This versatile recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law when I was a new bride 37 years ago. It has been enjoyed by our family and guests and at potluck suppers more times than I can count. Folks love the chicken and noodles in a delectable cheese sauce.—Eleanor McElroy, Kernersville, North Carolina
