocolli, peas, and mushrooms; and spices - italian seasoning with garlic/onion. this is also the perfect recipe to use with whole wheat pasta - as you can't taste the pasta. very easy to modify.  -  24 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This dish was terrific. Instead of the chicken tenderloins, I just used leftover roasted chicken that I had in the fridge. I also added a bit of milk and sour cream on top of the mixture once it was in the baking dish. I spread it on sort of like a frosting, before adding the bread crumbs. I also splashed a bit more milk around the edges just to liquify it a little more. It turned out perfect! My whole household said that I should make this again. It was a hit!  -  03 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
