When it begins to boil add noodles. Cook 8-10 minutes or until just about done.) Brown meat until it just begins to caramelize. Add peas and corn and basil. Add 1 1/2 cups water. In small bowl add 1 cup water and gravy mix. Now add to Extra large pan with chicken, peas, corn, basil. Next add the noodles and allow to simmer about 15-20 minutes so all ingredients blend.
