Cook chicken in seasoned water; remove chicken and save stock (to use in making cream sauce).  Cook noodles; drain.  Melt butter in a large saucepan.  Stir in flour.  Add milk and chicken stock.  Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until sauce thickens.

To the cream sauce add sour cream, lemon juice, mushrooms, seasoned salt, Accent, nutmeg, cayenne, paprika, salt, pepper and parsley flakes.  Mix well.  Cut chicken into large bite-sized pieces (measure 4 cups).  Butter a 3-quart casserole.

Place drained noodles in casserole.  Add layer of chicken.  Pour some sauce over chicken.  Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Repeat layers, ending with cheese on top.  Heat in 350 degree oven until bubbly, about 25 minutes.
