Chicken Macaroni Casserole with Gouda Cheese

Chicken, Gouda, and Macaroni Bake

D. Rattray
This is a tasty casserole, and the Gouda cheese can be replaced with a sharp Cheddar. I have used packaged roasted chicken cubes or pre-cooked rotisserie chicken in this when pressed for time.


  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni or small shells
  • salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 to 4 ounces smoked gouda cheese, shredded or cut in small pieces
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, optional
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons butter, melted


Cook macaroni in boiling salted water as package directs. Drain and set aside.

In a saucepan over medium low heat, melt butter; add flour. Cook, stirring, until flour mixture is well blended and bubbly. Gradually stir in chicken broth and cream. Stir in cheese until melted and smooth. Add pepper, to taste, along with parsley, if using. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Add the chicken and vegetables; cook for about 1 minute longer.

Combine the sauce with cooked and drained macaroni; pour into a 2-quart casserole. Toss bread crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle over the casserole. Bake at 350° for about 25 minutes, until bubbly and browned.
Serves 4 to 6.

Don't Skip The Chicken, Member myfishjack

This recipe is delicious if you enjoy casseroles. I substituted the corn and carrots for broccoli florets. My hubby has IBS, his intestines do not tolerate corn well. And chicken casseroles always taste better with broccoli, in my opinion. Do not over bake this recipe though, it will dry out the ingredients too much. To prevent the bread crumbs from burning, I covered the dish for the first 10 minutes, then removed the aluminum foil cover. To save time I used Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips, which are precooked.
