This is a recipe I've had forever. I ran across it the other day while I was organizing my recipe files. I've changed it over the years to suit our tastes. It originally had a cracker crumb topping, but we found we like it better with cheese on top. This is a fast and easy weeknight meal.

In a large bowl, mix together cut up chicken, soup, milk, melted butter and peas. Add cooked noodles & 1 cup cheese; stir to coat. Transfer to your dutch oven. Top with the additional 1 cup cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 350°. Use 1 1/2 rings on top and 1 ring on the bottom. Serves 8.
The Finished Product
This would be another good camping meal. It is quick and easy and pretty tasty. I normally try not to use much cream soup, but its good in this. I like how simple this recipe is and I always have the ingredients on hand if I get short on time. We gave this a B.
