Made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! I used leftover chicken from a roaster we had Friday. also substituted 28 oz chopped tomatoes, 14.5 oz fire roasted tomatoes with green chilis, 3 cups chicken stock and 1 Tbsp tomato paste in place of the diced tomatoes, sauce and 2c stock. I will make this again for sure
