Yummy!! I made this using what I had in leftover chicken. I only substituted red pepper flakes and a little extra garlic and butter to original recipe. Made generous amount and perfect to divide into portions to take for lunch at work. Reheated well too. I always look for recipes that Kittencal submits; they're always good!! Thanks for sharing great recipe to use with holiday leftover turkey or chicken!!
