Remove from heat. Stir in nutmeg, Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Add up to 1/2 cup of the remaining milk as needed to thin.

Top with 1/4 of the mozzarella and 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Top with another layer of noodles. Pour another 1/4 of the sauce, 1/4 of the cheese and 1/3 of the chicken.
