Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Remove chicken from bones and cut into chunks (about 3 cups). Cook spaghetti/linguine according to package directions and add asparagus during the last minute of cooking. Drain and return to pain.

Meanwhile in a large skillet, cook mushrooms and pepper in hot butter over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir in flour and pepper until well combined. Add broth and milk all at once and cook, stirring frequently, until thickened and bubbly. Add mushroom mixture, chicken swiss cheese and half of lemon peel to pasta mixture and toss gently to coat. Spoon into large rectangular baking dish.

In a medium bowl, toss together bread cubes, olive oil and remaining lemon peel and spread over pasta mixture. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Personal Notes:
Can be made a day in advance but plan to bake longer to heat through (cover top with foil if bread cubes are getting too brown).

If serving a smaller crowd, divide the meal into 2 smaller baking dishes and freeze one for later.
