Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for baking dish
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves, cut in half horizontally
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 12 ounces wide egg noodles
  • 12 ounces Broccolini or broccoli florets
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup coarse fresh breadcrumbs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a 3-quart broiler-proof baking dish with oil. Bring milk to a simmer in a pot. Add chicken; simmer until cooked, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Remove pot from heat; whisk in mustard and cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Shred chicken. Cook noodles in a pot of boiling salted water 3 minutes. Add Broccolini; cook until noodles and Broccolini are al dente, 2 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain noodles and Broccolini; toss with chicken, sauce, pasta water, and cheddar. Transfer to baking dish.

  3. Toss breadcrumbs with oil; sprinkle over casserole. Cover with parchment-lined foil; bake 20 minutes. Uncover casserole; increase heat to broil. Cook until top is golden brown in places and breadcrumbs are crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.
