    Cookin'withGas's Note:

    This one dish recipe dates back to 1971, when I was all of 13, helping my mother make dinner...She got the recipe through a mail order recipe card club where you received a packet of recipes every 6 weeks or so...The original recipe was a victim of it's time with tons of meat, plenty of fat and lots of sodium! I've taken the original recipe and lightened it up a bit with less meat, tomato products that have no salt added and whole wheat pasta! Add a tossed green salad for a complete meal!

      I have been looking for this recipe card, which i had also received in the early 70's. I made this for my husband when we were first married, (35 years ago). He loved it and recently has asked me to make it. Thanks for the update on ingredients. I am going to make it tonight.

      This was very good-- I was deciding between 4 or 5 stars, and chose 5 due to the great, fresh taste and low fat/sodium. I 1/2d the recipe with no issues, and also cooked it on high for 4 hours in the crock-pot. I didn't change the liquid content, and it turned out just fine. My husband shredded his chicken and ate it, with the sauce, in a tortilla with cheddar cheese-- quite yummy. Thanks for a tasty, healthy recipe!

      I too received this recipe on a sample card many years ago. My family loved this dish, but since they are grown and gone, I haven't fixed it in years. When my friend broke her wrist, I wanted something special to take to her house. My card had deteriated so I looked at RecipeZaar site and found it. Thanks so much for posting it.
