This is a scrumptious dish I got from the Rachel Ray show. I think she made it faster, but I take a bit longer in the kitchen. ;) I also added 1 - 2 tsp poultry seasoning,sprinkle of creole seasoning,salt and pepper to taste in my attempt at this. (for ZWT3 - Southern spin on a chicken pot pie- comfort food!)
