My husband saw a frozen version of this in the freezer section at the grocery, I turned it over to look at the fat and caloric count and quickly told him NO...I decided that I would make a healthier low-fat version.

This was delicious! Thank you! I followed the recipe except I topped it with Swiss instead of colby-monterey jack. At first I was worried that it would be dry because it cooked on the stove for 20 minutues and then an additional 35 minutes in the oven. I used the flash frozed bulk packed boneless chicken breasts. They were moist and very flavorfull. I pureed an additional serving and my 11 month old gobbled it up!
