In a large pot of salted water, cook egg noodles according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.

In the same pot, over medium-high heat, add butter and let melt until it starts to foam.  Add leftover chicken and cook in melted butter for about 2 minutes.  If you wanted to, dice and sautee an onion for an extra layer of flavor!

Reduce heat to medium and add remaining ingredients to pan and stir to combine.  Cook, until simmering and the peas and carrots are heated through – about 5 minutes.

Sorry, this one is kinda blurry.

Add pasta back to the pot and carefully stir to combine.  Let cook another 2-3 minutes, allowing the pasta to absorb some of the sauce, and warm back up.
