My mother used to make a casserole with chicken breast, cubed, ham, peas, noodles and some type of white sauce. This is from my child-hood memory, so I may have left something out.
It was always the first to go at church dinners. Unfortunately I never got the recipe and have been unable to duplicate it.

My mom made a casserole after Thanksgiving that used up leftover turkey (but you could use chicken or ham). She added peas, carrots and potatoes in a white sauce (which was a thin "gravy") and topped off the whole thing with canned biscuits, then baked it in the oven. It is still one of my favorite dishes.
