Baked Chicken Alfredo

You know how you get a certain taste for something, and no one makes it? Oh sure some restaurants get close, some recipes get close, but when it comes down to it, you just have to make it yourself. Thus this weekend's delight.It's a combination of chicken, noodles,  mushrooms,  onions, garlic and cheese. sprinkled with a few bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.. I'm cheating by using a jarred Alfredo, but it will still be wonderful.

Start  by marinating 4 chicken skinless chicken breasts with 2 cups of chicken broth, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, 2 chopped cloves of garlic, 6 oz sliced mushrooms,   and 4 tablespoons Italian salad dressing. Let marinate for at least an hour. 
Take the chicken and place in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Bake for 45 minutes. Let them cool and rest, then slice into bite sized pieces.
While the chicken is resting, boil 1/2 pound egg noodles. drain and layer the noodles in the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish add the diced chicjen 1/2 an onion diced, 2 jats of alfredo sauce. top with bread crumbs and cheese.
bake until sauce is bubbly and bread crumbs have browned. -- abour an hour
