Potato Chip Chicken and Noodle Casserole
Add some extra crunchy to an already tasty casserole with this potato chip creation.
It might sound crazy, but plenty of recipes call for potato chips. Adding your favorite salty snack atop a casserole dish easily adds that extra bit of crunch to an otherwise gooey recipe just might need. Potato chips aren't much different than panko - just tastier! Our potato chip casserole recipe uses spaghetti noodles and soup, giving it a unique and enviable texture and taste.
From the Chef: My favorite thing about this casserole has got to be the texture. The crushed potato chips add a nice crunch while the chicken soup makes it oh-so-creamy.
