    CaribbeanQueen's Note:

    This is basically my grandma's recipe but I lightened it up a bit by using a few low-fat ingredients. If fat and calories are not an issue for you, use the 'real' stuff. Tastes great either way! This is also good with left-over turkey.

      This was a HUGE hit in my family. I had my in-laws over for dinner and they couldn't get enough of it. I left out the pimientos and put it over rice. This is a DEFINITE keeper! You could also use a cooked chicken from the deli section of the grocery store and just chop it up if you need a quick meal.

      I made this with turkey and used frozen mixed veggies (peas, carrots, corn & beans) instead of frozen peas. I also left out the pimientos as I didn't have any. My father happened to stop just as dinner was about to be served so he stayed. Between him and my husband they practically inhaled it! I served it over Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits and it was FANTASTIC. Will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe!

      Boiled the chicken in broth with a bay leaf and a little bit of poultry seasoning. Used yellow and orange peppers and omitted pimentos. This is a quick & delicious recipe!! A keeper!
