  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup chopped carrots

  • ½ cup chopped celery

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 3 cups cooked whole-wheat egg noodles

  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

  • ¾ cup thawed frozen peas

  • ½ cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add carrots and celery; cook, stirring, until almost softened, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until coated. Increase heat to medium-high and add milk.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
