  • 4-5 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 1 can cream of celery soup

  • 2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 scant teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Prepare Chicken:
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and simmer until tender. Shred the cooked chicken for the casserole.
  3. Cook Pasta:
    • Boil pasta according to the package instructions. Ensure it’s slightly undercooked as it will finish in the oven. Drain and set aside.
  4. Sauté Onion and Garlic:
    • In a skillet, sauté chopped onion and minced garlic in butter until softened and aromatic.
  5. Prepare Soup Mixture:
    • In a bowl, mix both cans of soup without diluting with water. Set aside.
  6. Layering:
    • Spray the prepared baking dish with cooking spray. Begin layering with a portion of the cooked pasta at the bottom.
  7. Layering Sequence:
    • Follow this sequence for the layers: pasta, shredded chicken, sautéed onion mix, shredded cheddar cheese, and a layer of the soup mixture. Repeat until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of cheese on top.
  8. Pour Chicken Broth:
    • Pour 1 to 1-1/2 cups of chicken broth over the top of the casserole to keep it moist during baking.
  9. Bake Covered:
    • Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 35-45 minutes or until the casserole is heated through and bubbly.
  10. Uncover and Brown:
    • Uncover the casserole and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
