Cheesy Chicken Shortcake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ppaperdoll

This recipe came from Country Home magazine's "Stay for Supper" cookbook. It's one of the first recipes I learned how to cook when I was a newly-wed and has been a favorite ever since. Serve it over slices of your favorite cornbread. Also good over steamed rice.

Served this over toasted french bread and both Dh and I liked it very much. It's great comfort food and a wonderful way to use leftover poultry. Didn't and won't change a thing.
