Chicken Noodle Casserole

Is it time to re-cycle the Thanksgiving leftovers at your house?  This recipe can easily be made with leftover turkey and whatever veggies you might have available. I think I'd like to add some frozen veggies, cooked... That is, if only I had leftover turkey! I took a 20lb turkey to Thanksgiving dinner and came home to an empty refrigerator. I sure hope my kids eat well this week! But, I got a "deal" at the grocery this afternoon. They marked down organic chicken breasts from over $7 per lb to $1 per lb. Chicken breasts it will be at my house! Every once in a while I get lucky!
