Need recipe for Ingredients at Hand

Hey! Can you give me a quick recipe using the ingredients I have?
The ingredients I have at hand are: shredded chicken, cream cheese, milk (thawing from freezer),
butter, corn and peas. There must be an Italian dish in here somewhere with a cream sauce but I'm not sure how to get started.
Thanks!

  1. I would make a roux, stir the milk in slowly, add the cream cheese and stir gently over low heat until incorporated. Taste and season and taste and season.... then, add the veggies and shredded chicken and stir gently until just warmed through.

        Add some parmesan and garlic if you have them.

    2. Saute the corn and peas in butter over medium-low heat and cook until fragrant. Add the shredded chicken, turn up the heat to medium, and cook until warm. Season with salt and pepper. Discard the cream cheese and milk.

      1. I'm sure McDonald's, Wendy's or In n Out Burger can help you out with a yummy recipe!

            1. Seems more classic American to me. What about chicken pot pie or chicken a la king?

                  Me, too. My first thought was chicken pot pie with a cream cheese crust.
