Baked chicken curry & noodle casserole

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 ounces Uncooked Medium Egg Noodles
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
8 ounces Boneless chicken breasts (without skin), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 small Red onion, diced
3 teaspoons Curry powder (or more, if desired)
1½ cup Low-sodium chicken broth
10 ounces Evaporated skim milk
1½ tablespoon Cornstarch
1 cup Frozen peas
1½ cup Sliced fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Dry bread crumbs
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and onion and stir until the chicken begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Add the curry powder and continue stirring 2 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and reduce heat to low. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and evaporated skim milk together until the cornstarch is dissolved. Stir the cornstarch into the skillet, heat to simmering and simmer 2 minutes.

Pour the contents of the skillet into a large bowl. When the pasta is done, drain well. Add the cooked pasta, peas, mushrooms, lemon juice and salt and pepper to the curry sauce. Toss well. Pour the mixture into an 11 x 9-inch baking dish and sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.

Bake until the edges are bubbling and the crumbs are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
