Not only is this a delicious meal, it comes together in a snap and its a great way to get rid of some leftover chicken in your fridge. When I made this, the feedback from my family was ‘you didn’t make enough!’. So, be sure to make 2 if you have some hungry people to feed! And, this recipe is one I entered into the Pillsbury Monthly Bake-off for October, and its now being voted on in the finals, so you know its going to be good! You can check it out HERE.
