Similar to tuna noodle casserole, but made with chicken.

I changed this recipe quite a bit. I'm very glad that I did, too! What I basically did was I marinated the chicken in dried thyme, lemon juice, and lemon zest overnight instead of adding just the thyme during the recipes creation. I cooked up the chicken as directed and then followed the rest of the recipe's processs. BTW, I used the "No Yolk" broad egg white noodles (about 6 ounces cooked), and doubled the mushrooms. For my fellow Weight Watchers folks, it came out to 7 pts for 6 servings by using those noodles and Lactaid 100% NonFat Milk and Kraft's Natural Shredded Cheese. Their version gets a 3 while I give mine a 4 or 4.5 because I feel that it needed more mushrooms.
