Thaw the diced chicken in the refrigerator overnight. Drain it thoroughly, if needed, on the day of the assembly.
CCP: Hold under refrigeration (41 degrees F or lower) until ready for assembly.
Heat the chicken broth and water to boiling.
Slowly stir the onions, carrots, and noodles into the boiling water. Then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.
The pasta will NOT be al dente. Pasta prepared for casseroles is undercooked and will continue to cook to al dente during baking.
The pasta may also be cooked in a steamer or combi oven. Different steamers and combi ovens vary in time and settings, so check with the manufacturer for correct instructions.
The pasta amount is based on USDA Food Buying Guide. Overcooking or hot holding pasta for long periods of time will increase the volume and the yield.
Drain the pasta and vegetables well, but reserve the broth for step __.
In a separate pot, melt the margarine. Whisk in the flour and stir until smooth.
Slowly add the reserved broth and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the mixture is thickened.
Gradually add the flour and broth mixture, milk, pepper, marjoram, parsley flakes, and chicken to the noodle mixture.
Stir the mixture gently to combine.
Cook over medium heat until heated through and thickened.
CCP: Heat to 165 degrees F or higher for 15 seconds at the completion of the cooking process.
