Make it Monday! Easy Chicken Casserole!

Last week while looking around at the blog hops and linky parties I came across this recipe.... over at On Sutton Place as soon as I saw it I thought..... 

hmmmmm that looks good and hey I have all that stuff... 
and so off I went to the cupboard and started to make it for supper... 
That's when I realized that no I didn't have everything for it....
But the Chicken was in the oven almost cooked and so I thought substitute today make it right soon...

Here is the actual recipe... (with my two cents added in)

Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil.
Cook about 8 oz. of egg noodles according to package directions.
when cooked drain noodles.
While noodles are cooking mix the following:
1 can cream of celery soup
3/4 can milk
(it works best to use a whisk)
3 heaping Tablespoons Light Mayo 
(I recommend mixing in your round casserole dish to save on the clean up)
1 pkg. Steam fresh Singles Peas (or any frozen peas) 
Shred two chicken breasts 
(original recipe uses rotisserie chicken from the supermarket... major time saver!)
add everything into the soup, milk, and mayo mix.
Bake at 350 for 30 - 40 minutes 
until it's toasty brown and bubbly around the edges
Here is how Ann's looks...

Now for my substitutions.... 
I only had no cream of celery soup, no peas, and no egg noodles... so I used cream of mushroom soup, corn, and regular pasta...
Here's mine...

(looks a little light but that's just the camera lightening)
I was a little worried that I had changed it to much but let me tell ya... It was good! 
That's an understatement it was great!
Delaney wasn't really a huge fan but she isn't one for foods that are all cooked together, or that all taste the same. 
All in all I will be making this again and I can't wait to see if the taste changes much with the celery soup rather than the mushroom... 
I will keep you posted... 

Give it a try, your family might just love it! Do you have any simple suppers you'd like to share? Let me know in the comments and you might just see it here on a future make it Monday!
