Sour Cream Noodle Bake with Ground Chicken

Have you ever tried the Pioneer Woman's Sour Cream Noodle Bake?

I've got two words for ya. Holy Moley!

I changed up the recipe a tad bit to suit my husband and I (for example, I haven't been able to bring myself to buy ground beef more than twice in the past two years so, we used ground chicken instead) and it turned out great!

Ingredients (altered for our taste):
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 can 15-ounces Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  •  Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 12 ounces, weight Egg Noodles
  • 8 oz Sour Cream
  • 12 oz Cottage Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Sliced Green Onions
  • 1 cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground chuck in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomato sauce. 1/2 teaspoon salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Stir, then simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.

Cook egg noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add to noodles and stir. Add green onions and stir.

To assemble, add half of the noodles to a baking dish. Top with half the meat mixture, then sprinkle on half the grated cheddar. Repeat with noodles, meat, then a final layer of cheese. (or you can just mix it all together, your choice.)

Bake for 20 minutes, or until all cheese is melted.

To be honest, I initially made this meal to share; half for my husband and I, and half to surprise my mom with since she is going to have surgery this week. I'm sad to say that the other half never made it to my mom. We just liked this meal so much; we had it for lunch the next day too!

Needless to say, we are making it up to my mom by having her over for lasagna tonight. Thankfully, she doesn't even know that we ate the food we initially made for her, unless she is reading this now. (Love ya, mom!)
