I made this because I'm trying to eat a little more healthfully and because I'm trying to clean out my refrigerator. ;o)

What a quick and easy dish without sacrificing flavor! This recipe is a great way to use canned chicken or left over chicken. I usually have a can or two of chicken in the motorhome if I need to come up with a dish in a hurry so this is really an exciting find. Loved the crunch that the chopped pecans added too. Thanks for sharing ANOTHER great recipe, Chicagopm!
