Chicken Noodle Skillet-Casserole

This is another really quick and easy recipe that we have often.  Totally comfort food.

2 cups thin egg noodles
1 chicken bullion cube
Olive oil
Skinless, boneless frozen chicken thighs...about a pound (I cover bottom of skillet)
1 tsp rotisserie chicken seasoning
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, thinly sliced
2-3 ribs celery, thinly sliced
1/2 cup frozen peas (optional...I didn't use them this time, but usually do)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup, plus about 1/3 can water
Salt & Pepper to taste

In one pot, boil egg noodles until tender according to package directions.  For flavor, I add a bullion cube to the water.
In skillet, cook oil (about 1-2 tbsp), chicken, onion, carrots, garlic, seasoning and celery on medium heat, covered, until chicken is cooked through and veggies start to tenderize.  Stir occasionally.  This usually takes about 10 minutes.  At this point, I chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.  Add soup, water, and peas (if using).  Bring to simmer, and continue to simmer until the veggies are fork-tender and peas are heated through.  Stir in egg noodles, add salt and pepper to taste.

This makes two heaping servings.  I think I calculated them to be about 60 carbs each, so definitely not a low-carb meal, but delicious anyway.
