Chicken Noodle Casserole

**Originally posted in 2006 on my old cooking blog. I need to make this again. So yummy!

My mom made this all the time when we were growing up. It is a very comforting casserole and delicious! This is an excellent dish to freeze for later use. It's very kid-friendly and is a great casserole to take to a sick friend or someone who has just had a new baby.

1 5-6 oz. bag of egg noodles
1 can cream of chicken soup
2/3 cup evaporated milk or cream
2 cups cubed American cheese or use a can of cheddar cheese soup
2 cups diced, cooked chicken
1 cup celery slices
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup diced sweet red pepper or pimento
2 cups buttered bread cubes

Cook noodles according to package directions and drain. Mix soup and milk. Heat, stirring constantly. Add cheese, chicken, celery and peppers. Mix with noodles. Pour into greased 2-quart casserole dish. Top with bread cubes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until lightly browned and bubbly. Makes 6 servings.
