Servings: 8 servings
- 2 ½ cups chicken broth
- ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 packet onion soup mix
- 3 cups diced chicken
- 2 15- ounce cans green beans drained (or 2 ½ cups fresh or frozen)
- 12 ounces uncooked rotini
- 2 cups french fried onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bring a pot of salted water to boil over medium-high heat. Add the pasta and cook to package directions. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring chicken broth and half a cup of milk to a simmer. While the broth is coming to a simmer, whisk together flour and remaining 1 cup of milk in a small bowl until thick and smooth. Pour into the saucepan with the broth and continue whisking over low heat while it simmers. Continue to whisk until thickened; about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl, combine thickened chicken broth mixture, sour cream and onion soup mix until well mixed. Add chicken, noodles and green beans and stir to coat completely. Pour into a large baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Uncover and top with the french fried onions; bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until onions are crispy and golden brown.
Cool for several minutes. Garnish with fresh minced parsley if desired.
