I made this recipe tonight, and it was excellent! I liked all the ingredients in this dish. I wouldn't change a thing. My son especially liked all the cheese.

I found it a little salty, but that would be easily solved by using a low sodium soup. I would also recommend that you drain the juice from the chicken before adding the other ingredients, as the final product was quite runny until it was chilled. I would like to try this without the velveeta as well... if anyone has tried this let me know how you did it. Serving it with a toasted garlic ciabbatta bun really topped it off.

very good - i added a small can of coarsely chopped water chestnuts for a bit of crunch.
