Chicken Tetrazini

4-5 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
½ c. butter
½ c. flour
3 c. chicken broth
2 c. milk
1 c. whipping cream
1 ½ pkg. angel hair pasta, cooked
Sliced mushrooms (optional, but very tasty)
Bread crumbs (don’t buy the cheap kind, they need a good flavor)
Monterey jack and cheddar cheese, shredded

In saucepan, melt butter, then add flour. Add chicken broth and milk, slowly while stirring. Stir constantly until thickened. Remove from heat. Add whipping cream. Add salt and pepper. Place cooked noodles in casserole dish. (should fill 2/3 of pan) Layer chicken on noodles, then mushrooms, and cheeses. Finally, sprinkle a thick layer of breadcrumbs on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

I forgot about this recipe until I was looking for something to make for Cuqui. Another friend brought this dish to us when Ellie was born and I HAD to have the recipe.
