Chicken Parmesan Casserole

I got this recipe off the web site. It actually called for Turkey, but I had Chicken, so chicken it was! I also made a few little adjustments, but I thought they turned out quite yummy. Joe even ate seconds AND he said he'd take some for leftovers tomorrow!!!! It's a miracle!

8 oz. spaghetti (I didn't have any so I used egg noodles, which were great!)
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup (I used cream of chicken, which was also yummy)
3/4 c. sour cream
1/4 c. milk (I used about a 1/2 to make it a bit more liquidy since I added extra noodles and broccoli)
1/3 c. paremesan cheese
3 c. broccoli (I did fresh broccoli crowns, but if you do this make sure you pre cook them for just a few minutes or it will be crunchy in your casserole dish)
2 c. chopped chicken (I cooked it in basil, garlic salt and pepper)

Mix soup, sour cream, paremesan cheese and milk together. Pre cook the broccoli (unless you use frozen) and add to the mixture. Cook the chicken and add that to the mixture as well. Spoon into a casserole dish and bake. I also covered mine in cheese before I stuck it in...cheese is ALWAYS a good addition. ;)

Bake in a Casserole dish at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.
