Monday Night Dinner Quick Recipe Chicken Casserole

So everyone looks for those quick recipes that will fill them and their families correct? Or even families who dine on a budget. (That is us!)  But how many meals are there that are actually yummy, filling, and easy on the pockets? Will I have one for you!  It is a chicken casserole.  But this is not your mama's casserole.

1-2 lb(s) chicken skinned and deboned (we prefer breasts but thighs work just as well)
1/2-1 box of ditalini noodles (these are really small noodles)
1 can of cream of asparagus soup (or any cream of soup you like)
1 can of cream of chicken with herbs (or again any that you like)
Small bag of peas (or another vegetable)
Small bag of Parmesan cheese ( actually used the rest of our bottle Parmesan we use in spaghetti)

Now here are where you can have several variances.  I like to slowly fry the chicken in extra virgin olive oil.  While that is going I start a pot of water for my noodles.  After the noodles are done, I then add the two cans of soup with 2 cans of milk.  I stir it until it is smooth and then add the noodles.  After the chicken is done, I cut it up and add it with the Parmesan.

I add salt and pepper to taste.  And feed my family.  This makes between 4-8 servings.  Add bread or a salad to finish it off.
